I remember her from Rowe Pentecostal Church. A devoted member. Always a smile. Always there when the doors were open.

What a true Southern lady, Miss Gladys always was---sweet, kind, gentle and very loving. She loved her late husband, Millard, her children and grands and great grands, and she loved being up in Smyth County at Saddlebrook. She always looked forward to our annual meeting picnic, and was loved and respected by all. Thoughts and prayers will be with the family during these next difficult days and beyond. Go rest high upon that mountain! - Love, The Board of Directors and Saddlebrook Farms Property owners Association Inc.
