I played bridge with Gloria for many years. She was an excellent bridge player and I could seldom sneak things past her!

She was so proud of and loved her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. She was so proud of what you'd all accomplished and what great people you are and she was always so happy to see more babies added to the family.

I had many interesting chats with her when I drove her home in recent times to the Williamsburg after bridge. She spoke her mind about politics and current events yet she was a total class act when it came to discussing them. I found her so well-read and open-minded. She was an inspiration to me and I hope I'm half the woman she was when I get to her age.

I will miss Gloria dearly and I want you to know she touched so many people with her life.
