Sorry to here about Aunt Gladys. I will always fondly remember the holidays we spent in West Virginia with all of our families. She was a special lady and will be missed. Wish I could be there to see everyone and say good bye. But my love thoughts and prayers are with you all. Karen

I loved spending time with aunt Gladys- Baking cupcakes, shopping, a visit to Virginia Beach, sightseeing around Virginia and D.C. She always had a smile and tried to be positive. When we were stationed at quantico, Virginia she invited us to her house for thanksgiving so we would be with family. It was wonderful that she came to Michigan with us in 2011 to celebrate mom and dad's 50th anniversary. I think that was her last visit to Michigan and it was wonderful seeing the four sisters all together talking and laughing.
Aunt Gladys we will miss you. We are so sorry we can't be at the service tomorrow. Sending hugs and sincere sympathy to the entire family.
Janice and Chuck Donnell, Betty Clelland
