     Gladys was a former member of the Conrad Weiser Chapter 449 Order of the Eastern Star, Womelsdorf.  She enjoyed being in her home and caring for her family.  She enjoyed travel, cooking, baking and going out to eat with her family and friends.

 

     Gladys spent decades in her home caring for children of working parents.  The children, their families and Gladys formed strong bonds and stayed in touch.  As the years passed and “her kids” grew they would invite Gladys to special events such as weddings, graduations, parties, and birthdays.  Each one had a very special place in her heart and she had a special place in theirs too.
