September 8, 1928 - January 3, 2012
Gladys Ella Erickson, age 83, passed away at her home in Newark, CA, Tuesday, January 3, 2012, in the early morning from complications of her recently diagnosed COPD lung disease. Her loving husband Vern was by her side.

Gladys was devoted to her family and friends and will be deeply missed by all. She had such a big caring heart and gave to so many charities. She loved to travel by auto and she and Vern have seen a great amount of the U.S. and Canada over their years of vacationing. And not to forget their time spent at their second home at Lake Almanor.
Memorial services were held at 11:00 am Monday, January 9, at Saint James Episcopal Church in Fremont CA. Gladys was laid to rest near her parents at Cedar Lawn Cemetery in Milpitas, CA.
