PHOTOS: Gladys' Celebrations

Gladys Magee (nee Murray) married long-time friend William Campbell, on November 16, 1963.


Gladys was known as Mom Magee for as long we can remember. As she was dating Bill (for the longest engagement in history), he became known as Pop Campbell. Mom and Pop were inseparable. When Mom Magee's husband, Dave, passed away in Cardinal, Ontario, it was time for Mom and Pop to get married. From then on, Gladys was known as Mom Campbell.


These photos recall the wedding celebration.
