Gladys Marie Estep, 80 of Leonardtown, MD, "aka" Snookie, was born on March 13, 1938 to the late Joseph and Elizabeth Winters of Mechanicsville, MD. God our Father saw it fit to call Gladys home from her labor to her reward on Tuesday, December 4, 2018. Gladys was surrounded by her loving children and siblings at St. Mary's Nursing Center (Hospice), Leonardtown, MD. Gladys earned her education through the St. Mary's County School System.

"Gladys" worked various jobs as a food preparer and private duty nursing. Gladys' favorite pastime was dancing, going to the casino, playing lottery, bingo and cooking for everyone, including the seniors in her building. Gladys loved talking "stuff" with her family and friends. She always kept you laughing and very straight to the point. Gladys was very particular about her hair styles and her outfits. Even while living in the nursing home, she always wanted her hair rolled nightly and if we were not there to do it, the GNA's would roll her hair. Also, Gladys would receive a weekly visit from her "great granddaughter", Terriya Harris.
