Mrs. Friday was born March 5, 1956 and passed away November 28, 2020. Gladys, better known has “Happy”, had a favorite pastime of bowling. She also loved dancing. It didn’t even matter if there was any music. She was a great cook and always made sure no one left the table hungry.
“Happy” was a community mom who was always willing to take another child into her home. She loved without judgment. She would greet you with the sweetest smile and the biggest hug. Her presence lit up the room and she always left you smiling.
She never forgot a birthday and made everyone feel special. Her most precious moments were spent with family and friends. She definitely lived up to the name her Daddy had given her, “Happy.” She was truly the light in everyone’s darkness. She will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her parents; six brothers; and one sister.
“Happy” is survived by her husband of 44 years, Glenn Friday of Creston, LA; three children, Misty Lynn Friday of Creston, LA, William “Bubba” Friday, Jr. of Bossier City, LA, and Stephanie Rose Friday Doty and husband, Tommy of Benton, LA; one brother, Billy Ray Treadway of Jonesboro, LA; one sister, Carol Holland of Many, LA; four grandchildren, Kelsi Friday, Treven Payne, James Friday, and Karlee Doty; and numerous nieces and nephews.
