She was born in Indianapolis the daughter of the late Floyd and Bonnie (Johnson) Oberting. She graduated from Thomas Carr High School with the class of 1952. She had modeled for L.S. Ayres Department Store in her earlier years and had worked for the Singer Sewing Machine Company. She spent her life making a loving home and devoting herself to her family. She found great joy in Birthday and Holiday celebrations making them all a family affair and going above and beyond to make them special, and food was always involved. She believed in making “Every day like Sunday”. She enjoyed attending her children and grandchildren’s sporting events, never missing an opportunity to cheer them on as only she could do. She found great joy in helping “raise” her grandchildren as she believed it “took a village” to keep her “Tribe” close. She took pride in her home to make it a welcoming and loving place for all to come and talk, celebrate, laugh and sometimes cry, always being there with her advice and a hug. Her love for her flower gardens and yard were evident, as she took great care to bring as much beauty for others to enjoy as well. Her life was her family, her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and always making life amazing for them. She is preceded in death by her son, Nicholas Horning.

My heart and soul go out the entire Horning family. Gloria will be missed by so many and was loved by so many. It seems like yesterday we were all walking to school at Holy Spirit, partying together, celebrating marriages, births of children and all the trials and tribulations that go along with life. Burbank Road was the place to be in my opinion. I feel so grateful to have known your entire family what a blessing you all are to all of us. Hold on to the memories. I know you all believe in signs as I can attest to seeing them on a daily basis with our loved ones that have passed. They are never far from us. He will raise her up!

I just love you all so much!

Michelle, I am so sorry for your loss! I always remember your mom being your biggest supporter, and always so elegant and inviting to all of your friends. She was truly an amazing woman, I fondly remember the year we all had season theatre tickets and went out to eat together. You and your entire family are in my prayers.
