She was a delightful and very giving person. When I became the new science teacher, she passed on her worksheets and experiments! That made my first year in scinece easier. She also gave me dozens of lovely irises to plant, all labeled with the genus and species!

Gloria was such a beautiful and gracious lady. My neighbor growing up. I loved talking to her and hearing her wonderful laugh. She will be missed greatly. Bless Carl and all the families.
