Though making her home for several years in St. Cloud, FL, Gladys spent her summers and holidays in Verona where she enjoyed visiting with her children, her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all who lovingly refer to her as “GG”. Her greatest joys were playing Pinochle with her children and grandchildren, and shopping.

She will be laid to rest with husband Durward and son Roger at St. Peter’s Lutheran Cemetery in Churchville, NY. A memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family.
