Gloria’s passion in life was her children and grandchildren. Gloria was best known for her love of food and could be called by those who love her a food snob. One of her many lines is, “I could cook that better.” Gloria loved to cook for her family and her home was the central meeting place for all to celebrate no matter the occasion.
