Gladys M. Holamon was born on December 26, 1927 in Halfway, TX to Samuel A. Avery and Nova Ethel Dudley and passed away peacefully on January 12, 2018. Although she was born in Halfway, she grew up in Brady, TX. Gladys was preceded In death by her husband James O. Holamon Sr. She is survived by her son James O. Holamon Jr. and wife Helen Ruth, and grandchildren Dana Holamon, Daniel Holamon and wife Rose.

By day Gladys was a full time bookkeeper for a large oil firm in Fort Worth for over 25 years. By night Gladys and her late husband Otis owned and operated a real estate agency (Holamon Enterprises) for almost a decade in which she was responsible for architectural and brokerage services for their clients. Another after hours hobby that Gladys held was her research of homeopathic/natural remedies which led her to her passion in the herb business that she operated from her home to help friends, family, coworkers, etc. find natural and more safe alternatives to synthetic medicines. In her earlier years Gladys was a reporter for the newspaper in Brady, Texas, where she grew up, and she also did reporting work for the Euless Herald once she moved into the DFW area.

In the more recent past you usually would find Gladys attending church services at Fielder Road Baptist Church where she was a member for over 30 years and she also held a seat on the public safety advisory board in her home town of Pantego where she was able to make contributions which had positive impact on her community. Gladys was a true pioneer of women in the workplace and she always worked hard nights and days to pursue her passions in life and has in turn passed down her great work ethic which will last for many generations.

A visitation for Gladys will be held Monday, January 15, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Moore Funeral Home, Arlington , Texas. A funeral service will occur Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 2:00 PM, Arlington , Texas. Followed by an interment at Shannon Rose-Hill Cemetery, 7301 East Lancaster, Fort Worth, Texas.
