|Death: ||Apr. 29, 1971|
Daughter of Agness (Vivian) Orviss Riddle.
Gladys married Lionel Hampton on November 11, 1936 and served as Lionel's business manager. Later in life she was involved in the construction of a housing project in her name, which is known as the Gladys Hampton Houses, in New York City, NY.
It was Lionel's wishes for his wife's ashes to be placed next to his grave. However, legal problems exist and Gladys' ashes will remain at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery. There is a centoph for Gladys at Woodlawn Cemetery, New York, where Lionel is buried.
