Gloria loved gardening, traveling and having her family around her as often as possible. She would go to the end of the world to make children or her grandchildren happy and pleased. Sunday dinners were a favorite of hers when the family could be together.

Though she is gone, GOD chose a very special day of Easter to take her home to be with him. She will be missed.
