Our sincere sympathy. Seeing her all those Sundays at the Marian Home Mass made her feel like family. I admire how close and caring her kids were.

I remember going to visit the Marion Home to see my dad Jack. They were next door neighbors and Gloria was always so sweet! Kathy and I have some great memories from there. So sorry for your loss, such a great family !! Thoughts and Prayers, Karen Engler Jensen

It was my great honor to care for you these last 2 years. I will cherish the memories of you telling me I was beautiful and your loving hugs and stroking my face as I would kiss you good night and tuck you in. You're beauty and poise will ALWAYS live within me Glo. May you rest in eternal peace.

I loved Gloria, her wonderful sense of humor and her great laugh. She was a marvelous friend to mom and to the community as a whole. I am so sorry for her passing.

Jeanne Bird on Oct 23, 2019

Where to begin talking about Glo? She was such a ray of sunshine in my life, especially during one of the toughest times of my life...the loss of my husband, Michael. She was such an example of how to live your life with the good Lord as your guide. I can still hear her laughter in my heart, which is where she will live forever.

Gary and Judy Schumacher on Oct 23, 2019

Our hearts are aching for each of you...she was a wonderful friend to us all and we shall always remember her and her beautiful smile. Our sympathies and prayers to each of you and may the perpetual light always shine brightly on your Mom
