Gladys grew up in Kentucky and graduated from Wolfe County High School in Campton, Kentucky. Upon her graduation, her family moved to Middletown where she spent most of her life. After being a factory worker for thirty plus years, she retired from Schneider Electric. While still working, she studied for and received her beautician's license and operated her own beauty salon in Middletown. Because of her love for crafts, she later converted her salon into a craft shop. She was a member of the Women of the Moose 183. Upon retirement, she moved to Gainesville, Florida, where she obtained her CNA license and worked as a healthcare worker for individuals and nursing homes. She attended Trinity Baptist Church of Lake Butler, Florida, where her son-in-law Kirk pastored; and she received Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. After living

fourteen years in Florida, she returned to Middletown, Ohio. Gladys followed the Lord in believer's baptism and became a member of Grace Baptist Church where Max Fernandez is

Pastor. Gladys was known for her excellent work ethic, her kindness and love to others, and her love for candy. She loved her church family at Grace Baptist, and they in turn showered her with love and affection and her favorite sweets. Please join us as we celebrate her homegoing. Visitation will be
