Gladys is also survived by her sisters Joanne, Rose and Doris and sister-in-law Jean Holmes. A special place in her heart was held for Joyce Holmes and Victoria Fries, along with many friends, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Gladys worked many years at Portage & District General Hospital. She always kept busy whether talking on the phone, walking down-town or enjoying reading the Free Press. She also loved to knit, sew and canning. Family dinners were a joy with so much good food. But her and Jack’s pride was their garden, never a weed to be found. Their trip to Nashville was a highlight in their lives.
To honour Gladys, a service will be held this summer with notice of details available closer to the date.
