I was so sad when I read in the Tacoma News Tribune this morning about the passing of Gloria. I remember and enjoyed knowing Gloria so much...... from student activities, to Tawankas, to our participation in choir, and to all the other activities we loved so much. Gloria always had a smile on her face and was so nice to everyone. I do remember her beautiful singing voice.

Gloria was not only a friend, but a relative after marrying my cousin. She called once a week to see how our kids, and grandkids were doing.  She always remembered their birthdays, and holidays with a little gift.  She will be missed by all of our family.  She was a wonderful caring, loving person.  Rest in peace dear friend.
