Gladys was an amazing daughter and best mom her children could have asked for. Everything she did was for her children. She was a hard working woman, single mom and amazing daughter. She helped anyone who needed her. Her family will remember her Saturday mornings, putting on her shortest shorts and doing her make up just to clean around the house. They will remember a woman who was always happy and smiling with a care free loving spirit. Gladys was a best friend, guide, role model and hero to many. Lastly, Gladys was a warrior and fought until her final breath. She is so loved and will be eternally missed.

    Un alma hermosa, llena de amor y de fe ha ascendido al cielo, lejos del mundo pero más cerca de Dios, dejando atrás soledad y tristeza. Vuela alto, estarás siempre en nuestros corazones.
