Known Gladys since she dated her beloved husband, Simon. She always had a smile and it showed just how much she loved her family. Adoring mother and grandma. Gladys was a beautiful lady. She loved the Lord and her church. Gladys was a lady in all respects. She'd has left a legacie that will always be remembered. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to her family.
