HORN Gladys C. Horn passed away peacefully at Parkvale Lodge on Saturday, November 5 at the age of 95. Gladys was born in Brandon, Manitoba on July 20, 1910 and spent most of her early life in Big Valley, AB where her father was an engineer with CN Rail.

In their retirement together they spent 20 wonderful years in Mesa, Arizona which became a highlight of their lives. Gladys is survived by daughter Gail Krause (Jim) of Red Deer, son Dan (Linda) of Okanagan Falls, B.C. Gladys was very proud of all her 5 grandchildren, Tim Brigley (Kelly) of Toronto, Lori St. John (Jeff) of Calgary, Carmen Dixon of Redwater, Travis Horn of Ft. McMurray, Stephanie Horn of Red Deer.
