Gladys Gray of Accord, NY died peacefully on Saturday, July 6, 2013 with her husband at her bedside. She was 75 years old. Gladys was born on December 3, 1937 in Kerhonkson, NY the daughter of the late Ross and Catherine (Vandemark) Churchill.


On July 9, 1961 Gladys had married Russell Gray at the Rochester Reformed Church. Gladys and Russell have always had a wonderful connection having known each other from very early childhood. Together in life they enjoyed hunting and fishing and loved teaching their experience to their extended family. The family farm kept everyone busy with all the work that had to be done and mostly by hand. Gladys had worked for Channel Master for 29 years and then for 11 years with Imperial Schrade. The good memories of camping and water skiing at Lake George, the snowmobiling club and many others will never be forgotten.


Besides her husband Russell, Gladys is survived by her nieces and their families; Lynn Churchill and her son William Doyle III, Dawn Krom and her husband Andrew and their son Ross, and Carla Churchill. Also surviving are her sister-in-law Elinor Churchill, and her brother-in-law Vernon Gray and his wife Lou. Gladys was predeceased by her brother Ross Churchill.


Visiting will be held on Wednesday, July 10th from 10-11am at H.B. Humiston Funeral Home, 30 42nd St., Kerhonkson. A celebration of her life will follow the visitation at 11am at the funeral home.

I'm remembering the times we spent with you and Aunt Gladys. The BBQ's, swimming in your pool, feeding the turkeys and racoons and eating venison! We always had so much fun with you both. I will miss aunt Gladys.

So sorry to hear about Gladys. She always had a smile when I'd see her at Ricky-Lens on Monday nights.

Lucille Ebert Jul 9 2013 12:00 AM

I will be out of the area on Wednesday.  Gladys was one of my absolute favorite people and truly will be missed.  I loved hearing her and Russell tell stories about growing up in this area and how things used to be.  What a team they made, two warm and welcoming people.  Samsonville church dinners will never be the same without looking out into the crowd and seeing Russell and Gladys together.  I will forever remember her each time I string the Christmas lights around my outside tree as she told me how much she enjoyed them.  So many good memories of a wonderful lady.
