Bishop - Mrs. Gloria Herndon Maxey, 66, of Bishop, went home to be with the Lord on September 8, 2011. She was born on January 10, 1945 in Athens. She graduated from Athens High School in 1963 and on November 23 of that same year, Gloria married Henry Maxey of Oconee County. They made their home in Bishop where they raised three children. Mrs. Maxey was a member of Church of the Nations. Gloria was a devoted wife and mother who enjoyed writing poetry, traveling to the Great Smoky Mountains, and her affiliation with the Athens High School Alumni Association. Also known as Dodie by her eight grandchildren, nothing gave her greater joy than loving and spoiling each of them.
