Bio: Gladys Mary Ruby Webb
Gladys attended St. Martin to the 8th grade. She briefly attended Ocean Springs High School, 9th & starting 10th but her daddy (Daniel) said that was enough school and she was needed at home, (source her dairy) in reading it, she liked to party, dance and drink wine.
Gladys's original name was Gladys Ruby Webb. When they took her to be baptized the priest would not do it. He said she had to have a saint's name. Mary was added to her name. She went by Gladys Mary, but her baptismal certificate says Gladys Mary Ruby Webb. All her friends called her Kate. How this was derived is unknown.
Gladys helped Laura (her Mother) with washing other peoples clothes and cleaning their houses. She played basketball in school as well as softball. She was the center of her school's team She lived her whole life in one location: Seaman/Tucker Road, St. Martin, MS. She worked at various seafood factory's in Biloxi (earned 12 cents one day, source her dairy), and the Woolen mill in Pascagoula until the bridge burned down. She liked to dance and loved parties.
