She was a devoted mother and cherished time spent with her family. Her unconditional love will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

To cherish her memory, she leaves her husband: William; two sons: Ken and his wife Nancy; Keith and his wife Debbie; three grandchildren: Ashley, Caitlin and her husband Aaron, and Garrett and his wife Livia; as well as a treasured great-grandson: Oliver.

Condolences to the Family

June 14, 2021

So sad to hear of sweet Gloria’s passing, I sure will miss our phone calls and the sharing of the memories she and Bill created together as volunteers at LRMC (St. Joe’s). Myself and all the volunteers were so sad when they retired from their positions.  We spoke fairly often since I moved to Florida and I enjoyed every call and I can still hear the”Giggle” that only she could do. My deepesst sympathy to Bill and her loving family. No doubt in my mind that Heavenly Gates opened wide to receive the wonderful woman.
