Gladys Munroe Obituary

It is with profound sorrow and a sense of loving remembrance that we announce the departure of a truly remarkable woman, Gladys Francis Munroe, on January 29, 2024. Born on August 7, 1942, in Revere, Massachusetts, Gladys remained a proud resident of her birthplace throughout her life.

Gladys was an embodiment of generosity and love, a woman who could effortlessly light up a room with her funny anecdotes and witty banter. Her laughter was infectious, her spirit indefatigable, and her heart, a boundless ocean of love. As an adored mother, cousin, and friend, she lived a life that was a testament to her kind nature and selfless devotion. Gladys was a shining beacon of positivity, always ready with a comforting word or a cheerful smile. Her impact was felt by all who had the good fortune to know her. As George Elliot once said, "What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?" Indeed, Gladys lived this motto through her generous actions and warm disposition.

Gladys was the beloved widow of Thomas Munroe, and she is survived by her step-son, Peter Munroe, and her cousin, Shirley Doyle, along with numerous other cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, Francis and Gladys Ventola. Her radiant spirit and loving presence will be deeply missed and remembered by all her family, friends, and those whose lives she touched. 

A Funeral Mass will be held in honor of Gladys on Thursday, February 1, 2024, at 11:00 am, at St. Michael's Chapel, 91 Crest Avenue, Chelsea, Massachusetts, 02150.   For guest book please visit
