Gladys graduated from St. Louis Catholic School and attended Draughons Business College. She was a charter member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary #70 and a lifelong parishioner of St Brigid’s Catholic Church.
Gladys was a wonderful, compassionate, and caring mother and grandmother to her family. She was a kind and overwhelmingly generous person who always put the needs of others ahead of her own. At her home at the Villa De San Antonio, she made many dear friends in her 10+ years of residency there. She was a lifelong San Antonio Spurs fan and would never miss a game (no matter what!). She enjoyed playing bingo and trying her luck at the slots at Kickapoo Casino in Eagle Pass, TX.
