Born and raised in Charleston, West Virginia she later made her home in Savannah, Georgia with her six children. Later, adopting 3 more children and lovingly caring for any other children struggling, Gladys was a mother to all in need.

Tracy DuBois), Stephen Elmore, Daniel Elmore, Michelle Elmore, Sylvia Lashley, and Eric Lashley.

Gladys is preceded in death by her daughter Rosetta Summerford, sister, Jean Rice, sister, Irene Fragale, brother, Gary Johnston, brother, Paul Johnston, and brother, Delmas Johnston.
We will all forever remember Gladys for her big heart, infectious laugh and family picnics- truly a gentle soul.
