My sincere sympathies are going out to Gloria's family.  She was a lovely lady that I was privileged to know through Church Women United of the Tonawandas.  All of the members of CWU were devestated that we were unable to attend her services as our May Friendship Breakfast Celebration took place the day of her services.  She was a real asset to our organization as she remembered things we did or didn't do over the years as she was a long-time member.  She will be greatly missed by all of us.  She certainly had an interesting life as we found out from her obituary.  It didn't suprise us as she was an extremely intellectual person.  I  am sure her family will have many memories to sustain them during their time of grief.  I will continue to pray for Gloria and her family.
