Gladys Rose Greene, 65, of Hebron, passed away Friday, May 15, 2009, at Glens Falls Hospital.
She was born Feb. 3, 1944, in Hebron, the daughter of the late Raymond and Vivian (Crandal) Jones. Gladys attended Salem Washington Academy and was a certified nurse’s aide, an occupation she loved because she enjoyed caring for people.
Gladys also assisted in the operation of the family dairy farm with her husband, Nelson. Gladys was a member of the Hebron Volunteer Fire Company Auxiliary for many years and loved flowers and taking care of animals, especially cats and calves.

Greene; a daughter, Darlene McMorris of Salem; a son, Vincent “Vince” Greene and his wife, Nancy, of Hebron; a brother, Stephen Jones and his wife, Betty, of Kentucky and a sister-in-law, Pat Jones of Argyle, N.Y. Gladys is also survived by her grandchildren, Donald McMorris Jr. of Georgia, Ashley McMorris of Salem, Koby Greene and Kyle Greene, both of Hebron; a great-grandson, Dylan McMorris-Hotaling of Salem; and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Gladys was also pre-deceased by her son-in-law, Donald “D.J.” McMorris, and a brother, Ronald Jones.
