Many of which were inspired by the woods around the family camp. She enjoyed sitting on the camp porch in a rocking chair, fishing, and boating. She was skilled in sewing, knitting, and crocheting. She enjoyed golf, bus trips, and square dancing. It was her love for the Calvary United Methodist Church that brought her much joy in her later years. When Gladys married Dick she gained a whole new family along with a church full of friends with warm hearts.
