I have many special memories of Gloria. She was my senior Director in Mary Kay, she recruited me. We're were Sales Directors together for 14 years. We did so much together! We ran meetings together, traveled together, shared hotel rooms together and yes, even shared beds together. My special times with her were when we'd get ready for bed and I would be so cold, I'd put my sweats on and socks and Gloria would climb in bed with me and hug me until I warmed up.... Just like my mom would have done. Too many memories to list. She was a great mother, she loved her girls and her grandkids and she was a good friend. I loved her and I will miss her 😘

Gloria had a smile and a laugh I will never forget! I loved her visits and we would just gab away over coffee! She definitely loved her girls! I had the privilege of her being my director and friend, I was introduced to her by my Aunt Jean Hall, 2 very special ladies! This was almost 20 years ago! When I was pregnant and had my 2nd son, Gloria would visit and he loved being held by her! She teased often through the years that she couldn’t wait for a grand-baby and when lil Mario came she was over the moon!!! He was awnry just like my son lol then with little time her little angel girl and another angel boy were born! Her love and pride for her family was known! I’ll always be grateful for her place she had in my life! Love and my prayers to you all!

Gloria was my senior Mary Kay director. She was an awesome inspiration to the Mary Kay consultants that she touch in her career. She guided me and showed me the Mary Kay way which she lived by daily. I miss your smile and your laugh. Thank you for being a part of my life. God bless you and Heaven has opened its doors for you. Becky

Oh my "Sweet Gloria" as I would call her. Remembering the times we went to the 50th Anniversary conference of Mary Kay in Texas, and the conferences in Denver. How I cherish the memorials and our group photo's together. Gloria not only taught me about what it meant to be a Mary Kay consultant, but how to be a great friend. I will miss my sweet Gloria dearly.

Gloria Puglianos was one of the sweetest women I knew. I remember her always saying absolutely. I remember her Mary Kay room. There was always makeup everywhere. I remember walking down the stairs to help her with her laundry. I remember sitting at the kitchen table while she drank her morning coffee. Rest in peace Gloria! You will be missed by all!

Gloria made such amazing Halloween costumes for my daughter and Isabella. What fun times had. She joined us going to the zoo to trick or treat. Years later I even wore the top part of the pumpkin costume when I needed to dress up 😉

My prayers are with Raeann, Misty and Debbie and their families, especially Gloria’s grandchildren. Blessings!
