Born in Williamstown on January 11, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Earl George and the former Mildred Goodell. She was educated in Williamstown Schools, but spent her senior year at Drury High School, where she graduated in 1941.

Gloria worked at England brothers in Allendale and retired after fourteen years of service. She spent her retired years doing art work, sewing, banking and reading. She had many friends and wonderful neighbors she could call on for help.



Gloria and Al joined the Cheshire Senior Club in 1988. She was asked to be the secretary that day and has held that office since.

Gloria was a great friend to my parents Clifford and Eleanor Morin. Her husband was also a great friend to my family. Gloria had a bubbly personality. My condolences to her family.
