Gladys Marie (Ouellette) Graczyk, beloved wife of Clarence (Chuck) S. Graczyk, with whom she shared 63 loving years of marriage, left us peacefully on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Salem, MA on May 8, 1932, she was the daughter of Arthur and Sophie (Kobierski) Ouellette. After graduating from Salem High School in 1949, she earned her degree from Burdette College. She worked at A.C. Lawrence, The House of Seven Gables, and St. Johnís Preparatory High School.
Gladys and Chuck shared an extraordinary marriage and their love for each other laid the foundation for a close-knit and loving family. She was truly devoted to her family and was always involved with her children's and grandchildren's activities. Gladys was a terrific cook and an exceptional seamstress, making everything from Halloween costumes to her daughter's wedding dress.
Gladys was predeceased by her beloved first son Carl Graczyk who passed in 1977. In addition to her husband, Gladys is survived by her four children: Debra Graczyk and her husband John Galanis of Ipswich, Rona Graczyk- Femino and her husband Leonard Femino of Beverly, Scott Graczyk and his wife Michelle Graczyk of Fairfield, CT, and Steven Graczyk of Danvers.
