I just heard of the passing of your beloved Gladys. She was one of my instructors at Mounds Midway School of Nursing (1973-76). When my mother was at Midway Hospital with cancer Gladys stopped in to visit with her and I'm sure she showed my mom much compassion and kindness. I am so very sorry for your loss. She was one of the fine instructors that made that nursing school what it was.
I'm sorry for your loss. Your mother was just a wonderful, wonderful lady and I'm so glad I got the opportunity to know her. I will always remember her smile and warm heart and I will miss her greatly. You are all in my thoughts.
When I think of Gladys, I think of her calm, reassuring hand on my back when I was a student nurse in the operating room. She helped us overcome our fears and educated and empowered us to be able to minister to others. I am sure that she was a significant powerful influence on many, many nurses. I am very sorry for your loss.
Gladys was a very special person, thank you for allowing me to help care for her in her final months here on earth. I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
We first met Gladys and Ray when we were all young(ish) people in our 30s. Gladys was a standout ... kind, fun, and she and Ray could cook a marvelous baked salmon. I remember one evening at their house, where I had to out maneuver George/Marha (the Siamese cats) for every forkful. Great evening, great food, great company. Other nights when Clif was in town included the Japanese flute. Her carer in nursing and her work in hospice were admirable. I can think of no better person to care for the sick and dying.
Gladys, it was an honor to have known you.
Ray, Steve & Mark,
I am so sorry to hear of Gladys passing. I recall her fondly from our years growing up in New Brighton. I'll always remember a woman with a pleasant personality and s quick smile. You are in my prayers. God Bless you all.
Gladys was a tried and true friend of mine We were classmates at Mounds-Midway School of Nursing. May she rest in peace.
