Gloria was a loving Grammy to her grandchildren Jimmie, Kenzie, Hailey Rose, Thomas and Matthew.
Gloria was the life of the party. She had a contagious laugh that no matter how you felt once you heard her laugh you would join in. She had an amazing childhood in Newark growing up and spoke of it often. Her times living in Madison where she and Frankie raised their sons were the most memorable.
Gloria had a love of music especially Elvis and Pavarotti. She enjoyed her trips to Atlantic City with her husband and friends. Gloria had a love of ice cream if she could eat it 24 hours a day she would. She was so caring and loving that you didn't leave her home or anywhere that you were in her presence without a hug and an I Love You!! All those that she touched are better people because of her. She will be missed but will have a special place in all the hearts of her family and friends.
