Gloria lived in London Ontario where she owned a successful food store with her husband and family. She took pride in merchandising her shops front windows and loved to share cooking tips with her staff and customers.

Gloria will always be remembered for her boisterous laugh, her hilarious sense of humor and her unbelievable home cooked meals. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as Grandma. She valued family time and loved visits from all of her family members.
