    A truly lovely lady; I worked with her at the Registrar and we had many lunches out with the ladies. I remember fondly a George Strait concert at the State Fair with she and the ladies. My husband called her the prophet because she said some day I would marry a widowed with children and I did. Such a carrying tender person. She will be .missed. My sympathy to Jerry and Sherri i and the Grands. Your Mom touched a lot of lives. Rest in peace Gloria

    Glow was our neighbor here in Bloomington Indiana for a few years. She always had a smile in a friendly way from the front porch whenever we would see her. Jerry and family, we are sincerely sorry for your loss.
