Gladys was a member of the First Zion Baptist Church, Middletown. Gladys was an active member of her church serving as one of the Mothers, Trustee and a former member of the hospitality committee. She was always willing to help someone in need. In her spare time she loved reading, watching Judge Judy and other reality shows and listening to music.
