Gloria Jean Thorp Obituary
went to be with the Lord in heaven on Saturday, February 19, 2011. Gloria was born on October 17, 1923 in Santa Monica, CA. She and her only sister, Gladys Jane, grew up in Santa Monica and graduated from Santa Monica High School. Gloria married William Thorp in 1948. She retired from Hughes Aircraft in El Segundo in 1988. She started working for Costco in Hawthorne in 1989 as a demo worker and retired in 2009. She was also a member of Wesleyan Church in Lawndale. Gloria will be most remembered for her warm smile, her generous hugs, her rum balls, homemade pins for every occasion, handmade photo albums and homemade cookies, all of which she so happily gave to those she loved. She loved watching tennis and figure skating on television. She is survived by her children, Joyce, Mary, Richard and Randy; 14 grandchildren; and many great grandchildren. She is now with those she so dearly loved and lost: her parents, Thomas and Gladys Syester; her twin sister, Gladys Jane; her infant son, Terry; and her grandparents that so lovingly raised her after her mother was taken from her when she was just a small child. We will celebrate her life on Sunday, February 27, 2011 at 1 pm at Wesleyan Church, 4455 W. 168th St, Lawndale. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
