GLORIA A. GAWLAS (YOUNG), age 84, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 14, 2023. Gloria was born in Aspinwall to the late Emma E. Young (Brown) and Glenn A. Young on October 3, 1938. Gloria was a 1956 graduate of Aspinwall High School

Today I found an email from Gloria that was sent quite a few years ago. I wish I had found it a few months ago so I could have gotten in touch with Gloria. I would like to extend my sympathies to your family for your loss. I am the oldest living daughter of John Paul Young and Elaine M Hutchinson Young. My Grandfather is Paul H Young, who was the brother to Gloria's Dad, Glenn Young. If you want to get in touch with me and share some family stories, I can be reached at the email listed below. I am living in Florida now.
