Gladine was a loving, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who enjoyed bragging on her family. Inquisitive by nature, she would talk with whoever would listen. Her favorite pastimes were spent with her family eating out or with her pet cats which she adored. She left a legacy of love and admiration in the hearts of all that knew her.
