Gloria May Stobart beloved mother of William, John and David Stobart and wife of John Elmer Stobart who died November 2003, has passed away July 18, 2014, aged 89 years. Gloria was born in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan on February 28, 1925. She and Jack were married in 1948 after both graduated from the University of Saskatoon, she with Bachelor Degrees in Arts and Commerce. They lived a wonderful life following Jack's career around the world as a Geological Engineer. They lived most of the 50's in Trinidad & Tobago, the early 60's in Bolivia and Louisiana, the late 60's in Calgary and early 70's in London, UK, before settling down for good in Calgary. Jack and Gloria enjoyed many cultural and musical activities and enjoyed world wide travel up until Jack passed away in 2003. They raised 3 sons who have all had professional careers and themselves raised 10 grandchildren. Gloria was involved in several charitable organisations. She cherished the friendships acquired in these activities and travels around the globe. Gloria is survived by her sons Willy of Perth, Australia, John of Geneva, Switzerland and Dave of North Vancouver. Her brother Bill Link of Berkeley, California also survives her. As per Gloria's and Jack's wishes, a simple cremation will be conducted with no service or reception. To all who knew Gloria, please have a personal remembrance for a very special person whom I know you will remember always. Special thanks to Heather Fast, Teen Fuller, and the wonderful staff at the Beverley Centre, Glenmore who cared for Gloria in her final years.
