Gladys married William "Brian" Tilley who was a career service man in the U.S. Army.

Gladys and Brian had a beautiful home on Harper Rd. near the turnpike exit, which was torn down after their deaths and a hotel was built on that site. Gladys nieces always called the house a mansion. She used to let us wear her furs and carry her alligator purses. Gladys and Brian were foster parents to special needs children and loved everyone of them unconditionally.

Gladys had one son from a previous relationship.

Gladys was interested in the Walker Family genealogy.
