Dec. 26, 1936 — Jan. 24, 2021
INDIAN LAND, SC — Gladys Ann Tyndall went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Jan. 24, 2021, with her family by her side.
She was born Dec. 26, 1936, in Youngsville to Foster and Lillie Bell White. She was the eldest of six children, the only daughter, and was preceded in death by her brothers Lawrence, Lin and Martin.
Gladys grew up on the family farm and attended Oak Grove Baptist Church with her father every Sunday. The love of her life walked into the church when he was attending Seminary at Wake Forest University. Charles Hall Tyndall saw Gladys singing in the choir, and it was love at first sight. They were married in the same church the Sunday after she graduated from high school.
Gladys and Charles relocated frequently around the state following Charles’ Air Force and sales career. They always found a way to share the love of Christ with everyone they met. The couple spent eight years ministering at Shaw Heights Baptist Church in Fayetteville, where they began a kindergarten program and led many families to the Lord. Gladys also developed a training program for other teachers in the state.
The family moved to Charlotte in 1974 to pastor Jackson Park Baptist Church, where Gladys faithfully stood by and supported Charles in every way. She was the music director and also led many other ministries for the church. The family later started Tyndall Furniture Galleries (originally known as Country Living Furniture) which has been family owned and operated for 37 years. Gladys attended CPCC to learn everything she needed to know about how to run the accounts and financial side of the company. She worked in all aspects of the company along with her family and served in an advisory capacity for the last few years.
She was a passionate and dedicated Christian who led the family and many others in their faith. She was a mother to all, including extended family and friends, as well as many Tyndall Furniture employees. Her passions included travel, music and telling people about Jesus.
Gladys is now survived by her children, Diane Tyndall Jones and her husband, Ellis, and Charles “Chuck” Hall Tyndall Jr. and his wife, Rebecca “Becky;” her grandchildren, Jonathan Jones and his fiancé, Brittany, Ashley Jones Yates and her husband, Kenneth, Jacob Tyndall and his wife, Nicole, and Addison Tyndall; along with her great-grandchildren, Waylon and Bowen Jones and Kaden James Yates, due to be born in February; and her two brothers Shelton White and Calvin White.
The family celebrated the life of their mom and grandmother at a private service at Heritage Funeral Home in Matthews on Friday, Jan. 29, at 2 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Charlotte Rescue Mission or iReachAfrica.
