Obituary of Gladys May McGregor
On September 11, 2018 Gladys May Klink McGregor was carried by angels to Heaven. She was the daughter of Dollie and Alfred Klink, Sr. She was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years William Harold "Mac" McGregor, beloved daughter Gladys Elizabeth Ireland and great-grandson Thomas "Tommy" Alexander Biddle.
She leaves behind her son William Curtis "Bud" McGregor, (wife Linda) of Brownfield, Pa., Juanita Joy Johnson (husband Ken) of Lewisburg, WV, Lynn Keener (ex-husband Harold) of Morgantown, WV, and special grandson Paul Allen "Chip" Ireland (wife Barb) of Grafton, WV. Gladys was blessed with 8 grand-children, 15 great grand-children and 5 step great-great grand-children. She is also survived by her sister Lydia Penwell and brother Alfred Klink Jr. (wife Ruth).
Gladys fulfilled her youthful dream of becoming a nurse in October 1964 and worked at West Virginia University Hospital for 24 years and retired in 1988. Then in 1993 traveled to Twin Wells Indian School in Arizona to be the school nurse. She left her position at the school to move to Elkins and at age 72 helped to start a new church.
Gladys loved the Lord and was a member of the Free Methodist Church for many years where she served as Sunday School teacher, taught crafts for Vacation Bible School and provided many beautiful flower arrangements and bulletin boards for the church. She was a helping hand or a listening ear for any who was in need. She read her Bible and prayed daily; a powerful prayer warrior.
A special Thank You to all the staff at West Virginia Caring who cared for her in her last days.
Friends and family will be received at Hastings Funeral Home, 153 Spruce St., Morgantown, on Thursday, September 13th from 11 AM until the time of the funeral service at 12:00 Noon with Pastor Barbara Hamrick officiating. Interment will follow at Beverly Hills Memorial Gardens in Westover.
In lieu of flowers, I am sure Gladys would want you to send a note of encouragement and love to someone who needs it.
