Gladys sounded like she was a wonderful women that left alot of great memories for her loved ones. There are alot of pictures on her memorial that express her true beauty and grace. My hearts and prayers go out to everyone in the family. Sheri
Hello friends and family. I am sorry I couldn't make it out to the West Coast to be with you all. It would have been nice to see you all again and to say goodbye to Grandma. I am happy for Grandma. She lived a long and happy life. For this we should all be thankful. Remember, death is only sad for those left behind. Grandma is in heaven now and is starting a brand new adventure. So grieve for our loss but not for her. She is just fine. Love Mark

What an absolutely lovely remembrance of Gladys. I wish I had known her, but to know Marjorie speaks volumes of Gladys. My love and thoughts and prayers are with you all, Carolyn Self
Dearest Mother, please know that an awesome memorial service was held in your honor with wonderful comments full of love and respect from your relatives and friends. We had toe-tapping hymns and an inspiring message from Dr. John Nastari. Marjorie

We remember Gladys for her clever and quick wit which always made us smile! She was always a welcomed guest in our home and we are sincerely saddened with her passing. Our Love To You Marge, David and Phyllis
She was good at telling me all about California and the things she did most of her life. I'am a hair dresser in Redmond Ore and had a good time fixing her hair. She was fun to know and a good person. Susan Endicott
What lovely rememberances you have gathered about such an accomplished and extraordinary person. Her life was full and rich and we know she will be missed. As a child I remember wanting to play with her Persian cat Muffy. I even named one of my cats Muffy! My love, Diane Deems
This was absolutly beautiful, thank you for sharing it with me I will pass it along to the caregivers at Aspen Ridge, who so dearly loved Gladys also. Peace to you all Adele
I worked at Aspen Ridge as a caregiver with Gladys for almost a year. She was a beautiful person and I will miss her and think of her always. Sky Stapel
Well, Gladys. The comments on your beautiful page are reflective of many more we have had. We thank you for a wonderful relationship. That relationship stretches back to 1958 when I happened by your lovely home in Atwater to date your daughter Marjorie. There, you and Joe taught us Bridge, Hearts, Pinnocle and countless other fun things, (including trying your best to teach me to dance). Now that the last card on earth has been played, I know things must be lively in Heaven today. For you and Joe have joined back together and are leading the way in gliding through a waltz, or stepping to a lively polka, as "The Saints Come Marching In". Until we meet again. Spike (son-in-law)
What a beautiful web site! What a wonderful tribute to Gladys! She certainly lived a full and interesting life and her values are reflected in the lives of her children and grandchildren. I am sure that she is much missed by them and by her many friends!

One of Gladys's wishes was for her ashes to be spread at Yosemite National Park where her and her family spent many vacations. Gladys had some years past spread Joe's (her husband) ashes over Yosemite in a very spectacular fashion. On April 30, 2004 Lydia carried her Mothers ashes up to Yosemite Point. With some special help from Brent she was given a ride out into the air high above the valley. Her soul and spirit was set free to start a new journey. She was sent off with words of hope that she would be united with Joe once again. Flowers followed her to brighten her way. We both felt she was on her way to new and better days. I did not know you for long but I felt a bond with you. Through Lydia and other family members I feel like I knew you for much longer. I am greatful for the time we spent together. May you have a clear path and smile and laugh in your new adventures. Love to you, Brent

i came upon this site via a google image search "20 years old". it was comforting to see your compassion, caring and love for Gladys. we live in a time when someone i never knew could still reach out, through you, and touch lives. a good reminder for us all of how powerful love is in this world.
