Gladys Richardson

February 14, 1934 — October 29, 2019

Gladys Seymore Richardson, a long-time resident of Cuthbert, GA., died Tuesday morning, the 29th of October 2019 at Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home.             Gladys was born February 14, 1934 in Cuthbert, GA. to the late Castoria Seymore Sr. and Bobbie Lou Seymore-Baldwin. Gladys worked as a sharecropper for years with her grandmother, Victoria Moreland (who raised her), her brothers - Steve Seymore (deceased), Grover Seymore and sister Autry Seymore.  She would carry and tie her little brother, Castoria, to her hip as she worked in the fields. In her early years, Gladys attended Virgil Chapel where she became a member and was baptized.             In 1950 her family moved to West Palm Beach, FL.  It was in West Palm Beach, FL that she met and married, Stroller Richardson (deceased) and later had her only child, Glennelle Richardson. Gladys did not only raise her son, Glen, but she also helped in raising and taking care of her nieces and nephews. Gladys attended and became a member of Friendship Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Hall. She served at Friendship Baptist Church until she moved back to Cuthbert, GA. While living in West Palm Beach, FL, she worked at the Palm Beach’s restaurant, “Ta-boo”.             Gladys was a faithful, committed child of God and attended church regularly.  She loved to sing old hymns. Her favorite hymn was Zion. She would witness to and encourage her family members to follow the Word of God.  She would say, “You need to get ready to meet the Lord, because HE is coming back.” Gladys moved back to Cuthbert in 1976, and started working at Andrews College until the time her mother, Bobbie Lou, was terminally ill and she returned to West Palm Beach to care for her mother. She gave her mother the best nursing care possible, making sure that she was cleaned, comfortable and loved. After her mother passed, Gladys returned to Cuthbert, GA., to live among her family and friends; and to attend once again Virgil Chapel under the leadership of Rev. Ross. Gladys was a hard worker, tender-hearted, compassionate, humble and very loving person.             Gladys leaves to mourn her passing, her son, Glennelle Richardson, granddaughter, Glennette Richardson-Beadley (Romaine Beadley), sister – Autry Seymore Collins (Russell Collins Jr.), brothers – Grover C. Seymore and Castoria Seymore Jr., good friend and neighbor Mrs. Lizzie Holifield (Cuthbert, GA), her good friend, Betty Frazier-Andrews – (WPB, FL-PSL, FL) a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, sisters-in-laws, family and friends.
