Gloria Jean Gamba

1945 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Gloria Jean Gamba

June 3, 1945 ~ July 12, 2014

Gloria was born in Seattle to parents Bjarne and Gladys Bergesen. She grew up in Burien and graduated from Glacier High School. On September 10, 1966 she married Anthony Gamba and settled down in Renton, where they've lived the past four decades. Gloria loved spending time with family and friends, and found joy in hosting many gatherings and cooking exceptional meals for those she cared about.

She worked for the Rainier Brewery from 1965 to 1986, followed by short stints with the Seattle Police Officers Guild and Stroh's Brewery. In 1992, she was hired on with the City of Renton and spent the second half of her career there until retiring in 2010.

Gloria leaves behind an adoring family that includes her husband Anthony, her sons Marc and Steven, daughter-in-law Angela, grandchildren Abigail and Anthony, and brother Bergy Bergesen. She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Marian Puariea.

Please join us for a Celebration of Life service on Tuesday, July 29th from 4-7PM at the Renton Community Center, 1715 SE Maple Valley Highway, Renton, WA.
