Gladys
Salazar, Gladys, a 29 year resident of Los Angeles, CA passed away on Friday, October 3, 2008. She was born in Belize on September 23, 1920 and was 88 years old when she passed. Growing up in Guatemala, she loved educating others and for over 10 years taught English at many of the Community Colleges. Gladys enjoyed being around people; this was shown as she worked at the Guatemala International Airport in the Duty Free Store. When meeting new people she would always engage in a warm and friendly conversation and if given the opportunity, share God's word. Gladys loved spending time with all of her family, going to the beach and always going to church. Her activities were not limited; she enjoyed dancing, singing and cooking for the family. When she had a moment to herself, she may be found listening to Freddy Fender or Gregg Morris. She will truly be missed. She is survived by her 7 children, Thelma, Mauricio, Gilberto, Cesar, Sonia, William and Gladys, 1 sister, Beatrice, 17 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husbands, Adolfo Estrada and Gilberto Salazar. A gathering of family & friends will be held on Tuesday, October 7, 2008 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM with the Vigil Service beginning at 7:00 PM at McCormick Mortuary, 635 S. Prairie Ave. in Inglewood, CA. The Funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday, October 8, 2008 at 10:00 AM at St John Chrysostom Catholic Church, 546 E. Florence Ave., Inglewood, CA 90301. Interment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, CA.

  1. Lamentamos mucho el fallecimiento de la seora madre de Danny Gabb, y externamos nuestras ms sinceras condolencias.

  2. We are truly sorry for your lost. You are all in our prayers. Gladys was a wonderful sister in law and aunt. We will miss her a lot. May God give you strenght in a time like this.

  3. Our little family is getting smaller little by little. I am hopeful that the ceremonies are what Aunt Gladys would have liked. I am sure she is in a better place now, and she is proud of her children. I’m sorry, but I will not be able to attend the funeral due to car problems. Promise that we will get together sometime soon. Love, Lynne

  4. I will miss Aunt Gladys tremendously! She made an impact on all our lives by showing us that life is meant to be lived to the fullest and it should always be done with love and kindness. This is the lesson she has thought me and I will always love her for it. I will miss you and love you always. Joe
