The Beginning This journey called “life” began for Summer Gladney on October 7, 1984 on Blytheville Air Force Base, in Gosnell, Ar. She was born to Willie Gladney and Cynthia Snipes. Her Calling Summer professed hope in Christ at an early age at St. John Full Gospel Church and was baptized by Pastor Robert Johnson. By age 15, she was preaching and teaching the word of God. Full of wisdom she always appeared to be older than her age. Her Journey Home On June 18, 2019, at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, TN, with love ones by her side, Summer’s journey of life was complete. Heaven Bound Summer was preceded in death by her grandparents Mack and Bobbie Gladney. Her Life Journey Summer was a very intellectual, God- fearing woman. She was also a loving mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Her love for others motivated and brought her a generous amount of joy. Summer was a remarkable cook and enjoyed trying new foods and recipes. She also demonstrated a great affection for animals and nature. Summer graduated from Wooddale high School (Memphis, TN) in 2003, and continued her education at Southwest Tennessee Community College.
