Gladene Sandidge Davis departed her life peacefully in her home on November 17, 2020, her 79th birthday. Gladene was born to Moses and Evelyn Sandidge in Amherst County where she grew up. She graduated from Central High School, and later moved to Lynchburg, where she worked at General Electric for several years. Gladene studied and became a licensed beautician and had an in-home beauty shop. She was also a well-known professional seamstress and worked many years at S&K Menswear. After retiring she continued the professions that she loved so much from her home up until she became ill in 2018. Gladene always exemplified a Godly, kind, humble, sweet and graceful spirit.
