Gladys Baber Berlin

Gladys Baber Berlin, 78, of Cartersville, Va. passed away October 17, 2019. She was preceded in death by her parents, James A. and Marie K. Baber. She is survived by her children, Elizabeth Walker (James), Daniel Berlin, III (Anne), and Catherine Saydlowski; grandchildren, Christine Chumney, Jessica Berlin, Megan Walker, Daniel Berlin IV, Rhiannon Saydlowski, Ashley Walker, Rowan Saydlowski and Samantha Berlin; great-grandchildren, Raegan and Aiden Chumney; brother, James Baber (Liezel); and longtime companion, Tony Graham.

Gladys lived a long and happy life on the farm she treasured, caring for animals and making things grow with her green thumbs. There wasn’t anything she couldn’t do. She was a storyteller, nuclear worker, painter, tax accountant, softball player, and a Richmond City Foster Mother of the Year. The role she valued most was mother, and for that she deserves all praise. The family will receive friends 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, October 26 at Bliley’s-Chippenham, 6900 Hull Street Rd., Richmond.
