    Gloria was a Beautiful soul, and a Good friend. I remember when we first met, She was shy I was also shy. It was in Jr high school (Everett Jr. High) we clicked right away. We had so much fun, walking home from school. Those were simpler times, and I wish I could get them back. I will miss Gloria dearly, may she rest in peace… Heaven has a new angel.

  11. I am so saddened to hear of Gloria’s passing. I worked with Gloria for over 10 years. You couldn’t ask for a more upbeat, caring person in her quiet way. She will be sorely missed. I pray for her family .
