Gloria May McKillop
May 20, 1929 – November 18, 2020
Gloria May McKillop, 91, of Woodinville, was born in Seattle, Washington to William and Jessie Webb, on May 20, 1929, and died November 18, 2020 at her home. Gloria grew up in West Seattle, with her older sister Lois and her younger brother Bill (William).
After graduating from West Seattle High School in 1948, Gloria went to work for Balfour Guthrie as a secretary, staying there until she met her future husband, Don, on a blind date after Don returned from the Korean War. They fell in love, and on June 5, 1954 were married. Gloria and Don have two children, Mark and Lori. Mom worked as a homemaker, this was her full-time job. In addition to being active in the Richmond Beach Congregational Church, she was also a room mother for Mark and Lori at their elementary school, was a Camp Fire girl leader, drove a carpool, kept an immaculate house and yard while still tending to her own parents and in-laws needs as they grew older. Later, after the family moved to Woodinville, Gloria was active in the clearing of land, and the building process of their dream home. This is the home Gloria wanted to live out her life in, and so she did.
Gloria was always active – she played tennis, was an avid golfer, and as a family, we enjoyed many activities together - vacations, hiking and camping, skiing, and lots of football games - attending Husky games for many seasons, and since 1976 attending Seahawks games as charter season ticket holders. Gloria and Don exemplified what a strong marriage looks like – they were together for 59 years before Donald passed in 2013
Gloria is survived by her son, Mark (Kathy Snyder) and her daughter, Lori (Jeff Hays). There will be no public service due to the COVID pandemic. Interment will be at Floral Hills Cemetery.
