Not sure what to say?

My favorite nun and neighbor. Sr. Gloria was my 7th grade teacher when St Vincent's had a terrible fire, which we could see from her classroom. Over the many years that I knew Sister, she was loving, giving, and dedicated to St. Vincent's community. We will miss her and know she is in Heaven, enjoying her eternal rewards. May she rest in peace. Donna Massara Ruth '61

Sr. Gloria was small in stature however, her gift of outreach ministry was immense. She impacted the lives of many in our community and was always there for anyone who asked for assistance. Her work with refugees was her passion and she truly was an inspiration to others. She was always wore a beautiful smile and was compassionate. May Sr. Gloria enjoy her heavenly rewards as she certainly is deserving. With sympathy,

I lived across the street from Saint Vincents kind that and sister Gloria became a wonderful friend and confidant. I was so sad when she retired, and I wish I could have gone to see her one more time. My heart is with all of her friends and her family. I’m sure God will welcome her into heaven with open arms. She is so deserving!

Sister Gloria who was known as Sister Joseph Anthony when I was in her 7th grade class at St Vincent’s and she was by far my favorite nun at the school. She was kind and caring of her students and was loved by all. Mike Collins (class of 1959)

I never knew Sr. Gloria personally. My sister Sr. Marionella always spoke so highly of her and respected all the great work that she did.
RIP Sister.

Sister Gloria was truly the "Mother Teresa" of the Northeast side of Syracuse! She was also a co-founder of Vera House in Syracuse.

To Sister Gloria's Family I am very saddened to hear she has gone HOME to Heaven. I'm a parishioner of Saint Vincent DePaul church. I've known Sister Gloria many years before her retirement. She would be taking picture's at our many events I tried to take over as the photographer. She will be very much missed by me and ALL WHO knew and loved her. My most deepest condolences to her Family. She'll be in my Prayers and will never be Forgotten.
