They cared for her the past two weeks with the assistance of Hospice Care of South Carolina.

She is the ninth of ten children born April 5, 1926 to the late Henry and Lillie Pearson of Greenville.

Gladys loved working in her yard tending the flowers, mowing the lawn, feeding the birds and many other creatures that would show up from time to time.

She loved her friends that would call, come by and just to "share".

Ron Nichols and wife Linda of Valdosta, GA; four grandsons, Dr. Brian Nichols and wife, Julie of Kennesaw, GA, Kevin Nichols of Macon, GA, Ronnie Nichols of Jacksonville, FL and Rev.
