So sorry to hear of Mrs. Gloria's passing. Growing up in Cypress Gardens to us she was the "Freezy Lady". Fondest memories were on those hot summer days all us kids went to her house for all the cool snacks. $.50 got you the best chocolate freezy cup and $.25 got any other flavor. She was always was so nice and polite. My heart goes out to the family. God Bless!

As long as I can remember Aunt Gloria loved the Juneau sisters as her own sisters;
playing cards Friday nights with "a select group" if you had been lucky enough to get the last minute call to join; Sunday football games with family on her big ass TV Rob had gotten for her ; having no problem calling you "jerk" for saying something stupid; Playing pokeno every other Tuesday for the past 20 years . She was someone that adored her son Rob, daughter in law Thursdy and Grandson Robby and most of all, my gosh she loved my uncle Bobby with everything she had and will dancing with her Tuni in heaven. I will always think of her at our pokeno game.

Gloria Shannon Juneau...Glo.... was special in so many ways. She had so many wonderful attributes that we wish we had, along with that mischievous twinkle she would get in her eyes and her zest for life.
She was kindhearted and generous . She would open her home to someone sick or lonely or that needed a place to stay for awhile. With her home came the most delicious meals you’d ever want to eat. If you’ve eaten her gumbo, her pork roast with rice and gravy and potato salad, her red beans and rice, her mac and cheese (to name a few), then you know what I’m talking about.
She had an open ear to listen to your problems and possessed understanding and spoke kind words that made problems seem not as bad as they really were. Her words even made the problems look solvable.
If you needed a good laugh, she was the one to be around. She loved a good joke. And, She could speak the truth in a way that could make you go from tears to laughter and lots of times even make you laugh at yourself. Glo could ease the hardness of life by just sticking by you and helping you with the next steps to take.
Most importantly, she was a Christian and very forgiving and didn’t continuously hold a grudge. Her love for you outweighed anything you had ever done to her.
She waited on and helped take care of many ill people through the years- her Mom and Dad, her husband, her sister, her brother- while never complaining- aways there.
She will be missed and never forgotten nor could she be replaced. Because she was a Christian and had received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, she is now living in Heaven and I look forward to seeing her again one day.
Through tears I say, “It’s been wonderful knowing you. Goodbye for right now, Sweets, and one day we’ll be together again. “
