Gladys was the last living grand daughter of William and Anna Weber, my mothers first cousin, and a dear, loving soul. I remember,as a teenager, with my Mom and Dad, playing Canasta at Carl and Gladys's home . For several years, when she worked at the Court House, Gladys found and made copies from the Monroe County archives helping trace the Weber family history. She shared them with me in my attempt at a family tree. Gladys leaves a beautiful legacy. Goodbye, sweet, gentle lady. My condolences to the Bequette family .
