She was a homemaker and devoted wife, mother and grandmother.  Gladys was an excellent seamstress and enjoyed sewing for her family and others.  She was also an excellent cook and loved cooking for family reunions and holiday feasts; especially her yeast rolls and desserts.   Gladys enjoyed playing Skip-Bo and loved to sit on the back porch enjoying her flowers and watching the birds.  She was always willing to help with family, kids and church.
