Gladys Reddin

December 25, 1932 — May 15, 2016

Born to Eva Mae and Edward Niedecken. Gladys was the second of four children and recalled many happy memories of her childhood. Growing up, Gladys did well in school, enjoyed school related activities, and being with her friends and family. She graduated from Abilene High School in 1951 and shortly after went to a local business school for a bookkeeping and accounting.
Most of her adult life was spent in Abilene and Austin, Texas. For many years, she hand painted black and white photographs and was the bookkeeper at a photography studio with her husband in Abilene. Later, she moved to Austin where she was a bookkeeper at the same company through various mergers for 22 years. Upon her retirement in 2006, she moved to Colorado.
Gladys enjoyed life and while it was not always easy, her faith in God was her compass and her rock. She loved her family and treasured the time she spent with them. She was a bit of a romantic, enjoyed books, good jokes and laughter, dancing, music (especially country, gospel, and waltzes), riding motorcycles, collecting dishes, glassware, and high heel shoes.
As the daughter of a seamstress, Gladys appreciated nice clothes and dressing up. While she could sew, she said she was never as good or enjoyed it like Mother. As a mechanic*s daughter, she learned her way around a car, preferred to drive V8*s and liked a car that could "get out of it*s own way" and could "make her smile".
Gladys is survived by her sister Eddy Free, brother-in-law Robert Day Sr., sons John David (Kim) and Ronald Lynn (Monica), four grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews.
