Gladys Burts

March 2, 1946 ~ June 18, 2018 (age 72)

I, Gladys Louise Burts, also known as “Coca Cola” began this journey called life on March 2, 1946.  Yes I am the oldest of four children.  We were born to Carrie Lee and Robert Lee Burts in Macon County, Alabama.   We received our education in East Chicago IN.  Our parents provided a stable home with a strict up bringing for my siblings Robert (Boly), Johnnie (Chick), Joe and myself. They instilled in us family values and showed us unity and laughter.    
 I was gainfully employed by the United States Postal Service until I took my last breathe. I served New Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church nurses guild until my health began to fail. I also served on the Parent Advisory Board for East Chicago Public School System and volunteered my time to help others. I lived life for my grand children...they were my heart.  Spoiling them was my life goal.  I just hope they know how much I loved them.  I was blessed to have two daughters Lena Simone, and Jo Anne who I loved with all of my heart.  You will always have the true essence of me by looking at my daughters. I raised them with lots of love, discipline and determination. They have become everything I always wished for I am proud to call them mine.  
 On Monday, June 18, 2018, at 12:27 PM, I answered the gentle call of my loving Father from earthly labor to heavenly rest.  I joined my parents Carrie Lee, and Robert Lee, my bother Joe, my grand parents Louis and Luerannie Tolbert and several aunts and uncles to rejoice with the Lord.  
 I leave to carry on my legacy my two children, Lena S. Minor of Austell, GA; Jo Anne (Brian) Davis of West Palm Beach, FL; My eight Grandchildren: Keyontria (Wilky) Charles, Donald (Shaquita) Noble, Isaiah (Jaisa) Minor, Taylor Davis and Tylor Davis; my four Great Grandchildren: Jajuan Noble, Ashanti Noble, Kallan Charles, Donald Noble III.
