Gladys Faye Nolan Bouse (99) passed away on July 21, 2021 in Beaumont, Texas She was born in Fred, Texas to her parents, G.W. and Ella Nolan on February 17, 1922.
Gladys lived in Tyler County until she married her late husband Douglas M. Bouse in 1943. They moved to Winnie and she spent the majority of her life there. Gladys was a loving housewife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunt. She loved quilting, fishing, and eating cornbread and watermelon. Her favorite past time was sitting on the arm of Doug's chair helping him watch the evening news and singing him silly songs. Gladys came to know the Lord in her 20's and served God with her whole heart. She walked closely with the Lord and was quick to do his will. It was not unusual for she and Doug to drive hours to pray for someone or lead them to the Lord. Gladys read her Bible daily until it was worn out and then would buy a new one and start over. Her dream was to be a foreign missionary, but God's plan was for her to be a witness to all those she came in contact with. Gladys touched so many lives and won many souls for the Kingdom of God. She was a mighty woman of God and will be missed by all those that had the privileged to know her.
Gladys is survived by her son, Douglas Wayne Bouse; her granddaughters, Rachel Bouse Rutledge, and Katherine Bouse; her great-grandson William “Blythe Bouse; her daughter-in-law, Renee Bouse Murrell; her numerous nieces and nephews; along with other loving family members.
Gladys is preceded in death by her loving husband of 66 years, Douglas Merle Bouse; her parents, G.W. and Ella Nolan; along with her siblings.
