What can I say about our Aunt Gladys - we were very lucky to have an Aunt who was so loving, caring and family oriented. She was proud of her family and always interested in what we were doing. She never failed to recognize birthdays, anniversaries and of course Christmas with a card and more often than not with a telephone call where family news was exchanged. My earliest memories take me back to the excitement I experienced each time my Aunt Gladys, Uncle Walter with John and Bruce arrived at Heathrow airport and we always drove to meet them bringing them home for a stay with us. In those days our cars and houses were small but we all fitted in somehow and had so much fun - happy times. I still remember being introduced to playing the card game called "Skit-Skat", played for pennies, competitive but with plenty of laughs! Eventually her UK family were able to make the journey to Canada for holidays - those holidays were made very special by the welcome we all received from Gladys and Walter, where her home became our home. Gladys always ensured we made the most of our visits which served to provide us all with so many beautiful memories which will last a lifetime. As the years passed and we all grew older and our families bigger, Gladys seemed to slip quite naturally into the role of our family matriarch where the phone calls not only came for special occasions but also to check all was well with everyone. We will miss those phone calls and the visits to see her, it was always easy to see how proud she was of all her family and how much she loved us - we loved her so much too and were blessed to have her as part of our family and in our lives. We will now cherish all the wonderful memories we are so fortunate to have.

A Little Dove,
said our goodbyes, as we now understood.
That way, we Live our Lives, it’s Thankful or just Good.
This life is only, but also, because of you.
Once As a Spoke.
Once in The Center.
The Grand side of the circle come due,
The Changing of the guard must Now enter.
Rest In Peace
One Love

Gladys, a mother, a wife, an aunt, a niece, a friend, a traveler, an explorer, a lover of life, strong, proper and very much loved. To me she was Mrs. M.

I have wonderful memories of your Mother. Mrs. M was an amazing lady, full of live. The last time I saw Gladys was just a couple of weeks before she was moved. We were chuckling as she re-told the story of how she met my mother pregnant with me and from that point on they had become very close friends. Travelling with us kids to see a different part of our country every summer and visiting England. We had a great many laughs, and some embarrassing times. Like when we had to move restaurants because our mothers could not get their second cup of coffee free.

And then the travelling of the world our mothers did together including Aunt Carol.

Your mother was a wonderful lady. She was kind, proper and had an amazing sense of humor. We all loved her so much. Her death has brought sorrow to a lot of lives who she had touched. She will be missed by everyone. Please know that we share your grief and sending you our sincere condolences to you and your family.

Liz you captured the essence of my mother so well and there are lot of good memories between our families. I also remember the second cup of coffee incident! Thanks for visiting her as often as you did at the Mountainview Residence - your and other peoples visits were so important to her. She lost a little of her current memory but she recalled the trips and events of the past as if they just occurred. I also enjoyed reminiscing with her as she could remember details I had long forgotten. thanks again for your kind words!

When Gladys and Walter moved to Kincardine, they quickly became good friends to my parents, Norine and Arthur Turland. I joined in for many afternoon visits with a hot cup of tea. Gladys was always genuinely interested in others' endeavours and well-being, and always proud to relate updates of her family. A lovely and generous person. My condolences.

Brenda thanks for your kind words. My parents loved living in Kincardine and while it is a beautiful town they most enjoyed the friends they made there especially your family. I often accompanied my parents to visit your parents and spent time at the kitchen table drinking tea or touring that wonderful garden your father kept. They were the best of friends! Thanks for keeping in contact with my mother after she moved to Georgetown.

Sending condolences to the family. My father Charles Coomber at Mountaiview was told and is quite saddened that a loving family friend has now passed, He so looked forward to seeing and talking to Gladys at the Terrace and over the years. Our family will cherish our fond memories of her. God bless Gladys and your family.

Susan thanks so much for your condolences. I always enjoyed speaking with your father when I bumped into him, usually at the meal table with all the ladies and just us two men, when I visited my mother. Please say hello to him for me. We've all known each other a long time!
