Gladys P. Caulfield
82, was born the youngest of six children on a farm in Jamestown, North Dakota. Gladys or "Babe" as she was referred to by her siblings, possessed many talents and even hosted her own radio show, "Sing-a-long with Gladys Lee", at just 19 years of age. Gladys was the Jamestown Dairy Princess, and her high school prom queen before taking a job at the local bank. She met her future husband, Tom, when he came into the bank to cash war bonds to purchase a car. Tom and Gladys were married in 1950 and raised 6 children, eventually moving to Indianapolis in 1966.
She was an active member of St. Pius X Catholic parish and enjoyed singing in three Indianapolis church choirs. She was a certified decorative artist (CDA) and had one of her ornaments selected to hang on the White House Christmas tree in 2004. She took pride in everything she did and was a pillar of strength and inspiration to friends and family and will be missed by all. We love you forever Mom -- may you rest in peace with The Lord.
She is survived by her husband, Thomas Caulfield; son, Michael Caulfield (Maureen) and daughters, Susan Caulfield, Sandy Caulfield, Noreen Kavanaugh (Tim), Mary Larson (Dan), Kathleen Beach; nine grandchildren and two great- grandchildren. Visitation will be at St. Pius X church on Friday, September 20th from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. followed by a funeral Mass.
