Gladys L. Hough

LAKE PLACID — Gladys L. Hough, 94, passed away Jan. 31, 2013, at Adirondack Medical Center-Uihlein in Lake Placid, where she had been a resident since Dec. 2008. She was born Sept. 18, 1918, the daughter of William and Nora (O'Neil) Hough and spent her youth in Franklin Falls.

Upon graduation from Plattsburgh Business Institute in 1938, her first job was as secretary for S. Curtis Hayes Insurance in Bloomingdale. This turned out to be the only job Gladys would ever have. Upon the death of Mr. Hayes in 1963, Gladys managed the business until it was purchased by Philip S. Feinberg and remained with the company until her retirement in 1980.

Gladys liked to play golf and was a member of the Saranac Lake Golf Club. She also was an avid bowler and had played on the S. Curtis Hayes Team for many years.

She is survived by two nieces, Karen and Elizabeth Kenny; two nephews, Kenneth and Paul Kenny, all of the Syracuse area; and a dear friend, Sanford Hayes of Bloomingdale.

She was predeceased by her parents; a brother, Joseph Hough; and a sister, Beulah Kenny.

There will be no calling hours. A funeral service will be held at 12 noon on Monday, Feb. 4, at St. Bernard's Church in Saranac Lake, with Rev. Bill Muench officiating. Burial will take place in May at St. Paul's Cemetery in the Town of Franklin.

Friends wishing to remember Gladys Hough may make memorial contributions to the High Peaks Hospice in care of the funeral home.

Family and friends can also share their memories and sign the online guestbook at fortunekeoughfuenralhome.com.
