Gladys T. Burns

Brothers and Sisters:

It is with great sadness that I regret to inform you of the passing of Mrs. Gladys T. Burns, 90, who passed Monday, April 6, 2020. Gladys was the mother of John Burns, Senior Staff Representative with RI Council 94, AFSCME.

Gladys was the Secretary to the Mayor of Central Falls from 1978 to 1991 for three different Mayors. Prior to that, she was the School Secretary in the Central Falls School District and a member of RI Council 94 AFSCME, AFL-CIO. She served on the Central Falls Housing Board of Commissioners for over 25 years.

She will be sorely missed by everyone.

Interment will be private due to the Covid-19 crises. A Catholic celebration of life will be announced at a later date when it is safe to congregate in large groups. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Saint Antoine Residence Activity Fund. Please see link below:…

With Deepest Condolences,

J. Michael Downey
RI Council 94, AFSCME
