CliftonGladysOn Saturday, August 15, 2015 at Seven Oaks Hospital, Gladys Clifton aged 96 years of Winnipeg, MB formerly of Morden passed away.

Gladys is survived by her daughter, Carol (Mike) of Australia, two sons, Gary of Winnipeg, Wayne of Maple Ridge, BC as well as four grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, George Clifton in 1955, grandson, Michael and her parents, Ole and Millie Bjornson.

Gladys spent most of her working years in the Thornhill and Morden area and was employed as an LPN at the Morden Hospital for many years. When the hospital lacked funds to install an elevator, Gladys decided she would ride her bicycle from Calgary to Morden to raise funds for this project. This was back in 1969 before this type of fundraising was common. A plaque honoring her accomplishment can be seen in the elevator at the former Morden Hospital. Gladys was a resident at the Vista Park Lodge (PCH) in Winnipeg. She enjoyed her time there and was treated well by the caring staff.

As per Gladys’ wishes, cremation has taken place and she will be laid to rest with her husband, George at Hillside Cemetery in Morden.
