Gloria loved to play cards, gardening, working in her yard, and swimming. Gloria enjoyed crafts of all kinds, like stained glass, quilting, and making greeting cards. She loved traveling with her friends and visiting her children and grandchildren.

She was an open-hearted woman, who shared love with her friends and family and community. No matter what, if you needed Gloria, she was there for you.
Gloria is survived by three children, Carl Sundquist, Carrie Vollrath (Jim), and Mary Gordon (Greg); seven grandchildren, and six great grandchildren.
Gloria is preceded in death by her husband Carl, her son Scott, and many friends.
