Obituary for Gladys Gertrude Wilson
Angels came to escort our precious mother home to Jesus. Gladys G. Wilson was born in Oakland, Calif., on March 29, 1925, but when her family settled in the Vacaville area she found her true home and lived out her life in Vacaville except for a few years when she joined her daughter and family in Milwaukee, Wis. She worked for Straumans Department Store and donated her time to St. Mary’s Food Locker and was an auxiliary member of the Legion of Mary and the Women’s Club at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Preceded in death by the love of her life, James B. Wilson; her mother, Fern Harbit Galos; father, Roy Harbit; stepfather, Max Galos; brothers, Roy and Steve Harbit; and sister, Sadie Galos. She was the loving mother of Blaine (Judith) Wilson of Ogden, Utah, Norman (Sandy) Wilson of Benicia, Calif., Kathleen Wilson of Milwaukee, Wis., and Edith (Robert) Brichman of Palm Springs, Calif. She was the fondest sister of Grace Leach and Max Galos. She is also survived by many adoring family and friends. Her greatest joy in life was her family. She had nine grandchildren and 23 great- grandchildren. She was the grandmother who sat down on the floor to play with her grandchildren or stomp in the mud to make mud pies. She loved the Lord, reading, music, gardening and visiting with family and friends. She was kind, gentle and always had a smile on her face. She was always happy to see the many family and friends she made throughout her life.
