Frances Gloria Walter Obituary
Frances Gloria Walter passed away at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, CA surrounded by her loving family on December 7, 2010. Frances was born in Santa Maria on January 31, 1934 to Frances and Luis Carranza. She was raised and attended school in Venice, California and lived her adult life in Southern California. During her work career she was employed at St. John's Hospital, UCLA Hospital, and retired from the Santa Monica Fire Department as their office manager. She married Emile Walter in 1961 until his death in 1982. She is survived by her four children, David, Marci, Mark and Steve; seven grandchildren, Dominique, Victoria, Sophia, Brandon Aidan, Lilli and Tyler; and four great grandchildren, Mariana, Juan Jr., Evelyn and Javier. She also leaves four sisters, Marylou, Consuelo, Alicia and Christine; as well as many great nieces and nephews. Frances Gloria Walter loved life, her family, making new friends, music, and dancing. For the past sixteen months, Gloria has fought a courageous battle against brain cancer. Her bravery, optimism, love of her family and unfailing faith in God were an inspiration to all who knew her. It is with grieving hearts we say goodbye to our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt. She was a bright light in our lives and lit up any room with her smile. She will be in our thoughts and prayers forever. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Jude Hospital for Children at 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105, (800) 822-6344 (www.stjude.org).
