Gladys Lee Bunch

October 11, 1951 — December 2, 2022

Chesapeake

Gladys Lee Bunch (affectionately known as Gladys Bow), a loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, and Cousin was called from earth to glory on Friday, December 2, 2022.

Gladys grew up in Portsmouth, Virginia and was educated in Portsmouth Public Schools. She attended Norfolk State College, Norfolk, Virginia, but received her BS degree in Organizational Management and Development from Bluefield College in Bluefield, Virginia.                                                                             

Gladys’ management skills led to several contracting positions over the years. Her cheerful and friendly nature was always appreciated by her family, friends and co-workers. Gladys was an advocate for many co-workers on her jobs, whether it was defending them or comforting them.

She was a faithful member and servant at Trinity Temple Church, Portsmouth, Virginia, where Bishop Benjamin Adamson, Jr. is the pastor. Gladys was a licensed Evangelist, and she served faithfully in various ministries at her church, even when she was dealing with her health problems. We may not be able to hold her in our arms, but we will always hold her in our hearts.

Gladys was preceded in death by her parents, Deacon Jesse Blow and Mother Gladys Blow. She leaves to rejoice in her home going and to celebrate her memory: two daughters, Valencia Bunch of Stafford, Virginia; Erinne Rodgers of Columbia, South Carolina; one son, Terrence Bunch (Kala) of Newport News, Virginia; three sisters, Shirley Blow-Brockman of Suffolk, Virginia; Jessie Hill of Portsmouth, Virginia; Linda Hancock of Chesapeake, Virginia; one brother, Michael Blow (Bernice) of Chesapeake, Virginia; nine grandchildren, Aryana Lanier, Brian Bunch, Jazmyn Bunch, Jozeth Bunch, Jaxson Bunch, Jayce Bunch, Amir Rodgers, Josiah Rodgers, and Brandon Rodgers, Jr.; three uncles, Samuel Clifton, Alphonso Clifton and James Blow; two aunts, Mae Robinson and Doris Wiggins, along with a host of cousins, friends and her Trinity Temple Church Family.
