Gladys was born near Rosthern, SK. She married Henry in 1940 and came to Manitoba where they lived in Rosenfeld, Dauphin, Winnipeg, Landmark and Morden.

In retirement she and Henry shared a love of birds, baseball, hockey and music. Following his death she lived in Morden and Winnipeg where she remained involved with her family and devoted much time to knitting for several charities and hospital services. Treasured gifts of butterflies and angels decorated her door and home and will go with her. Through increasing illness and suffering Gladys' wit and sense of mischief remained strong to the end.
