Graduated from Stamford Collegiate High School in 1955 and started teaching in Niagara Falls in 1958 after graduating from Hamilton Teacher’s College in Hamilton, Ontario.

She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from Queens University in (1993). Gladys retired as an elementary teacher after 36 years. Gladys was very dedicated to children and adults with special needs in the communities she lived in, constantly providing respite and advocacy. She was deeply dedicated to her family and always made the effort to return to Niagara Falls and Denmark to visit her siblings and their families. She loved the outdoors and playing games with her family and friends. Her home was a place for children and grandchildren to explore and create, with her door always open to anyone. She really enjoyed travelling, music, baking, camping, local theater and crafts. She never missed the opportunity to experience and support her children and grandchildren in their activities.
