Gladys Ethel HARDEN

Sept. 18, 1919 – Dec. 3, 2011

Gladys passed away peacefully at Totem Lodge, St Mary’s Hospital in Sechelt. She was predeceased by her husband Tom in 1984 and by her two brothers, Thomas and James. She will be forever remembered by her daughter Gloria Nicol(Stan), Grand daughter Andrea and her three sons, Jamie, Cyril Jr., and Jean Luc. Gladys was born in London, England. In 1953, Gladys, Tom and Gloria moved to Canada and resided on the Chilliwack Army base for several years before moving to their own home on Velma Road in Sardis. After Tom passed away Gladys moved to Mission to live with Gloria and Stan. When independent living became impossible, Gladys resided at Pleasant View and then the Dr Stuart Pavilion at Mission Memorial Hospital. Due to the closure of the Dr Stuart Pavilion, she moved to the Totem Lodge in Sechelt this past summer to be close to Gloria and Stan upon their retirement. Gloria would like to thank the nurses and staff in each facility for their considerate and conscientious care over the past years. Gladys was very well-known in the Chilliwack community for her volunteer activities in animal welfare and at senior care facilities. She was proud to receive Citizen of the Year awards on several occasion in recognition of her community work. The immediate family will hold a private Celebration of Gladys’ life at a later date at the Legion Memorial Gardens, Vedder View Gardens Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to an animal welfare organization of your choice would be appreciated
