She enjoyed crossword puzzles, and Sudoku, and she never missed Jeopardy. She also enjoyed dancing, especially the jitterbug! Most of all Toot treasured time spent with her family.

Gloria was a gem of a person. Always kind and giving. She was blessed with a wonderful family as well. She will be missed by many except her opponents in the quoit pits where she was a fierce competitor, just like her hubby. May God bless you, Gloria, along with your family. RIP.

I didnt know Gloria but I hope she rests in peace. Its obvious in reading about her large family that she was surrounded by love throughout her life here on earth. She sounds like an amazing person. Rest In Peace.
Condolences to her family.

RIP Mom Conrad. Glad I got one picture taken with you. It's not the best picture of me, but I will have a memory to treasure forever. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family at this difficult time. It was truly amazing to have met such a great person. I loved talking with you and getting to know you through all the tournaments we were at together and the time we visited at the house. You have another whole family from the quoit world who will miss you also. We know you are at peace and up there smiling down on all of us. Heaven not only gained a special angel, but I'm sure Pop Conrad was waiting for you with open arms.
