    Dear Jane and family –
    I am heartbroken at the passing of Gladys. We shared so many laughs and wonderful times together. We often said if my old blue car could have talked it would have had many tales to tell after listening to us as we drove to and from work together for so many years. Please know you are in my heart and in my prayers and Gladys will forever be in my heart. Sending you and your family a big hug – Irene Hayes

  • Roselyn Eckstadt Phare says:

    So sorry to hear this news. My sisters and I would have come to the funeral from Salmon Arm if we had known. The last time I saw Gladys was about two years ago at the Women’s Retreat in Ashton Creek and we had a great time getting reunited as cousins and taking about the Eckstadt Family Tree. Gladys was a wonderful Christian lady, touched many people in the church and at her work and had such a lovely smile. My sincere condolences to all of the family.

  • Larry, Natalie & Family Demenoff says:

    Dear Jane & family,
    We were saddened to hear that Gladys has passed. We will remember her strength, independence, and quick wit. Our deepest condolences.
