Gloria H. Garwood Obituary
Gloria H. Garwood

Virginia Beach - 90, Our beloved mother went home to be with the Lord May 28, 2014. Gloria or Doe as she was known by friends and family was born in Norfolk, VA to the late George and Edith Harris and spent her entire life in the Tidewater area. She was predeceased by her husband of 67 years Richard (Dick) Garwood as well as her two sisters Mildred Davidson and June Harrawood.

Left to cherish her memory are three children, Bonnie Revell (Jerry), Bryan Garwood (Michele) and Richard Garwood (Deanna) eight grandchildren; two great grandchildren, a brother-in-law along with lots of adoring nieces, nephews and cousins. She and Dick enjoyed spending time with their extended family as well as dancing of all kinds especially Ballroom and Square. They were active members of various local dance clubs for many years. Doe was loved by all who knew her and had a reputation for great affection for both family and friends. She was quick to offer a hug and there was always room for one more at the dinner table. Doe was a source of great love and strength to her family. She always put her husband and family first and will be deeply missed.

A service to celebrate her life will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday May 31 at Beach Funeral Services, 4456 Bonney Rd., Virginia Beach. The family will receive family and friends at the family home after the memorial.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Gentiva Hospice, 5544 Greenwich Road, Suite 202 Virginia Beach, VA 23462.
