    Gloria Jane was one of the kindest, sweetest and funniest people I have ever known. She never meet a person she couldn’t sit down and talk to for hours and when they left, you’d ask her, who they were and she’d answer, “I don’t know.” She had an infectious laugh that would have your cheeks hurting after awhile and if you were talking to her about something serious, she made you feel like you were the only person in the room. She was a very special person and a very special cousin. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. God Bless you all.

    I worked with Gloria and Dr Corder when I first became a nurse. Gloria was such a beautiful lady with a beautiful smile. She loved talking to people and she loved to read books. She was a very sweet lady. Heaven got a very special lady.

    My sweet precious Aunty Glo was my favorite aunt. She always gave such great advice and was so encouraging. She spoke of my Uncle Ron as a wonderful Godly man who was her husband and friend. She spoke of my cousins Jamie and Jeff and her love for them. I know she is in heaven and will be watching out for them. Aunty Glo lived and loved large and will be missed by many😢❤️
