Gloria graduated from Salmon River Central School in 1987. She worked as a CNA then a QA inspector at MRP. She had a love for the outdoors: camping, motorcycle riding and off-roading in the jeep, but nothing compared to the love of her family. Whether you were her biological, adopted, or stepchild or grandbaby or step grandbabies. She would make it clear she was your family, and she would do anything for you! She was the kind of person who would give you the shirt off her back to make sure you had clothes. She was a bright and shining soul who will be missed by many!
She did not want to have a service as she did not want people to be crying over her. We will be doing graveside service for immediate family but there will be a celebration of life at the home of her son, 111 Stone Road, Constable beginning at 12:00 PM on Saturday, August 12th.
