Gladys J. (Uliasz) Knapp, 87, longtime Southington resident, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 4, 2020. She was the devoted wife of the late Edward J. Knapp for 67 years.

Gladys was born in Meriden on November 29, 1932 to the late Stanley and Karoline (Knap) Uliasz.

She worked as an executive officer at the former Southington Savings Bank for over 30 years where she ran the Queen Corner office.  She was a longtime parishioner at the Immaculate Conception Church. Gladys and her husband Ed enjoyed many years vacationing at their Maine and Florida homes. Gladys was an artist at creating handmade heirloom quilts and was an avid knitter, crocheter and baker.
