Gladys Pregmon Russin, 88, of Old Forge, entered into eternal life on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012.
She was the beloved wife of Jerry Y. Russin.
Gladys was born on May 14, 1924. She was a daughter of the late John Pregmon and Sophie Gambal.
She was a graduate of Old Forge High School and attended Keystone College. Mrs. Russin was employed until her retirement as the assistant to the chief executive of Elizabeth Arden Company.
