- Gladys passed away on April 24, 2017 surrounded by her loving family. She was born on May 11, 1930 in Somerville, MA to Cmdr, Charles John Naumilket of the U.S. Navy and Gladys May Landick Naumilket. She graduated from Orono High School in 1948. Ronald Noyes and Gladys were married on June 17, 1950. They celebrated 66 joyous years of marriage last June. Gladys was the school secretary at Asa C. Adams School from 1961-1997. She doubled as school nurse and, as such, she wiped the tears away and fixed boo-boos for uncountable children. Gladys was loved by many as an active member of the Church of Universal Fellowship, Bangor Garden Club, Retired Teachers Association, and her class alumni. Gladys had a wry sense of humor and was a perpetual optimist. She enjoyed reading, traveling to her beloved Cape May, NJ., feeding the "wild things", and spending time with her ever growing family. She was, without a doubt, happiest when she was by the ocean. In addition to her parents, Gladys was predeceased by her sister, Charlotte Naumilket Crabtree. She is survived by her husband, Ronald C. Noyes or Orono, her son, Gary C. Noyes and daughter-in-law Michell Noyes, also of Orono, and her daughter, Kim Noyes Megorden and son-in-law J. Michael Megorden of Hillsboro, OR. In addition, 10 nieces, 1 nephew, and 20 grand nieces and nephews, who will miss their "Aunt Gladee" very much.
Visitation will be at the Church of Universal Fellowship, 86 Main St. Orono, ME. in the Gathering Place on Friday, May 5, 2017 from 5-7pm. A memorial service will be held at the Church of Universal Fellowship on Saturday May 6, 2017 at 2pm. A reception will follow in the Gathering Place.
