Gladys Louise Knight Wedding Morris

 

Gladys Louise Knight Wedding Morris, 98, of Owensboro, passed away on Friday, March 24, 2023 while under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky with her family by her side.  She was of the Baptist faith, but coined the phrase she was “Baplic” as she ensured her children were raised Catholic and she attended Mass at times as well as Baptist sermons.  She was born in Clay City on January 31, 1925 to the late Laura “Byrd” and Victor Knight. 

 

Gladys was preceded in death by her first husband of 45 years, Cliff Wedding of Carpenters Lake, and her second husband of 14 years, Jim “J.V.” Morris of Calhoun, daughters, Gayle Wedding Blumenberg, Connie Wedding Brown, Prissie Wedding Smith; grandson, Todd Lancaster;

nieces (she called her favorite) Sandy Logsdon and Marie Logsdon-James; siblings, Pauline Brewer, Jean Embry, Fay Logsdon, Bill Knight, Harold Knight, and Cliffy Knight.

 

Gladys is survived by her children, Pat Wedding Winstead (Mike) of Owensboro, Herbie Wedding of Maceo; nephews whom she called “her own” Dan Arnold (Sharon) of Frankfort, Bob Arnold (Debbie) of Utica; 10 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, four great great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, and Kay Meisenhelder, the first person she met at One Park Place, who became a loving best friend, her walking partner, and her co-hort in mischief.

 

Many have said their life was blessed to have met her.  She never met a stranger, all her friends were her best friend.  She was the most giving person you could meet.  Everyone she met could say they have a handmade craft, décor item, piece of jewelry, article of clothing, or a piece of homemade cake that she insisted they have.  She always dressed “to the nines” every day even if she was just staying in!  She was known for having a great sense of humor, quick-witted, a remarkable memory, the life of the party, loving and bossy at the same time.  She loved music and with her first husband Cliff, who played the steel guitar, would dress in Hawaiian attire and as their band played Hawaiian tunes, she sang and played the ukulele.

 

Her second family were those she met at One Park Place where she resided the last five years.  She made sure she had pictures of all her friends living there on her WiFi picture frame that she watched daily and shared with everyone. She loved living there, enjoyed the afternoon and evening gathering of friends.

 

The family would like to thank the staff at One Park Place for her wonderful years there.  Thanks to the Heartford House for making her journey to Heaven restful and peaceful.
