Mrs. Gladys Belle Wilson StarrJanuary 20, 1926 ~ March 20, 2017 (age 91)
Evans Funeral Home announces the death of Mrs. Gladys Belle Wilson Starr who went home to our Lord and Savior on March 20, 2017 after 91 years of blessing us with her unconditional love. Although she endured much pain and suffering she never complained and most of all never lost her faith. Even when her memory had failed her due to Alzheimer’s, she could still sing the old gospel songs she grew up singing and would pray as if she had no disease at all, always ending with “we give you all the glory for all our blessings”. Gladys loved her family and her friends and would do anything to help others.
Gladys was a hard worker and retired after 25 years at C & S Bank in Tucker and Athens, Georgia. She loved planting flowers, bowling, horseshoes, sewing, quilting, cooking, playing with her grandchildren and going to Church.
Gladys was born on January 20, 1926 in Randolph County, Alabama to Charles Rayburn Wilson and Julie Vester Hill. She was married 42.5 years to her late husband Harold Curtis Starr. She is survived by her three children and their spouses, Ken and Esther Starr, Darlene and Mills Rowland and Pat and Richard Workman; her three grandchildren, Kevin, Douglas, and Bailey and five great grandchildren. Gladys is preceded in death by six brothers and one sister and survived by sisters Blondale, Sheila and Joyce and brothers, Jerry and Iolus.
A celebration of Gladys’ life will be held at Oak Grove Baptist Church, 4921 Jackson Trail Road, Hoschton, Georgia on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 11:00 A.M.. Burial will follow in the Church cemetery. Gladys requested donations be made to Oak Grove Baptist Church in lieu of flowers. No visitation is planned.
