    I am so sad to hear of Gloria’s passing. Though we haven’t seen each other in years, I remember all the good times we had at Uncle Tommy and Aunt Nora’s house in Oswego during the holidays when I was young. Seems like so long ago.

    We will pray for God’s comfort and peace to Gloria’s entire family during this time of sorrow.

    I worked with Gloria at Sutter Hospital when we were both in college. She was extremely kind and helpful and a very good trainer –I remember when she first started teaching at the Sawyer School and how happy she was in her relationship with Dennis. Sincere condolences to all of her family.
