Gloria was a lifetime member of the Reno Christian Church where she served as church treasurer for many years. She enjoyed discussing current events and politics when she was well. She took a real interest in school politics. She loved animals and wanted to save them all. She was a fine soprano in her younger years.

Gloria never had the honor of experiencing motherhood, but took great pride in mothering her nieces and nephews. As a teenager, she worked at Crystal Dairy. She worked her entire adult life as a bookkeeper at Marietta Concrete, RAAMP Corp. and other local businesses. She would like you to know that she “loved being a part of the human race for as long as I was.”
