Gladys was the daughter of Claude and Edna Gardner. She was a seamstress most of her life at Wolfe Manufacturing Co. She enjoyed sewing, crossword puzzles and her grandchildren. She worked hard all of her life to provide unselfishly for her family. Her kind, generous spirit was her greatest strength. She was a wonderful, devoted "Nanny" to many people.
Preceding Gladys in death were her parents; sisters; two daughters; and her husband, Dick Beane.
