Milton — It’s likely to be a long time before Town of Milton residents will count among them someone as dedicated and spirited as Gladys M. Wilkins. Gladys died Dec. 23, at age 84, having lived her lifetime in the Milton farmhouse where she was born.

Gladys will be remembered for her volunteerism, Milton Mayor Marion Jones said at the April 7 mayor and town council meeting.

Gladys’ nephew Ed Maas of Seaford, his wife and daughters attended the meeting.

Jones read a proclamation honoring Gladys’ volunteer work with the Milton Century Club, Milton Garden Club, Milton Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, Milton Historical Society and other organizations.

Jones also proclaimed April as Volunteerism Month in the town, and she encouraged town residents to become involved with its volunteer organizations.

A photo portrait of Gladys is among those in the show Miltonians: The Portrait Show, on display until Tuesday, May 20, at the Milton Historical Society. The show features more than 30 portraits, many of Milton artists, all by Milton artists.
