Gloria had a special place in my heart and always will. She was such a joy to read to and was so smart at figuring out any mystery. She knew the answers before I did, that's for sure. She always had such kind words to share with me. She will forever be missed but thankfully is now reunited with loved ones and watching over us all with the angels. My heart and sympathy goes out to her family, she loved you all so.

Dear family of Gloria, I'm sure Gloria is missed by all of you I worked with her at North East Bank. She was such a "classy" lady. Always dressed to perfection. I'm sorry she had to leave for her new home. May God bless you all.
Love and Prayers, Rita
