I was one of Gloria's many student teachers at Pioneer High School. She was an excellent teacher who had a great influence on my career as a Spanish teacher. She embraced not only the Spanish language and literature, but her students as well. They adored her. I am so sad to read of this and so sorry for your loss.

Gloria Calhoun was the teacher all kids should have in their school history. She was tough, loving, funny, encouraging,, etc. etc.

She was a good friend, a compassionate peer, she was the best I have ever seen in my life. The world is better because of Gloria.

I'll miss her!!! Te echo de menos, querida Gloria,

Dearest Cindy and family, my prayers have been with you since your mother's passing. I have never known a more loving and caring person than Gloria. Every time I would see her she had a smile on her face and a kind word to share. She was a blessing to all that knew her. It seems strange that she is not here with us physically, but I truly believe her spirit will always be with us. Rest in peace, beautiful Gloria. We love you, Brenda McKinney

Aunt Gloria will be sorely missed. Her energy and sense of humor kept us going when we most needed it. She was so much fun and we shared family stories every time we were together and laughed so much! She hosted my husband Colin when we first moved to Michigan, and she was a loving and caring Great-Aunt to my children. Thank you, Aunt Gloria! You will not be forgotten!

Our heartfelt condolences to you Cindy, Preston and your entire family on the loss of your Mom, Gloria. I remember meeting Gloria years ago, and each time we went to your home, Gloria radiated a kind, gentle and loving spirit. She was certainly a gentle soul, and I know she left this world from the hands of her loving family with joy, into the loving presence of the Lord.
May you and your family find comfort from the healing hand of God during this difficult time. Keeping each of you and your family in our prayers. Frank, Terri & Stephen

Gloria was not just one of my favorite alumna of Siena Heights but was, quite literally, one of my favorite people when I worked there as the Alumni Director. She had such a smart wit about her and was so welcoming and gracious. She was a truly adorable person who loved life and loved people. I thought the world of Gloria. Much love and prayers to her family during this time.

What a beautiful picture of your mother. The last time I saw her she was still just as beautiful as in this picture. I remember her as one of the kindest people I have ever known. When I would come to your house, her wonderful smile and gentle nature always made me feel welcome. How fortunate you and Chuck were to have such loving and kind parents. My sincere sympathy to you and your family.

Cindy,
I always enjoyed spending time with your mother after she retired. She was so much fun and full of life. And the stories she could tell about you! I know that her passing will be a big void in your life. You took such good care of her and I never heard you complain. You are a wonderful daughter and are to be admired. May you and your family find peace during this difficult time.
