Gladys Clara LOOWELL
It is with a heavy heart, much love, and beautiful memories that we announce the sudden passing of Gladys Loowell (nee Simon) on May 1, 2023, at the age of 84 surrounded by family.
Gladys was born on March 27, 1939, in Telfordville, Alberta to Edward and Edna Simon. Gladys was the second oldest of 9 children and grew up on a farm. After leaving the family farm at the age of 15, Gladys worked as a Nanny and a Ward-Aid at the University Hospital.
Gladys met her husband Bruce Loowell of 55 years in 1966 and they married in 1967. Together they had two children Mark (Laurie) Loowell and Marina (Lee Mulvahill) Loowell. Gladys has three grandchildren, Makaila, Ryen, and Larsen.
Once married with a family of her own, Gladys stayed home with Mark and Marina until they attended grade school and then worked in a senior’s lodge for 25 years until her retirement. Gladys took pride in caring for others whether it be her own family or others and making her house a home. She loved to cook and bake and her passion was enjoyed by many.
Gladys was predeceased by her mother; Edna (nee Siegel), her father; Edward Simon, her sister: Rosaline Betke, and her brother; Terry Simon.
She is survived by her loving husband of 55 years; Bruce Loowell; children: Mark (Laurie) and Marina (Lee Mulvahill); grandchildren: Makaila, Ryen, and Larsen.
