She was a devoted member of St. Aloysius Catholic and strong in her Catholic faith. She was active in the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus and the Alter and Rosary Society at the parish. Gladys always had a constant smile, spoke positively of everyone and always said “thank you.” She loved entertaining family and friends and traveling at a moment’s notice to Las Vegas, South Florida, and even Italy on her 80th birthday.
