Gloria was a beautiful spirited soul who will be dearly missed by all of her family, friends, parish, and community. I will never forget her teaching me how to PROPERLY steam cabbage for cabbage rolls at a bee for the fowl supper shortly after I moved to Coronach. I told her we could save all this work and just use sour cabbage and I got the most SOUR LOOK I’ve ever seen from her. Please accept my prayers for your peace as you move forward with your lives without your beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, auntie, and friend.. All my love, Shanon.
