In 1973 George and Gladys made their final destination in Salmon Arm, B.C. Gladys worked serving in several local restaurants throughout her years, she was known for her hard work ethic and charming personality. She spent her retirement years in Sunnybrae with George working many hours in the beautiful yard and flower gardens surrounding their home on Shuswap Lake. Gladys loved quadding, hunting, ski-dooing, mushroom picking, horseback riding, Gymkhana and of course fishing especially for salmon on the Skeena and trout in Greeny Lake. One of Gladys’ biggest loves in life was music and dancing, her feet were never still. Her passion took her to actively participate and volunteer for the community. She performed and taught line dancing, took part in several 100 Guitar celebrations, even dressing up for the part.
Gladys will always be remembered for the generous warmth in her heart that brought laughter and love to everyone she knew and met. She will be dearly missed by all her friends, family and loved ones.
Thank you to Dr. Laura Hepburn, Dr. Main, Nurse Janine, Community Care support and Hospice for their compassionate care of our beloved Gladys.
