GLADYS SMITH

August 14, 1917 – April 22, 2009


Passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox. Gladys was predeceased by her parents; Harry and Elizabeth Stanford, her brother Henry and her sister Katherine from Ontario and her loving husband Cecil of 46 years. Gladys will forever remain in the hearts of her daughter Margaret MacCulloch and her husband Bill from Comox, her daughter Helen Valentine and her husband Oz from Qualicum Beach, her 4 grandchildren Ed (Marilu), Fred, Christopher (Susan) and Jeffrey (Patricia), her great granddaughter Rachael, her nieces Susanne & Ruth and all of her many good friends. Gladys was a gracious woman of honour, integrity and humour, kind and caring and loved simple pleasures, content to spend her earlier days quilting, gardening and having company for tea. Her family was her biggest pride and joy and we shall all miss her greatly. Many thanks to all the doctors, In Home Care nurses, hospice and the ever efficient Paramedics. Our family is eternally grateful for their dedicated services. A Memorial Service was held at Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation & Reception Centre on Monday, April 27, 2009.
