Gladys will be remembered by her sister Chrissie of Scotland , as well as nieces and nephews Norman, Alan, Ian, Lindsay, Wendy, David, Anne and John.
Friends and relatives will remember Gladys’ positive outlook on life, her generosity and kindness, and her gift with children. Her philosophy was to enjoy the simple things in life: watching the cardinals and hummingbirds out the kitchen window, keeping up with news of the royal family and she was a keen supporter of figure skating.
Gladys had a special place in her heart for her children and grandchildren. Each of them knew that she was their biggest fan. Gladys was happiest when she was with the love of her life Ian.
“‘Tis a gift to be simple, ‘‘tis a gift to be free
‘It’s a gift to come down to where I ought to be”
