Martha Gloria Kicklighter Warren - DUBLIN, OH - Martha Gloria Kicklighter Warren of Dublin, Ohio passed away peacefully at her home at the age of 90 on June 13, 2014. Gloria was the daughter of Martha Downer and E. Clyde Kicklighter of Savannah, Georgia. Gloria was preceded in death by her husband, James Vaughn Warren, M.D. Gloria received her B.S. degree from the University of Georgia in 1946 and then pursued her dietary internship at the Medical College of Virginia. She served as Therapeutic Dietician at University Hospital in Augusta, Georgia from 1947 to 1949, Charity Hospital in New Orleans from 1949 to 1951, and Duke Hospital in Durham, North Carolina from 1951 to 1955, where she ultimately served as the Chief of Therapeutic Dietetics. Her scholastic fraternities included Phi Kappa Phi and Phi Upsilon Omicron. During her time at Duke, she met her future husband, the love of her life, Dr. Warren. After their time in Durham, Gloria and Dr. Warren relocated to Galveston, Texas where Dr. Warren served as the Professor and Chairman of the Department of Medicine before returning to Ohio, serving in the same capacity at the Ohio State University from 1961 to 1979 and continuing as Professor of Medicine until 1986. As stalwart supporter of her husband's work in the field of cardiovascular health, Gloria's expertise in nutrition led her to co-author with Evelyn S. Stead one of the first low fat cookbooks, Low-Fat Cookery, published in 1956, and Cooking for Health with Mazola Corn Oil in 1959. Professionally, she was a member of the Columbus and American Dietetic Associations and the American Heart Association. She remained active as a University of Georgia Alumni, member of the UDC Dixie Chapter of Columbus, and the Junior League of Columbus. Gloria and Jim were passionate about their life's pursuits in medicine as well as their love for travel, photography, and the arts. During their travels, they had the opportunity to explore far-reaching places as Tibet, Africa, Russia, the Galapagos and China. Gloria's appreciation of the arts led her to become a founding member of the Women's Association of the Columbus Museum of Art and one of its original docents. Gloria's gracious acts of philanthropy led to many donations to the museum over the years. She also enjoyed participating in her local book club, weaving, gardening, playing bridge, photographing nature, and socializing with her many life-long friends. Gloria was preceded in death by her brothers, the late Col. Edward Clyde Kicklighter of Alexandria, Virginia and Grady Downer Kicklighter of Newnan, Georgia as well as her sister Martha Kicklighter Smith of Wilmington, Delaware. She is survived by her beloved nieces and nephews, Dr. Martha K. Walker of Jacksonville, Florida; Judith A. Kicklighter of Atlanta, Georgia; USN (ret) Paul A. Kicklighter of Manassas, Virginia; Dr. Stephen D. Kicklighter of Raleigh, North Carolina; John and Tom Kicklighter of Annapolis, Maryland; and David Smith of Wilmington, Delaware. Gloria will be remembered and cherished by her family and friends as always full of life, love, and compassion for those fortunate enough to have known her. The family expresses gratitude for the love and devotion of Home Instead Senior Care.
