May 11, 1932 - March 2, 2021
Legacy of Life The harvest does not speak of an untimely cutting down of the grain; rather it speaks of it being in its season. Therefore, the life lived by our departed love one should not be viewed as untimely, but in it’s season, the season of God’s choosing. To live fully would involve growing physically, intellectually, and most of all spiritually to have a love and compassion for family. Embracing the appreciation for the one that gave life, gave provision, good or bad; realizing it all is granted possible through the blessings of Jesus Christ. Gladys Washington was born into this life on May 11, 1932 and entered eternal rest on Tuesday March 2, 2021. She was born to the late Rose and James Washington in Bayard Jacksonville, Florida. At the age of 12 years old she moved to New Jersey. She completed her education at Central High School in Newark, NJ. She worked and retired from AT&T after 23 years of dedicated service. She loved the Lord whole hardily and whatever she set her hands to do she did it as unto the Lord. She was always direct in her speaking but did it out of love. Gladys was wise and gave good advice, you could always go to her and receive good council. She was fun and loved people and would do anything for anyone. Her greatest joy was working and helping others. She enjoyed singing in the church and was the church mother. She helped wherever she was needed and would do what needed to be done. She was affectionately known as “Mini Ma”. This name was given to her by Rev. Wallace. Most of all she was an extraordinary mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, godmother and dear friend. Gladys leaves to cherish her memory: a loving daughter, Clarice Washington; one granddaughter, Shannon Washington, one sister/best friend, Irene Jenkins; one brother, Charles Jenkins; niece and God-daughter, Kim Brooks; nephew, Lawrence Jenkins and Ronald Jenkins; a host of God-children, Rev. Shawn T. Wallace, Sr., Rayshel Campana and Minister Shaunda Owens; along with a host of family members and friends.
