She spent many days going “down home” caring for her father and siblings. She was always very proud of her family and each one of them held a special place in her heart including her big dog Jake, who was a great companion. In early years she had many camping adventures with the family and eventually spent her summers at the cottage on Lochaber Lake. She enjoyed family gatherings of any kind with Christmas being her favorite. Saturday nights were spent playing cards with the Taylor’s and Sunday was a time for church, big dinners and drives for Ice Cream with Dick. She was a life-long member of Sharon St. John United Church of Stellarton. Her faith was very strong, and she truly appreciated her visits from the UCW and Rev. Karen Ross. Gladys believed do unto others as you would like them to do to you (Luke 6:31). Gladys' family would like to extend a special thank you to all the staff at Glen Haven Manor for the special care and attention they provided during her stay, and also to the incredible neighbours and extended members of her family who looked in and provided for her while she was at home.
