Life Story for Gladys Pearl Horowitz

Gladys Pearl  Horowitz
Gladys Horowitz taught for over a quarter of a century in the NYC public school system, Sullivan County Community College and Monticello High School. After earning her Bachelor of Science degree from Brooklyn college and earning her Masters of Science in Biology from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, she devoted her career as a laboratory technician and as an educator, to encouraging students, young and older, to reach their potential no matter what their circumstances. Gladys also served as the first female President of the Monticello Volunteer Ambulance Corps and volunteered with YOPAS (YMCA Outreach Programs for Ahwatukee Seniors) for many years. Considered a mother-figure, inspiration, and friend to so many, her smile beamed across the room.

Gladys is survived by her sister, Eleanor, her three children: Arthur Lerner-Lam (Eva), Paul Huey-Burns (Melissa), and David Horowitz (Damon), her seven grandchildren: Patrick, Timothy (Soyeon), Caitlin (Matt), Matthew, Ciara, Kate, and Conor, and her two great children: Makayla and Peter. She is preceded in death by her husbands Jay Burns and Joseph Horowitz.
