Gladys Dalton KC4YYB / SK

Hello Everyone

It is with a sad heart we honor one of our members who has passed away. Gladys Dalton has been battling several health conditions the past few years died late Wednesday night. Let’s keep Jim Dalton K4FPG and their family in our prayers .

Gladys W. Dalton, age 78, of Harriman, died at Harriman Care and Rehab Center on Wednesday, May 10, 2017. She was born November 6, 1938, in the Pine Orchard Community of Morgan County to Houston and Blanch (Coffman) Watson. She is preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Alvin and Billy Watson; and sister, Vannie Underwood.

Gladys is survived by her husband of 37 years, James S. (Jim) Dalton; son and daughter-in-law, Steve and Jenny Dalton; grandchildren, Hunter, Haley and Hadlee Dalton; sisters, Mona Powell, Irene Helton, Dot Summers and June Horton (Bobby); and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and sister-in-law Martha Lee Dalton.

She was a proud graduate of the Class of 1958 at Oakdale High School. Her work experience included being a sales clerk at Acme and Margrave Drug stores in Harriman. Gladys was a member of Trenton Street Baptist Church where she worked in the Sunday school and on the Auditing Committee. She held Amateur Radio License (KC4YYB) and was a member of the Roane County Amateur Radio Club. Although being confined to home for many years due to failing health, she had a card ministry where she sent cards monthly to shut-in church members and friends.

The family will receive friends on Monday, May 15, 2017, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., at Kyker Funeral Home in Harriman. Funeral will immediately follow with Pastor Tony Boswell, Bro. Ted Taylor and Bro.
