Our mom passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 19, 2013, at the age of 68, after a long battle with lymphoma. Gloria loved being outdoors, golfing, hiking, and planting flowers. She was extremely devoted to her family and friends. She was always upbeat and had the most positive outlook on life. She was a stranger to no-one and had a heart of gold. She will forever remain in our hearts and we will miss her beautiful smile. She is preceded in death by her husband, Robert St. Germain; and sister, Sally Flores. She is survived by her mother, Toni Chavez: her children, Tina Kunkel, Will Kandarian and his wife Brandi, Mike Kandarian and his wife Denise, Art Mendoza and his wife Elisa; brothers, David and Mike Chavez; son-in-law, Nick Kunkel; grandchildren, Ashley Dacanay and her husband Louie, Weston, Wade, Cassie, Stephanie and Dylan Kandarian, Brian Gaynor Jr. and Shawn Kunkel; greatgrandchildren, Noah, Shawn Jr., Andrew and Eric; and a great-granddaughter on the way. A Service will be held at Saint John's Cathedral, 2814 Mariposa St., Fresno, Ca 93721 on Wednesday, May 29, 2013, at 10:30 a.m.
