  1. My sincere condolences to my nephew and nieces for the passing of your mother. You will always have the memories.

  2. Cynthia and family…..We are sorry to learn that your mother has passed away. It’s never easy to lose a loved one, but we hope you can feel God’s comfort and peace especially at this time.

  3. You have our sympathy. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. Gloria was one of my first customers when I opened my yarn shop-The Stitchery.
    She was a great customer because she was friendly and always positive.
    She also was the last face I saw as I was going under for gall bladder surgery.
    I knew I was in good hands.
    I’m sure she touched many patients.

  5. We first met Gloria in 1973 when working in the Operating Room at Wooster community Hospital. Over the years I enjoyed the countless hours we spent taking care of patients. We always appreciated being guests of Howard and Gloria. She did so many nice things for so many people . We send sincere condolences to her entire family. May she rest in God’s peace.


  6. To Mary and Family: Please accept our sincere sympathy on the passing of your mother. I remember her as a wonderful nurse at Wooster Hospital, and of course we knew her as Mary’s mother. You will be in our thoughts in the days ahead.
