Obituary for Gladys May Heinauer

They met at the FBI where dad was an agent and she was a secretary. They attended ex-agents social gatherings for many years. She loved her family, the beach, margaritas and being "Gigi" to her great-grandchildren.

No deeper feeling of loss can be had. God gained an angel for certain! With all that's going on right now, if I don't get the opportunity in person, I want you to know how beloved Aunt Glad was to my whole family. She was a great lady in every way. I will miss her.

Tom and Gladys became second parents to me during my college years with Lisa. They welcomed me into their joy-filled home and included me in family gatherings. We laughed and cried together, and I will remember beautiful Gladys always ready for a party- what fun they are having at their joyous reunion! Love to all of you
