Gladdy enjoyed many pursuits, but her passion was sewing. At a young age she studied clothing construction and the art of pattern drafting. Well into her 80's she continued to design clothing and perform remarkable alterations.
Most notable was Gladdy's lovingness and lovability. She touched many hearts and was blessed in return by the love of many.
Gladdy is preceded in death by her husband Ralph, son Jerry, and sister Grace. She is survived by her daughter Mary.
A private memorial was held for Gladdy at the Vintage Retirement Community in Burbank. Graveside services will be held privately on Dec. 26 at Forest Lawn. Donations may be made to: Assisted Home Hospice, 8550 Balboa Blvd. Suite 282, Northridge, CA 91325.
