  1. Gladys was such a sweet lady, I am sorry to hear of her passing, but what a wonderful long life she lead. I know she was very active until her recent illness. She’s with Elmer now. Rest in Peace.

  2. Gladys was a sweet gentle lady whom I had the pleasure of meeting in the 80s on Batavia ave. RIP Gladys. Elmer and her will be reunited in Heaven.

  3. We were neighbors of Elmer and Gladys for many years on the River Road in Fulton. We were friends and always went to visit when we whet back home. They loved our kids and always were so helpful. Two wonderful and kind people that left an impression on anyone they met. They made life better in many ways….

  4. I am saddened to learn of the death of Gladys. We lived across the River road from Elmer and Gladys during the 1960s and they would always welcome us at their door and we would run and romp with their dog. The best part, as kids, was that Elmer would share the chocolates, the pounds and pounds of them, that he would bring home from Nestles. I have often wondered how this lovely couple have faired over the years. I am happy to have had this couple in my life, for even the briefest of moments. My condolences to Gladys’ family and friends.

  5. Maryanne, my sincere condolences on the loss of Gladys. I am away at this time and will not be able to attend services for her. She was a wonderful lady and a very respected resident at Springside. Please know I am thinking of you and your family.
