    • A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 am Wednesday, July 22, 2020, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Rayne, for Gladys Richard Maloz, 92, who passed away Monday, July 20, 2020, at 12:23 am at Acadia General Hospital in Crowley. Father Gary Schexnayder will officiate for the service. The family request visitation from 8 am until 10 am on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at Gossen Funeral Home. Burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery #2 in the Mausoleum.

      Ms. Gladys was employed at Mervin Kahn in various departments. After many years of service, Ms. Gladys decided to shift her career in another direction, taking on a new profession as a sales clerk at Cliff's Shoe Repair from 1978 until 1990.

      When the need for a full-time caretaker for her mom and dad arose, Ms. Gladys moved to Indian Bayou to care for her parents. In the early 90s, her brother James needed care as well; once again, Ms. Gladys answered the call by moving James into the same home as her parents so she could care for them all. After a short battle with cancer, James passed away on February 3, 2004. Shortly thereafter, Ms. Gladys's father, Dallas, began to take a turn for the worse, leading to his passing on January 1, 2001. When Ms. Gladys's own health started to decline, the family decided to admit their mom, Anna, to a long-term care facility in Rayne. Having never learned to drive, Ms. Gladys made many trips to Rayne Guest Home to visit her mom with the assistance of her brother, Gilford. She was a wonderful caretaker of her parents and her brother James. In 2012, Ms. Gladys herself needed long-term care, and she became a resident at what was then known as Rayne Guest House (now called The Ellington) until her passing early Monday morning.

      In her younger years, Ms. Gladys was the rock upon whom her brothers and sisters depended for assistance. Ms. Gladys's pride and joy, however, were her son Louis and her four grandchildren. Ms. Glady's sense of humor and the care with which she extended her loved ones was well known and admired within her family.
