- SYMPATHY NOTE
Gladys R. Grack
Gladys R. Troncone Grack, 93, of Erie, passed away peacefully Monday July 20, 2020 at her residence surrounded by her loving family. She was born October 6, 1926, a daughter of the late Frederico and Alessandria Amato Troncone.
Gladys was a kind hearted, loving, and funny woman who could make anyone smile. The light and beautiful energy she brought through dancing, singing, the occasional curse word, and cracking jokes (Aflack!) was enjoyed by everyone around her. With a lifetime of experience and knowledge, she never failed to surprise people with her inspirational spirit, independence, and necessary sassiness. Gladys will forever be missed by the many people who love and cherish her. Rest in Peace Gladys.
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Anthony J. Grack; her son, Ronald Grack; a daughter-in-law Bonnie Grack; five brothers and one sister.
Gladys is survived by her sons, David Grack, Anthony "A.J." Grack (Dory), and Gary Grack, all of Erie. She is also survived by her grandchildren, David (Amy), Anthony (Angela), Julie, Ashley (Jesse), Sophia, Sylvia, Gabrielle (James), Dominic, and Carmen; and eleven great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank her caregiver, Tammy Cacchione, who has been a great gift to both Gladys and her loved ones.
