Gloria R Gonzales was born June 15, 1933, in San Diego, CA. She eventually moved to Los Angeles and worked 35 successful years for Angelica Hospital Linen Services. Although she maintained a limited formal education, Gloria possessed an undaunted work ethic. As most do, Gloria started at the bottom of Angelica’s work force, manually feeding laundry machines and operating tunnel dryers. With determination and perseverance, Gloria earned a promotion as Angelica’s Regional Hospital Linen Supervisor, managing and servicing hospitals throughout the United States. She later earned the distinction as Angelica’s Specialist for Surgical Linen Packs. Subsequent to her retirement in 1996, Gloria moved back to San Diego to live out the rest of her golden days surrounded by family. Although widowed at a very young age, Gloria raised three children and was a mother and father to everyone in her universe. She loved cooking for her family, singing out-loud, and dancing with any nephew brave enough to sit by the dance floor. Although she maintained a classy demeanor, she had no problem expressing her opinion, oftentimes followed by “Ask me if I care?” Gloria was a transcendent woman who enjoyed fishing, camping, and travelling, especially to Porto Nuevo in Baja Mexico. Gloria is survived by her sons Raul and George, her daughter Nellie (aka her Huerinche), her son-in-law Danny, six grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren, and six great-great grandchildren. Her legacy is that of a strong woman, responsible for laying a foundation of love, gratitude, and respect we all build on today. Thank you for the memories and early morning `witos.
