<div itemprop="description">MCKEOWN-BAINBRIDGE, GLADYS <br>It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Gladys Mary McKeown-Bainbridge on March 12, 2017 at the age of 94, beloved mother, grandmother, wife and aunt. Gladys was born on July 13, 1922 in Ellershouse, NS. She was the daughter of the late Arthur and Mary Lazenby of Halifax. She is predeceased by three sons, Richard (January 1985), Kevin (March 1986) and Michael (July 1988), first husband Thomas Edmund McKeown (December 1983) and second husband, George Bainbridge (April 2012).

Gladys was one of the strongest women ever, surviving great sorrow first in the deaths of her three young sons, followed by her beloved husband, Tom.
