Salem - Gloria Walker passed away peacefully on August 4th following several months of declining health.

Born to Francis and Anna Kuensting in Hubbard, OR, Gloria was the youngest of seven brothers and sisters. She moved to Salem in 1948 taking a job at Classic Photo to pursue her interests in photography. Gloria met a young grocer, Harold L. Walker, in 1950 and they were married the following year on July 3, 1951. The young couple had three children between 1952 and 1955 keeping Gloria busy as a homemaker for many years. As the children got older, she worked several years for a grocery brokerage and later became a Welcome Wagon Hostess in South Salem from 1976 to 1980. Gloria was an avid bowler and enjoyed cooking and gardening.

Gloria is preceded in death by her six brothers and sisters and by her loving husband Harold who passed away in 2012. Survivors include sons David and wife Janet of Tillamook, OR, Timothy of Upland, CA, and daughter Terri and husband Dan of Largo, FL, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Private memorial services took place on Friday, August 10th at Belcrest Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation (OLSHF.ORG).
