Gladys knew the importance of connecting with people who could tell you the "history" and she knew how important it was to piece the puzzle together. God Bless her for all the endless hours she selflessly gave to the Springfield Township Historical Society. She was a great role model for anyone that appreciated the value of history and roots. She will be missed more than words can say. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family. Clare and Steve Filko

Peace be with the family. Loving memories and messages that were never voiced to Gladys: Although we lived so close, we did not visit as often as we should. You always had a smile with good wishes when we met by chance anywhere. Your laugh and kindness were always a welcome bright spot to any day and will be sorely missed. Cousin Wilbur
