Our sincere condolences to Jamie, Cyndi, Kaitlyn and Nathan for the loss of this lovely lady. Gloria was a sweet lady and we feel blessed to have met her the several times we visited you in Texas. This wonderful video showed she lived a full and blessed life. She had compassion and showed her great love for her family and Catholic faith. Her passing reminds us to look forward to the blessing of eternity. This life, like the butterfly in the video ...is for just a moment. The beauty of a funeral forces us to 'step out of our busy lives' and reflect on what is most important ... our eternal lives.

Love & Peace,
Diane

My husband and I so enjoyed having Gloria as a neighbor in Highland Village. She was such a character! We still tell stories about some of the things Gloria did when she lived across the street(like the time she called to tell me she was worried about the man sitting in a neighbor's flower bed on a hot day....I couldn't see the man, so she told me she was going to take him a coke. She called back to tell me he wouldn't accept the coke because "he" turned out to be a big leaf.) She truly cared for other people, and she was so proud of each member of her family. We are sorry for your loss and pray that your many memories bring you some comfort. (We will not be attending her services due to COVID.)

Gloria and Lalo are the best Godparents a person could ever ask for! Their home in Pearland was the “go to” home whenever I (and Dad) needed a place to stay when taking a flight out of Houston. Every time I would stay over, she would always show me something “new” that was added to the house. When our sons were born, she extended her Godmother duties to them, and offered a shoulder to cry on when my in-laws passed away.

God bless you Gloria for being my Godmother.🙏❤️

This is Craig and Delma (Villalobos) Peterson. Delma and I are sad to hear about the death, and passing away, of Aunt Gloria.

Gloria was a sister of Delma's father.

We hope and pray that all of the family will have peace and comfort through this week and all services.

We hope and pray that we will learn how to take our experiences and understand how God can do His Will in our lives.

We are sorry that we cannot attend services, but want you to know we love you all.
