It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved mother and nana, Gladys Otto (Delbrouck) on May 15, 2022 at Saanich Peninsula Hospital. Gladys passed away peacefully onto her next journey. She leaves behind her loving brother, Bill (Ann) Greenhalgh, her children, Bobbie, Berniece, Brian (Neila), and many family members and friends all close to her heart.
Gladys was born June 9, 1922 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. She moved to the Peninsula with her family at the age of 12, where she stayed for the rest of her life.
Gladys will be remembered for her strong sense of family, her spunk in life, the love of a laugh, a good card game, a dance, and her witty responses. She made many contributions to the community, through volunteering, fundraising and starting various organizations.
It is with memories of almost 100 years of life that Gladys leaves us, she lived them well and to her fullest. She will be remembered and missed dearly.
The family wishes to thank the Staff at Saanich Peninsula Hospital and the Peninsula Health Unit Home Care Nursing team for their excellent and compassionate care.
