Gladys Carol Reisenbeck, 86, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 30, 2022 at Baptist Village Care Center in Erlanger, KY. She was born on March 20, 1936 in Cincinnati, Ohio to the late Robert and Clarice Daniel Brockman.

Gladys was a resident of Independence, KY where she and her late husband Frank raised their four children. She was a homemaker for many years until her children were grown. She then worked at St. Elizabeth South for several years before retiring. Gladys was a member at United Methodist Church in Walton, KY and was a big part of the Walton Senior Center. She had a huge heart and great love for animals. In her spare time, she volunteered at animal shelters and played a large role in finding foster homes as well as forever homes for dogs and cats. Gladys loved art and enjoyed writing poems. However, her greatest joy besides helping animals was her family. She cherished the time she spent with her children and grandchildren more than anything. If you knew Gladys, you knew she could always make you laugh even when she wasn’t trying. Her sweet spirit, compassion for others, and kind soul will be missed by many.

Gladys is preceded in death by her parents; husband Frank Reisenbeck and son Frankie Reisenbeck. Those left here to carry on her legacy are her children, Richard (Cheryl) Reisenbeck, Joyce (Ken) Ray, Carol (Fred) Lemkuhl; grandchildren, Nicole Reisenbeck, Richard Reisenbeck, Austin Reisenbeck, Adam (Brooke)Ray, Ethan (Emma) Ray, Jessica Ray, Cheyanne Ray, Chris Ray, Angie McPherson, Rebecca Reisenbeck: great-grandchildren Wyatt Ray, Emma Gillespie, Zachary Reisenbeck, Daniel Reisenbeck, Aaron Reisenbeck and her four-legged friend, Buddy the cat.
