MILLBROOK, AL (WSFA) –
Beatrice Tatum will never forget her mail carrier, but more importantly, her friend Gloria Cleveland. "When I got the call I was devastated. She made my life special by just being sweet and kind," said Tatum.
Cleveland spent her entire postal career, all 20 years and more with the Deatsville post office 7 miles north of Millbrook.
"We called her ‘Glo’ because she was always happy," said postmaster Sherry Worrell.
"She always remembered my birthday and things like that," said Tatum.
Ms. Cleveland died on Cold Springs Road Monday morning. For some reason the mail carrier lost control of her ’98 Ford Explorer and crashed on the other side of the road.
