Gloria Nicolai Obituary
Nicolai, Gloria Lewis
75, of Phoenix, AZ passed away on October 5, 2015. Gloria was born in Davenport, IA, and spent many years in Hampton, VA before moving to Phoenix 30 years ago. Her circle of friends, near and far, were her inspiration. Her crowning achievement was when she became Grandma Gloria, forever known as "Gigi". Gloria was an accomplished artist: jeweler, beader, painter, seamstress... the list goes on. She loved her children, music, faith, country, and polka dots. She will be deeply missed, but all who witnessed her 7+ year battle with lung cancer can share in her relief and the fact that she is at peace. Gloria is survived by her daughter, Heather Salcius (Matthew), of Orange, CA; son, Jason Nicolai (Kathleen) of Yorktown, VA; grandchildren, Nicholas and Matthew Hensley, Jason, Benjamin and Erin Nicolai; and nephew and niece, Joel and Jocelyn Quirt. Gloria was preceded in death by her father, Dr. H.V. Lewis; mother, Georgia Lewis; and sister Joyce Barnette. No services are planned. A celebration of Gloria's life will be held in the coming months. Donations to the in the name of Gloria Nicolai are welcome.
