Gladys M. O'Brien
The Guest Book is expired.
81, of Massillon, passed away on Friday, July 11, 2014, at her home. She was born on Feb. 14, 1933, in New Cumberland, Ohio. Gladys had been a waitress at the former Red Lantern. Her home was her pride and joy. She kept it immaculately and was ready to entertain at a moment's notice. Her passion was going to auctions at Rex's Salvage and traveling with the love of her life. She was preceded in death by her son, Patrick Black; her parents, Frank and Susie Fry; and two brothers and one sister.
She is survived by her loving, devoted husband, Carl E. O'Brien whom she married on April 5, 1966; her children: Michael (Brenda) Black, Tami (Kevin) Crawford and Kelly O'Brien and beloved daughter- in-law Veronica O'Brien Baker; her step-daughters: Sharon (Donnie) Rittenhouse and Carol (David) Horst; 13 grandchildren and three great grandchildren; and her sweet dog Summer.
A family celebration of her life will be held to share our great memories at a later date. Please think of her fondly as you remember her life. She will be sadly missed. To leave an online remembrance, visit:
