I am very sad to hear of the passing Gladys. I will always remember her as a very caring person. She always made me feel welcome into her home. I know she will be missed by her family and I pray that she is welcomed into the Kingdom of God and be united with family again.
Peace and love be with you all.
David McEachern.

My Aunt Gladys was one of the most wonderful person you could have ever known, I will all ways remember Each year putting our hands on a piece of paper and tracing our hands and at Christmas time having a new pair of mittens knitted and she would alway make M &M cookies and earthquake cookies and one of my favorite hot cross buns and she would mail it to us up to Alaska. And all the time she would take me and my brothers to the beach, she was truly a wonderful woman, and she will be missed.

Miss Usher was my 6th grade Social Studies teacher, at the John Post Reynolds School (1965-66). Her stories about her many travels added much inerest to the countries we were studying. Her knowledge and dedication to the teaching profession inspired me onto a Masters in History/Social Science/Geography.

Gladys was a great neighbor, a wonderful godmother and a fabulous 6th grade teacher and I'm lucky to have had them all.
