    Gloria and I were classmates while attending Graham School of Nursing , and have remained close friends since. We shared so many wonderful memories of being together on our clinical rotations at Cook County Hospital, as well as Peoria State Hospital. I cherished our fun experiences that we shared. I will forever be grateful for our precious memories together! Linda Ehrich Booker, RN

    What a fun lady Gloria was and we always had so much fun with her when she would roll into our little town in her van with Karen and Scout in tow to laugh, dance, play machines of chance on occasion and have a cocktail. We always looked forward to her visit. Out sincere sympathies go out to her wonderful family. Anna Himelrigh and Jerry Kraker

    Gloria was the Aunt that all kids dream of. She was fun, sassy and sweet There was never a problem she could not fix. Christmas Eve was great always but became spectacular when she arrived with UB. I love her unconditionally. Karen, I am so very sorry that I can’t be there for the services. I cannot find the words to express my sorrow for the loss of this wonderful woman who touch so many lives, I think of you and the family with love in my heart and pray she is at peace with her Lord. Shelly & Scott, I pray that you are thinking about all of the good times, the love she had for you and that these memories wash over you when the grieving wants to take over. I love you, I hope to see you at the burial.

    I am so sorry to hear of Gloria’s death. I was in the class behind her at Graham and then after many years of not seeing her we worked side by side at the Clinic. She was fun and a great nurse. She will be missed by a lot of people. I will be out of town and will not be able to attend her visitation nor funeral. Prayers to the family. Sharon Schrodt

    Gloria is such a wonderful person and a good friend. We had a lot of good times (remembering Las Vegas). We know Gloria will be waiting to give us a guided tour on the other side.
