Gloria’s undaunting faith in God and her precious angels were the strength that carried her through her most difficult journey. This journey was made with compassion and support from the help and kindness of the Continuing and Home Care Workers, Nurses and Dr. Steven DeRoche.
Community minded, Gloria was always eager to lend a helping hand. Along with her husband Claude, Gloria spent countless hours preparing meals for seniors at the New Horizon Senior Centre. She was a member of St. Joseph’s C.W.L., Petit de Grat. Gloria will always be remembered for her boundless energy while driving, camping, travelling, socializing and hosting a houseful of people.
Gloria will be remembered for her loving smile, laughter, dancing and singing. Always sewing, knitting, and baking, there wasn’t anything that she couldn’t do. Gloria, as reflected in her name, had a striking beauty and splendor that evoked feelings of delighted admiration. Her greatest gift to all was her love and compassion for her grandchildren and family.
