Gladys was born a century ago in Bruno, Saskatchewan, the eldest of 5 children (Donald, Vera, Delphine and Peter) to Albert and Rose Breit. In 1935 she met and fell in love with Eugene Roles. Gladys loved to dance, every Saturday night they attended the local barn dance, enjoying the music and the company of family and friends. They were married in 1942 in Bruno, Saskatchewan, and soon after they relocated to Sudbury, Ontario. Gladys was a loving mother who would do anything for her daughters, Sharon and Brenda. She enjoyed cooking and sewing for her family and she had a talent for needle craft. She continued doing needle craft in to her 90’s.
