Obituary

Gladys Smith passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Tuesday, 10 March 2020. Born 04 July 1926, in Foley, AL to Charles Lewis and Florence Younce Lewis. She moved to Pensacola in the 1930s, married Walter Frank Smith and had 9 children. She served her country by working as a Riveter at Pensacola Naval Air Station during World War II. She later became a sitter for the sick and elderly, a job that forced her to finally get a driver's license at the age of 52.
She was deeply religious. When her children were younger, she had them in church 3 times a week at Westside Baptist Church. She later joined Family Worship Center, led by Pastor Julian C. Walker, where she remained the rest of her life.

Devoted to her family, her front door was always open, letting her grandchildren and great grandchildren run inside whenever they were around. There was always a pot of spaghetti or chicken and dumplings waiting for anyone stopped by. She enjoyed taking trips to family hunting property in Milton and watching the deer on camera. She loved to crochet, especially a pineapple stitch and gave out small doilies to anyone who asked. She also hand sewed a blanket for every new child born into the family. Small gifts that we will all cherish in her memory.

She is preceded in death by her son, Kenneth Wayne Smith and daughter, Joyce Ann Thomas.

She is survived by her children Jeanne (Donnie) Burnham, Bob Thomas, Charles (Cheryl) Smith, David Smith, Bennie Smith, Janet (Carl) Brackins, Jon Smith, and Janice (Phillip) Partridge. She also leaves behind 18 grandchildren, 40 great grandchildren, 30 great great grandchildren, and numerous family friends that took to her and called her Grandma.

Funeral services will take place with Trahan Family Funeral Home-Milton Chapel on Saturday 14 March. Public viewing at 10:00 AM and Service at 11:00 AM. Burial will follow at 1:00 PM at Union Hill Cemetery. Pallbearers will be her great grandsons: Dillon Torres, Matthew Burnham, Peyton Doyle, Donald Burnham III, Auston White, and James Hill II.
