Gloria was such an inspiration to me. As a relatively young widow, she continued to live a full live and sought out many travel adventures. I knew her as a volunteer at Franciscan Healthcare and appreciated her gentle spirit and kindness. Because of Gloria's recommendation, we traveled twice with Country Walkers. And her many handwritten notes inspired me to do the same to acknowledge the good work of others. Well done, Gloria, at making the most out of your time in this world.

"Mama Glo," as I always called her, took me into her heart and home when the Kuesels moved into our neighborhood when Pat and I were 12. She quickly became like a second mother to me, and at the end of each school day, I would look forward to retreating to the calm, quiet, orderly, beautiful environment she created for her family. She was a reliable, gentle, generous person who gave freely of herself but who never called attention to herself. She didn't even want an obituary published, but her praises deserve to be sung. Everything she did was done with care, excellence, and grace. The meals she cooked would rival any internationally known chef's creations for their deliciousness in both taste and presentation. She loved nature and gardening and kindly supported the neighborhood wildlife, as well as domestic animals, with her tender loving care and later with her volunteer work for the humane society. She enjoyed art, theater, music, and supported them with her donations, purchases, and applause. She was an inspiration and adventurer, remaking her life after her husband's early death, by becoming involved in aerobic dance and traveling widely, both on foot and on bicycle, with groups of other intrepid female travelers in their 50's and beyond. Gloria was one of the gentlest, most unassuming people you could ever meet, and she left her mark on those of us who took the time to know her and who had the great good fortune of calling her our friend. Even though we didn't have a lot of contact after she moved from the old neighborhood, she was always a stable and reliable presence. I will miss knowing she is there, and I wish for her more joyful adventurers wherever she may roam now. I send my condolences, love, and gratitude to her family--Pat, Bill, Colette, and Colin--for including me as part of the family all these years. May our memories of "Mama Glo" and "Grandma Gloria" always make us smile in fond remembrance and show us the way to be as good, humble, decent, dedicated, and kind as she was. Thank you, especially, dear Pat, for the many hours of time and the patient, loving care you gave your mom in her later years. Like your mother, you are an unsung hero whose loving dedication deserves recognition and appreciation. Job WELL DONE, Sister! <3 XXOOXXOO from Sissy Becky in California <3
