Gladys Bella Amick passed away at 5.56pm on 18 July.
Mrs. Amick served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during WWII. She was a retired U.S. Federal Service Professional. She was the wife of Benjamin C. Amick; a veteran of Korean and Vietnam wars.
She will be sadly missed by her children, Benjamin, Robert, Keith and John. She is further survived by grandchildren to include Emily, Joshua, Alexandria, Dylan, Danny, Sara, Julia, Jessica, Rachel, and Macy.
She is a member of the Sixardee (1940-1945) Association, the American Legion Post No. 0001, the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks of the USA Lodge 2113, as well as the La Cita Country Golf and Country Club.
Gladys grew up in Canada during lean times, and heeded the call of the Monarchy by joining the Royal Canadian Air Force when she turned 18 in 1942. After initial training her unit was deployed to Manchester England to support the aircraft maintenance war time mission.
Gladys moved to the United States after the war and met Benjamin C. Amick, who was in San Francisco, CA, serving in the Navy.
Gladys and Ben were well known while working over 20 years in the Washington Navy yard, where Gladys excelled as the Personnel Department Executive Assistant, and then Management Analyst leading an A76 study of Washington Navy Yard organizations. Her accomplishments earned her merit awards almost every year of her government service career.
Gladys and Ben moved to Florida to enjoy a well-deserved retirement. Gladys was well known in the Titusville community as an outstanding cook who hosted many successful gatherings, an ardent supporter of the Titusville Playhouse, an organizer of a bridge tournament that ran 17 years, and a selfless supporter of the Senior Center.
Gladys’ joy for life, her smile, and the love we shared with her continue to live in all of us.
Friends will be received at the North Brevard Funeral Home at 4:00pm the 24th of July.
