This would not tie in with Gladys dying c. 1948, but I wonder...

"...very dear friend of Mr and Mrs F Ockleshaw, and Graham."
"...father of Neil, father-in-law of Gladys."

A Gladys Rourke, with the same birth year as your Gladys, and same parents' christian names as Frederick Ockleshaw, died in WA in 1979.
