  1. I have many fond memories of my “Auntie Gladys” from my childhood. She had a warm and welcoming, easy-going nature. She has not had the easiest life with some significant health problems over the years, but always made the best of her situation. She is at peace now but will be deeply missed by all who were lucky enough to have known her. My condolences to her family and the friends who were closest to her.

    Jackie Rokosh, Brian Deane and children

  2. Jack and family:
    — so sorry for your loss.
    I am a former member of St. Cecilia’s Parish. I remember Gladys fondly as a very special lady, always friendly, always smiling, willingly working in the kitchen, preparing funeral / parish luncheons. I know her presence will be deeply missed.

    Our deepest sympathy on your great loss. Gladys was my cousin and farm neighbor as kids from the colony area. I was also her bridesmaid at their wedding. Thinking of all of you at this time.
