Gladys Cruz is a minor character in the first season.
Nothing is known about Gladys before the apocalypse.
Gladys has her ninth birthday party on the day of the events shown in "So Close, Yet So Far".
We see the Cruz family on the front lawn of their house after the Clark family get back from the Sale house where they've left Matt. Joanna calls across and invites them all to her daughter's birthday party, and mentions that many have cancelled due to the illness that is going around.
That night Alicia sees Peter Dawson attacking her mother Joanna Cruz. Joanna appears to flee inside the house, where Gladys and her father are currently living in. Its most likely that they were bit and later reanimated.
The Cruz family dog flees to the Clark house, covered with blood, which had possibly come from one of the Cruz members. Its assumed that once they reanimated, they were shot by The Militia after The Army Went Through the Neighborhood.
