Gladys Carolyn Brumbelow, 89 of China Spring, passed away Saturday, March 23, 2024. She is now home in Heaven with her savior, Jesus Christ, and loving husband, Glenn. Private family services will be held at a later date.

 Gladys was born January 4, 1935, in Hattiesburg, Mississippi to Hiram Edward Robinson & Mary Jane (Matthews) Robinson. She was raised in Mississippi and graduated from Gulfport High School. After graduation, she was employed by Southern Bell Telephone Company in Biloxi, Mississippi.

 Gladys met the love of her life, Glenn Leonard Brumbelow, while he was serving as a medic in the U.S. Air Force at Keesler AFB. They were married on August 8, 1953.

 After his honorable discharge from the U.S.A.F., they returned to Texas and raised their four children in McGregor, Waco and China Spring, Texas. Glenn and Gladys were members of Eagle Springs Baptist Church in McGregor, TX. Gladys retired in 1991 from Southwestern Bell Telephone in Waco.

 Gladys had an excellent green thumb and spent hours in her yard surrounded by plants and flowers that flourished under her care. Glenn and Gladys had a great amount of fun traveling with their RV, and with M&M Tours & Cruises. They also enjoyed square dancing at Allemande Hall in Speegleville, playing dominos (Mexican Train) with their many friends, and many activities in Eagle Springs.

 Gladys was preceded in death by her husband Glenn, parents Hiram Edward and Mary Jane (Matthews) Robinson, sister Betty Jean Evans, brother Edwin Hiram Robinson, and sister-in-law Linda Sue (Graham) Robinson.

 Gladys is survived by her son Don Brumbelow and wife Kim of Fayetteville, GA; daughters, Sue Roberts and husband John of Georgetown, TX, Judy Dickens and husband James of Waco, TX, and Pam Binion and husband Ron of College Station, TX; two sisters Margie Charolette "Polly" Martin, and Suzan Kate "Sue" Hover, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

 The family expresses much appreciation to everyone at Brookdale Western Hills and Baylor Scott & White Hospice for the amazing attentive care and love they gave Gladys and her family these last few years.

 In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Eagle Springs Cemetery in the care of Roy Martin at P.O. Box 482 McGregor, TX 76657.
