Gloria E. Broome

Gloria E. Broome, 84, went to be with her Lord and Savior on February 28, 2014. She was born in Stark, Florida on August 24, 1929 to James William Malphurs and Genia Mae Dean Malphurs.

After attending Leon High School, Gloria went to work at Centel/Sprint where she worked as a telephone operator until her retirement. She was a dedicated member of Four Square Baptist Church. Gloria was passionate about her writing and flowers, and was known for having a "green thumb". She is best remembered for being a very giving person. She was a "mother" to her entire neighborhood and was always there as a friend ready to help anyone who was in need. She was instrumental in raising three of her grandchildren: John, Erica, and Ashlie Broome.

Gloria was pre-deceased by her husband, Robert L. Broome, Jr.; and her siblings: Joyce Malphurs Kelly, Fredrick Malphurs, C.J. Malphurs, Katharine Malphurs, and Helen Malphurs Arledge.

She is survived by her sons: James (Ann) Jones of Milton, Florida, Robert (Sherri) L. Broome III of Paradise, California, William (Angela) Broome of Tallahassee, Florida, John D. Broome of Tallahassee, Florida; 12 grandchildren and 14 great- grandchildren.
