Gladys was so small at the time of her premature birth that her survival was in doubt. After a difficult infancy, she thrived and went on to have a large family of her own that she dedicated her life to.

Her mother Germaine Decauwer Jonckheere Desmulier raised her daughter Gladys at the Decauwer family farm at 136 Hampstead St. Methuen, MA where Gladys learned to speak French and English fluently. She spent the happiest years of her life at "the farm", which she would often reminisced about.

Gladys' father, Gulien A. Jonckeere, returned to France when Gladys was about three or four years old. There he was drafted or joined the French military, as he was still a French citizen. He served in and survived WWI after which he chose not to return to the United States. He started a new life in France which you can find out more about on his findagrave memorial# 174148428.

Gladys (Jonckheere) Daigneault bore six children with her husband George Daigneault; Robert, Mildred, Alan, Charles, Paul, and Warren which she deeply loved and cared for. She raised her family to the best of her ability under very difficult circumstances before and after her husband left her in financial hardship. Gladys never remarried and devoted her life to her children.
