  1. You are the last of three great ladies. The memories are endless. You were so much fun and loved spending time with your sister “Dot”. From Conesus Lake, Old Forge, Florida, birthdays and holidays….great memories. I know mom’s been waiting to play scrabble with you. You will definitely be missed.

  2. To Cindie and to all who were graced by this beautiful lady. I loved this woman and will always cherish my memories of Mama Gladys, (Mrs. Buzz) and the fun times we shared hanging out together. Rest in peace “Mrs. Buzz”. Love, “Buzzer”

  3. This goes to all who knew my mom. Know that she loved you! To all that came to her calling hours, she knows how much you meant to her and how you much she meant to you. She was one in a million and I am very proud to call her Mom. She’s at peace now. She will definitely be missed by all who knew her. I love you ,Mom ❤️

  4. I worked at Fays/Eckerds/Rite Aid at Dewey/Latta in the Pharmacy for 34 years. Mrs. Yarus was one of my most favorite customers….and friend. We used to spend more time talking and laughing than me actually working. I loved her like family. I left work in 2013 and I always wished there was someway I could’ve gotten a hold of her. Please accept my heart felt condolences for your Moms passing. She is one person who will always live in my heart. Sincerely, Marilyn Kearns

  5. Aunt Gladys will be greatly missed. I hope she and Danny are exchanging jokes and having a good time. Cindy I wish you and your family well.
