With heavy hearts the family sadly announces the passing of Gloria, on February 19th in her 84th year. Beloved wife of the late Arthur Thornton, loving mother to Richard, Wendy (Marc), and Crystal (Wally). Grandma of Sam (Hailey). Gloria’s furry companion Max will miss her, as well as her many cat and dog grandpets. Dear sister of Tone, George, and Shirley, predeceased Ruby, Pearl, Garnet and Diamond. She will be fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Gloria had a great love for singing and was a proud member of the Sweet Adelines, she worked at St. Mary’s of the Lake, and was so proud to be a Nurse. Although tiny she was mighty and braved thru serious brain surgery, only to be diagnosed at 68 with Parkinson’s Disease, she succumbed to the complications of Parkinson’s.
