Gladys Crawford

May 20, 1921-May 16, 2014

DUNCAN — Gladys Crawford, 92, went to be with the Lord on Friday, May 16, 2014. She will be buried in Duncan next to her mother, father, brother, and two sisters. Arrangements are under the direction of Elliott-Hamil Funeral Home, 542 Hickory St., Abilene.

Gladys, (Nana), raised her family in Duncan and enjoyed volunteer work, fishing, spending time with her church family, and especially loved baking. Her special time was with her wonderful grandchildren.

When her husband was alive they traveled and enjoyed camping, fishing and meeting new friends. She had a spunky spirit, which she managed to pass on to her beloved family. She will be forever missed and forever celebrated.

Donations in her memory may be made to Aldersgate Methodist Church, Abilene, Texas.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
