Gloria was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many callings and enjoyed everyone, but she truly enjoyed being the compassionate service leader. She loved serving others in any way she could. Gloria loved fishing, camping, painting beautiful pictures of the outdoors, putting together puzzles, long drives in the fall through the canyon to enjoy the scenery, and most of all she loved spending time with her family. She leaves behind many wonderful memories and traditions that we will all continue to carry on in our hearts. Roses are Red, Violets are Blue and I love you to the moon and back forever and always!!! Until we meet again.
