  1. Dear David, John, and family,
    Gladys will be fondly remembered as a bright light for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. What a sweet lady with a great sense of humor, and a broad smile. When we visited, we’d get to the end of the hallway, and Gladys’ rule was to turn and wave, and she’d blow kisses to us. We have suffered loss, but she has gone home to be with the Lord, and we will see her again. Our prayers are with you. 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18

  2. I was a student in Mrs. Valcore’s kindergarten class at Barnard school in the 1964/65 school year. I remember her as a kind and caring person. I will always remember the beautiful pine tree covered with Christmas lights in her front yard on Stone Road.

  3. I first met Gladys in Ladies’ Bible Study several years ago. She was a very sweet, wise lady who loved the Lord and was an inspiration to all of us. May she rest in peace.

  4. I met Gladys when David and John were students at Barnard School in Greece. We kept in touch over the many years. She had all the good qualities
    of sweet and caring lady. Whenever we would meet she was enthusiastic, interested, and very positive. Her two “kids” were a reflection of her

  5. John, David and family, Gladys was a wonderful lady who loved the Lord and her demeanor and smiles showed it! I was blessed to spend 10 years living in her upstairs apartment and we got to know each other quite well. I loved her laugh and our moments together. I was blessed to know her, and have many memories of times shared. A lovely, Godly woman who couldn’t wait to meet her Savior and Lord. Praying for peace and comfort for all of you in knowing she is now at peace and Home.

    • John, David and family,
      I just came across your mom’s obituary and was saddened to her of her passing. Glady was a “teacher’s teacher”. She was my sponsor teacher in 1970 and I learned how to teach from her. What a role model she was!
      Always smiling, always positive. The kids, the parents, the teachers…we all loved Glady. Always ready to help others, a living example of Christian love not only in her personal life but her professional life as well. She will be missed by many.
