Gloria was a special Lady I met years ago mostly through golfing. I’ll always remember her laugh. I know how much she loved square dancing too.
Prayers for her Family

Though we are far away from one another, I wish for you all to know I am very sorry for your loss. And though time has surely passed since I have seen Aunt Gloria, I must say she was always a very glorious!!!😉
Special lady! I always admired her energy and zest for life. My memory was her contagious laughter. God rest her soul. Hopefully her and Dad will meet in Heaven!!!!! And laugh once again together!!

Gloria was one the happiest and most kind people I ever knew. She was always smiling and happy and never said anything unkind about anyone. She was a special person and knew how to live life to the fullest. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I know she is no longer suffering and is in a better place but her passing leaves a big void for her family and loved ones. We will truly miss you Gloria. Well done thy good and faithful servant.
