Billy, June and Family,
So sorry to learn of Gloria’s passing. I had gone to Woodlands several times to visit my girlfriends mom. At one of those visits I figured out who Gloria was. We had a great chat about years ago. She sure was a big part of so many of the residents at Woodland. Keep the memories close to your heart.

To the family of Gloria,
Please accept our deepest sympathies in the passing of your wonderful Mother, Gloria. We met Gloria through my Mother, Shirley McLain, at the Woodlands. They were the best of friends, sang duets together, went on walks, and sat at the dining table together . She helped my Mom so much and visa versa. We loved to hear her jokes, and her stories. She was so kind to my Mom and all there at the Woodlands. We will truly miss her.
God Bless you all .
