I was so sorry to hear of Glady's passing. She was my "other Mother" during my growing up years. Glady and my Mother, Marguerite White, were the best of friends when we lived in Woodland. She was even there for my "mother-daughter talk", of course I can't repeat here what advice they gave me. I will always remember her with the fondest of memories. My heart felt condolences go out to her family.

Gladys, Albin and Corey were good, welcoming neighbors when we bought our Meddybemps camp next to theirs in 1994. We have nice memories of them. Our heart goes out to Corey at this time of loss.

So very sorry to hear about Gladys - Didn't get to see her this summer because of the virus but have so many nice memories of when we were kids that I will treasure! My heart is with everyone at this sad time. Cousin Barbara

I am so sorry to hear of Gladys’ passing. A long time ago she was engaged to my Uncle Gordon McGlauflin who was killed at war. Gladys remained a dear friend with my Gram, Evelyn McGlauflin. Gladys was such a joy to be with, she was one of the kindest people I know. She loved her family and friends and will be sorely missed. God rest her soul.
