Gladys F Shipman was a pioneer and elder in our community. Powerful business woman that took her passion of caring for others and turned it into one of the most successful business ventures for women the state has seen. She was always a supporter and offered advice and wisdom. Greensboro has lost a giant! My prayers and sympathy goes out to her entire family & all those who were touched by her.
