Gladys Hackney Thomas, 93, of Pittsboro, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on February 17, 2021.

Gladys was born in Durham, N.C., on November 19, 1927, to Walter and Katie Hackney. She was a homemaker, helped her husband operate Thomas Brothers Furniture Company in Pittsboro, worked and retired from UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, and was a dedicated Sunday school teacher for many years. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and will be dearly missed by her family.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Julian Thomas, a son, Douglas Thomas, and grandson, Jacob Cotten, great-granddaughter Evie Judge, great-grandson, Lennox Tibbitt, and brother, Walter S. Hackney.

She is survived by her children, Kathy Justice (Greenville, N.C.), Rusty Thomas, (Pittsboro, N.C.), Jane Tibbitt (Greenville, N.C.), and Janet Perry (Snow Camp, N.C.): eight grandchildren, Donna, Aimee, Frank Jr., Natalie, Shari, Emily, Kimberly and BJ, 19 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated in Gladys’ memory to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, 1 Billy Graham Parkway, Charlotte, N.C. 28201.
