Glayds was my Sunday school teacher for years. When I grown and had children of my own she always met you with a smile and a hug. She will be missed but we will see her again! Soar with the angels and sing in the choir.

We were so sorry to learn of Gladys' passing. She and Don were very wonderful. They raised a beautiful family together. Gladys was a most caring and dear friend. We will miss her. We send our love and prayers to Don and all the family.

Tears fill my eyes as I read the life story of our precious friend Glayds Tippitt passing. She was a very special friend with a huge smile on her face. Glayds and Don made NAZARENE ACRES our home away from home for our family over the many Summers we spent there. I well remember her BOSTON CREAM PIE that she always made for Dennis Wright and me when we worked in snack shack at kids camps. One year my church didn't offer us any expense to stay for camp meeting and Gladys heard of it and quickly found us a room in cooks building which we used for many years following. Chris and I had a Sunday off and decided to stop by and visit with our dear friends Don and Galdys. Precious memories fill our hearts of her kindness, love and service to our great camp ground. I have a funeral in Olivet Church of our oldest member same time as Gladys service so will miss being there but send our love and prayers to Don and all the family. Heaven is much richer today because of Gladys passing to her heavenly home.

I am so sorry to learn of Gladys' passing. She was a wonderful, giving person. My husband Dennis and I shared so many wonderful times with Gladys and Don. One thing I will never forget is how she took me under her wing when my family had moved to Taylorville in 1971. I was 16 years old and heartbroken to have left my friends in E. St. Louis. I met Gladys at the Taylorville Nazarene Church. She took me aside one morning and asked if I'd like to go to lunch with her. She picked me up and we went to get lunch and visited the whole afternoon. She made me feel very special. Gladys would never know just how much that meant to me! My condolences to Don and all the family on the loss of this precious gem.
