Biography

Gladys was born in Texas on the 4th of July in 1903, the daughter of James and Annie Yates.

On September 25, 1921, Gladys married Collie Williford, the son of Elijah and Ida Lou (Hightower) Williford, in Harrison, Texas.

Collie and Gladys would have the following children:

Elijah James Williford (1923–2014)

Lottie Virginia (Williford) Martin (1928–2016)

Robert Yates Williford (1932- )

Collie was a mechanic in Texas, but then he took a job with a fuel pipeline company in Louisiana. This is where Gladys passed away in 1946 at just 42 years of age. Her body was taken to home to Texas where she is buried in the Algoma Cemetery South and North in Marshall, Harrison County, Texas.
