Gladys loved her family and had a very large love for life. She enjoyed all the work she done throughout her life where before becoming sick she was a mail carrier and then a baby sitter. If Gladys wasn’t working out of the home she could be found doing some of her favorite past times quilting, knitting, crocheting, gardening or cooking and if you couldn’t find her here you were sure to find her at her sister Ada’s where there was no TV but you could find them sitting making memories or reminiscing listening to nothing but the radio. If she could say one thing to each of you today it would be not to weep for her that she’s in no more pain and she’s walking streets of gold where not only did Jesus welcome her in but Wilbur now has her in his arms to forever hold. The last thing she would want you to know is that when it’s your time to go do whatever it takes to make Heaven your forever home. This isn’t a goodbye from her but a don’t you cry for I’ll be looking down on you from my mansion in the sky…
