Eagle Bridge-Gladys E. Hendricks, 90, cherished wife of Robert D. Hendricks for 70 years, passed away peacefully at Southern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington on Monday May 20, 2019 with her family by her side. Gladys was born June 19, 1928 in Bronx, NY to William Ullrich and his wife Anna (Freudenmacher) Ullrich. She attended public schools in the Bronx and worked a variety of jobs as a young teen. As fate would have it, she met a young sailor in New York's Times Square in 1946 and they wed on August 7, 1948. They had two children, Lois Casey (Richard) of Hendersonville, NC and Glenn Hendricks (Patricia) of Eagle Bridge, NY. Four grandchildren, Christina Sesera, Kerry Denue, Lindsey McHale(Michael) and Emilyann Hendricks. Six great grandchildren would follow, Michael, Ashley, Katherine and Timothy Sesera, Carly Denue and Kateri Murphy. Gladys was predeceased by her siblings, Florence Zachariasen, William Ullrich, Dorothy Stauder and Mildred McDonnell. She had many nieces, nephews and cousins whom she was very fond of.
Gladys and Bob raised Labrador Retrievers and German Shorthaired Pointers for show and sport for over 20 years. In 1997 they left Long Island and moved to their new home on Turnpike Rd, Eagle Bridge. They loved their country life, taking great pleasure in growing flowers and vegetables and enjoying cool evenings sitting together on the front porch. Mom would often inquire if anyone "happened to be driving by" the Donut Wagon on a Sunday morning. She preferred staying close to home, enjoying the simple things life had to offer.
A calling hour will be from 11 am to 12 pm on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at the Ackley, Ross & Gariepy Funeral Home, 73 West Main Street, Cambridge. A service will begin at 12 pm with Jeffrey Peck officiating. Interment will be at the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery, Schuylerville.
