Obituary of Gloria Jean Arrayet
Gloria Jean Arrayet “Mimi”passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on May 7, 2022. She was 81 years old. Gloria was born on October 1, 1940 at her grandparents’ home in Vernal Utah. Gloria graduated from Kremmling High School in 1959 and attended Airline College in Los Angeles for a short time before returning home. She met Louis Arrayet while working in Craig Colorado and they married on February 4, 1965. They bought their ranch in Fruita Colorado where they ran a successful sheep ranch for many years. Gloria worked as a Pediatric Secretary at St. Mary’s Life Center for 29 years before retiring in 2013. She always had candy in her drawer for the children that came to the Life Center – her job and friends at her workplace brought her much happiness. Gloria was loved by all who met her. She loved dancing especially the Jitterbug, playing Pinochle and other games, red roses, and her family. She was a giver with a generous heart and had a story for every occasion. Gloria loved the finer things in life, especially her jewelry. She was the “movie star” mom who wore scarves, big sunglasses and a bouffant hairdo – she was the Elizabeth Taylor of the family. Gloria is preceded in death by her husband, Louis Arrayet, her parents Wilson and Lola Stoner and her son-in-law Tony Brach, Jr. She is survived by her daughters Odette (Arrayet) Brach and Mary Arrayet, her sisters - Lillian Etcheverry, Janesse Inda, and Janette Goizueta, her grandchildren, great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Services will be held at Victory Life Church at 2066 Highway 6 & 50 at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, May 20, 2022. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.callahan-edfast.com for the Arrayet family.
