Gladys was our neighbor and friend. She was a warm, sincere, sweet lady who will forever be a part of the fond memories of our years in Coleridge. We will miss the never ending smile she graced us with every time we visited her. It is a comfort to know that Gladys, her husband Bud and sons are now having a grand reunion.

Gladys was our neighbor growing up as a child in Coleridge. I remember going over to her house many times either in the summer, the weekends, or after school. She always took interest in our lives, and her and Bud's door was always open to us. She and her husband were very special and influential people to us as children.
