YOUNG, Gladys...

On Friday, October 16, 2020, Gladys Marie Young (Wade), peacefully passed away a day after her 97th birthday, with family by her side.  She was born in 1923 in Ingersoll, ON to Joseph Vance Wade and Mary McIntyre Moir and had a long career at the Public General Hospital in Chatham, ON.  

Gladys was widowed to Charles Samuel Young in 1993.   She is survived by her son John (Roberta) Young and her daughter Patty Young.  Gladys was the proud grandmother to Shawn (Meaghan), Joey (Mandy), Katrina, Sam and Adriane (Rob) and a great grandmother to Marissa, Bridget, Emily, Chloe and Hayden.  Gladys sadly was predeceased by her brother Gordon Wade (Lila) and her sister Kathryn Baillie (late Bill), but survived by many much loved nieces, nephews and cousins.  

The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to ALL the staff at Revera Elmwood Place where Gladys has resided for the past 15 years.  Thank you for your dedication to your work and the residents, it did not go unnoticed.
