Gladys Pauline Sullivan Our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Gladys Pauline Sullivan (Stolp), passed away peacefully the evening of September 5, 2020 in her home in Montgomery, Illinois. Her 90 years were filled with service to her family, friends, and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Customers of the Oswego Family Restaurant will remember her wonderful desserts and the many years she worked as a hostess.
She was born March 8, 1930 to John Augusta Stolp and Dorothea Anna Karolina Hardtkopf. At seventeen, she married Thomas John (Jack) Sullivan, who preceded her in death. They are now joyously reunited in heaven!
She was preceded in death by her sisters, Eleanor Carlson and Shirley Knopp. She is survived by her brother, James Stolp of Georgia, and her children: Cathy Mellor (Rick), Marge Schiltz, Dotty Hegland, Tim Sullivan (Sally), Gerry Sullivan (Beth), Patty Lang, David Sullivan (Julie), and Jacque Blom. She also raised two grandsons, Quentin Lang, and Tad Lang. She has over 70 grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren who love her and will miss her. She loved her many nieces and nephews. Special thanks goes to her niece, Judy Sollinger, for all she has done for Gladys over the years.
