LYNN, Gladys E.
LYNN - Gladys E. Passed peacefully on August 27, 2017 in Marietta, Georgia with her family by her side. Born on October 14, 1922 in Philadelphia, PA to the late William and Clara Reid. Gladys was preceded in death by her brothers and sister, Billy, Etta, Leonard and Thomas Reid. She lived most of her life in Buffalo, NY where she married the late Thomas V. Lynn, Sr. and had five beautiful children, Thomas V. Lynn, Jr., Etta (Jimmie) Nunn, Leonard (Jacqueline) Lynn, Janette Kenner, and Babette Lynn. She was also a loving grandmother to five grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandson and a host of nieces and nephews. Gladys was a fun loving, sassy, quick-witted gal and a formidable opponent to those who naively dared to challenge her wit and verbal tenacity. Gladys enjoyed life and loved to present herself as the beautiful and sophisticated woman she was. Gladys worked in food service for many years, but her talents were many, including sewing, a skill she truly loved. She was also quite adept in mixing a mean cocktail! She was loved by all that knew her and cherished by her family and close circle of friends. While she will be truly missed, her beautiful smile, quick and humorous wit and unbridled love for her family will forever live in the hearts of all who were fortunate to have known this magnificent woman. Donations are being made to Juvenile Diabetes Foundation in the name of Gladys Lynn.
