Heaven became a little sweeter on April 7, 2019, as Gladys M. Greenwood, formerly of Corsica, and recently of Brookville, passed from this side into the presence of God. She was 100 years of age.

She loved to cook, bake, crochet, knit and quilt. She also had a great sense of humor. She was a former member of Pisgah Presbyterian Church in Corsica, and then the Brookville Presbyterian Church.
