Edith Gladys Wynne (1876-1968)

She was the fourth daughter Archdeacon George Wynne and his wife Nell, nee Smith.

She spent much of her life in Co Wicklow, which was a favorite subject for her watercolors. She made her living by her paintings and never seemed to tire of painting the lovely valley of Glendalough.

Gladys died in April 1968. The Rector's wife wrote of her funeral:

“On the day that Stanley buried Gladys Wynne from Glendalough, a gale tore across the land and hurtled round Derralossary Church. Stanley and she had often gone painting together and once, in Glenmacnass Valley, as they made their way down to the river they had to climb a barbed-wire fence. Gladys' long tweed skirt was caught on the barbs and, legs and grey woollen stockings torn, she had to be extricated. After that her friends told the eighty-five-year old not to join Stanley on his painting expeditions again. On that wild winter's day of her funeral, with the stunted trees in Derralossary graveyard bending to the  ground by the force of the gale, at the very moment of committal, the wind whipped the stole from round Stanley's neck and flung it into the open grave. Was Gladys saying a last, mischievous farewell to him?”
