Dear Family of Gladys I. Mizer Our sincere condolences in the death of Gladys. She was a long time member of Winfield Homemakers and we met and became friends thru our monthly meetings. Also we were part of Homemakers Chorus that sang in many nursing homes and senior events in and around Tuscarawas County. Gladys and Betty (from Stonecreek, Ohio) sisters were well loved by all and fun-loving to be around. They loved their families and cherished their many grandchildren. Both served as 4-H Leaders along with other organizations they were part of. We will miss their presence in all of our lives but have many precious good old-fashioned memories of attending and growing as Homemakers and keeping up with our changing families and the many changes in life for each of us. May God bless the heritage that Gladys has left behind and help your families go on in life in positive ways from all she taught each of us. May her soul rest in peace. Mrs. Hilda and David Hayhurst of Gnadenhutten, Ohio.

My deepest sympathy to all of Gladys Mizer loved ones. Family was very important to Gladys as everyone knew working with her and her sister Betty at Starlight was a joy everyday. I drove bus right along with them and we had some great talks even after we retired. Gladys is now looking for Betty age making sure she is ok. They both can still bring a smile to my face. My prayers are with all of you take care of each other. Becky Welz Spring Texas Formerly Strasburg, OH

To the Mizer family: So sorry to hear of Gladys' passing. I worked with her at Buehlers when she worked in the deli, and would see her many times since when she came in shopping or out and about somewhere. She always had a smile and was happy to see you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless.
