BENJAMIN, Gladys Ethel (Coombe) January 14, 1922 - January 4, 2014 . Gladys passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Comox Valley Seniors Centre just 10 days shy of her 92nd birthday. She was predeceased by her much-loved parents and older sisters, Emma, Ona, Pat and Betty. She is already missed by her loving husband of 66 years, Glyn, and her four children Betty Tate (Max), Tom Benjamin (Janette), Barb Belcher (Dan) and Chris Churchley (John). Her 8 grandsons Steve (Erin), Dan (Roxy), James, Michael, Jeff, Brian (Lau), Ross (Leah), Scott and 5 great-grandchildren Braedyn, Evan, Molly, Isaac and Theo will very much miss their Grandma and Gigi. Gladys was a devoted wife, sister, mother and grandmother who put family first. She was a gentle soul who looked for the best in everyone. She and Glyn enjoyed a long and happy marriage that is an example for all of us. She has left us a legacy of love and memories that we will cherish always and forever. There will be a celebration of Gladys's life on January 11, 2014 at 1PM at the Crown Isle Golf Course Clubhouse. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to one of Gladys's favorite charities, the Salvation Army, your local Food Bank or the Alzheimer's Society of BC.
