Gladys Trent Obituary

Gladys L. Peyton Trent of Morehead, Kentucky, was born on January 30, 1934, in Morgan County, Kentucky, the daughter of Wesley Cletis Peyton and Carmen Osborne Peyton.  She departed this life peacefully on November 19, 2023, in Georgetown, Kentucky.  Gladys was preceded in death by her loving husband, Robert L. Trent, after forty-four years in marriage; one brother, Vondal Ray Peyton; and sisters, Leta E. McGhee and Mary Benner Peyton.

She is survived by one son, Dr. Robert C. Trent and his wife Sheila of Georgetown; one granddaughter, Molly Jean Thompson and her husband, Robert Zachery of Westerville, Ohio; and three great grandchildren, Dylan Joseph Thompson, Brooklyn Jean Thompson, and Dominic Trent Thompson.

Also surviving are three sisters, Wilma Fern McKinney of Camargo, Kentucky, Dimple Murphy of Fairland, Indiana, and Nova Gail Sommers of Indiana; a special friend, Angie Tackett; several nieces and nephews; special church family; and other extended family and friends.

After living for several years in Ohio, the family moved back to Kentucky to be near family. They moved to Morehead in 1979.  Gladys remained there until 2023 when due to declining health she moved to Georgetown, Kentucky, to be closer to family.

Gladys was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She lived her life helping to care for others. Following her mother’s death when she was sixteen, Gladys quit school to care for her brother and sisters. After her husband became disabled, she provided care until his death in 2002. Prior to and following his death, she would sit with others who needed a helping hand in their home. Gladys loved to cook and would make a variety of candies each year at Christmas. These things brought her enjoyment and provided a purpose during her later years. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

Gladys was saved and baptized at Ringos Mills Christian Church in Fleming County, Kentucky, where she came to know the peace he promised and the joy of a job well done.  She counted her many blessings along the way and was always grateful for each one. Gladys sought to earn salvation in the twilight years of life. Sometimes her cross was hard to bear, and there seemed to be darkness everywhere, however the sun began to rise and hope was born within. A rainbow formed from her tears; her faith always stronger than her fears.
