    I remember meeting her for the 1st time after hanging out With her daughters and being told “Call me Glo.” Glo has been like a mother to me and my friend, always welcomed me into her home. The last thing she told me was thank you for being a friend. I’m glad I was and that she is in the Lords hands now. Truly missed, dearly and loved.

  2. Helen Green-Curry says:

    Gloria was a quite person most of the time, who never had anything bad to say about anybody. She worked hard at Canton Preschool and loved the kids. She was someone you could talk to easily and a friend to all. Prayers for her family, remember all the fond memories Gloria has left you with.

    It’s sad knowing my Grammy is gone . It’s really hard knowing I wasn’t there for her last few years … she was the only grandparent I had a relationship with and I wanted her there for my graduation but she will because she’s gonna always be in my heart ????

    Oh My heart aches….

    As years pass, we age and our lives are directed in other directions. We may reach out less but we hold that place in our hearts belonging to our love one.

    Gloria was a loving God fearing woman who accepted me just as I am into her heart and family.

    With heartfelt love and appreciation I thank her for being a wonderful friend and sister-n-law. I’m so thankful to God I was able to thank her in

    To her family I say….through your tears thank our Heavenly Father for delivering her from the worldly pain. She has her wings now and pain free.

    Love you all.
