Born on Dec. 16, 1926 in Bel Al­ton, MD, to the late Thomas A. Gar­ner and the late Rose­belle A. In­scoe Gar­ner. Gla­dys is one of 18 chil­dren and is pre­ceded in death by her broth­ers: Bernard, Rus­sell, Wil­son, Thomas Jr., Ray­mond and Ge­orge; sis­ters: Naomi, Ge­or­getta, Ruth, Mar­ian, Lillian and Bar­bara.

Gla­dys is sur vived and beloved mother to Jac­que­line Hol­son (Joe Jr.), Jean Carol Downey, Patti Wind­sor (Bart), Beloved grand­mother to grand­chil­dren: Crys­tal McMullen (Rob), Staci Tagl­is­feri (Joseph), Me­gan Sans­bury, Pa­trick Downey, Matthew Downey (April), Jor­dan Wind­sor and Reed Wind­sor.

Gla­dys and her 17 sib­lings grew up on a farm in Bel Al­ton. She lived with her fam­ily in Rich Hill in 1916 for a few years and again in 1944 to 1954. Most his­to­ri­ans be­lieve the Rich Hill house was lived in by Colonel Sa­muel Cox, and that John Wilkes Booth hid in the at­tic af­ter shoot­ing Pres­i­dent Lin­coln.

Shortly af­ter grad­u­at­ing from the Sa­cred Heart High School, Gla­dys moved to Wash­ing­ton, D.C. where she worked for Blue Cross/Blue Shield for 30 years. She mar­ried the late James Louis Buck­ler and moved to Oxon Hill be­fore set­tling in La Plata seven years ago and rel­ished life at The Maples.

Gla­dys loved her daugh­ters, grand­chil­dren and fam­ily, en­joyed help­ing peo­ple, gar­den­ing and read­ing. Gla­dys was a de­vout Catholic, a very gen­er­ous per­son and was al­ways help­ing some­one. She will be greatly missed.
