GLADYS TORDIL- PG County Filipino Teacher
Prince George’s County, Maryland, U.S.A.
Let us pray for the eternal repose of the soul of GLADYS TORDIL, the PG County Filipino Teacher who died of fatal
shooting, Thursday, May 5, 2016. Gladys was gunned down by her own husband Eulalio Tordil at High Point High
School (PG County, Maryland). Gladys was a Chemistry Teacher of Prince Georges County Public School (PGCPS).
She was a victim of domestic violence. She is survived by her two minor daughters who is now in FOSTER CARE after
GLADYS hails from Pikit, South Cotabato, Philippines. She was a High School Class Valedictorian, Notre Dame High
School and a Beauty Pageant winner,Mutya ng Pikit , South Cotabato. She was also an active member /supporter of
the PIKITENOS INTERNATIONAL Midwest East Coast Chapter.
Upon the request of the family (her mother and siblings) of Gladys in the Philippines, the Migrant Heritage Commission
(MHC) , the Metro Washington DC-based service-oriented NGO serving immigrants, will take charge of
repatriating/shipping her remains to the Philippines. This arrangement is also being coordinated with the Philippine
Embassy in Washington .D.C. since the shipment requires proper Philippine government documentation to the
Philippines. The sudden demise of Gladys left her two minor children helpless hence we are appealing for financial
assistance (any amount is appreciated) to help ship her remains and assist the children financially and psychologically
survive this tragedy.
Any amount of donation (be it a dollar or $ 5.00 or $ 10.00 or more) will be more than welcome. Please make checks
payable to MIGRANT HERITAGE COMMISSION (MHC) with memo (Funeral & Repatriation -GLADYS FUND)

MHC on DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
While our community continue to grieve for Gladys tragic death, we must all stand up and act in unity to stop the
epidemic of domestic violence. It hurts people.It injures and breaks the emotional and psychological state of mind of a
person. And it kills. Domestic violence transcends ethnicity.It happens in every nationality. We can contribute to stop
domestic violence by equipping ourselves with knowledge and information on domestic violence,its symptoms and the
traumatic effects that permanently scar the lives of thousands of women and children, if not the ultimate tragedy of
death like what happened to Gladys. MHC strongly urge the community to reach out to people whom they know are
victims or has reason to believe that they are victims of domestic violence and spousal abuse including children. There
is a domestic abuse hotline that you can call, a place for shelter and legal assistance. The most important is to place
them in a safe,secured and caring environment.
The number of women murdered in this country by current husband or former spouse or live in partner nearly doubled
the number of US soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 & 2012(6,r88 troops killed compared to 11,766
murdered women because of domestic violence. Every year, 4.8 million women in the US experience physical violence
by an intimate partner or legal spouse. It is an epidemic not a singular incident. (Rev.Atty Arnedo Valera, Grace Divina
