I really remember Gloria from the telephone company days . As I worked there during high school and after actually 33 years . Remember her during those early years and my mom Louelle Sadler worked right with her for many years. She made her journey and at peace now for all her hard work . May you find peace and comfort at this time. Glenda Sumner

Ms. Broome was one on the sweetest ladies on earth. When our boys were growing up my oldest son was there as much as he was at home. She was the one that would take in kids,
feed them and talk to them when nobody else would.....She was so loved by many and she will be missed but she now has her rewards in Heaven for the hard work she did here on this earth. Love you Ms. Broome! Shirley Curles
