Gladys B. Keel, born on May 28, 1958, bid farewell to this world on April 28, 2024, in her home place of Beaufort County. She lived a life that spanned 65 years, filling those years with simple pleasures and unwavering devotion to her loved ones.

Gladys was known for embodying the role of a dedicated homemaker, finding joy in caring for her family and tending to her beloved rose bushes. Her interests were as pure and loving as her heart, with a special fondness for her dogs that always brought a smile to her face.

In her journey through life, Gladys led a basic yet fulfilling existence, finding happiness in the everyday moments spent with those dear to her. Along with her children, she devoted her time to caring for her parents in their later years, embodying the true essence of love and compassion.

Gladys is survived by her son, James Keel, Jr., her daughter, Amy Fulford (Neil), as well as her brothers, Steven Bell (Susan) and Michael Bell. She leaves behind cherished memories and a legacy of love that will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew her.

Her beloved parents, Charlotte Pinkham and Thurman Lawrence Bell preceded her in death.
