CAYA - Gladys F. "Paule"
Age 91. Surrounded by loving family, "Paule," peacefully fell asleep with the Lord on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Survived by her devoted best friend, partner and husband Henry "Hank" Caya. He called her "Little Bear." Married 68 years, she died just hours before his 89th birthday. Daughter of the late John and Aletha Hagan of Toronto. She was an educated woman with many talents, and up until her passing, enjoyed retelling stories, in clear detail, about family and friends. Even though she stood 5' 2" she was no pushover.
