November 8th 1950 – April 18th 2013
With great sadness, we announce that Gloria has gone to join her creator after a long battle with HCV and liver cancer. She joins husband Dave (Adams, 2010), brothers Lou (2011) and Rob (2012). She leaves behind son Shon (Garraway), parents Nan and Harold, brothers Ken and Don and many loved nieces and nephews. Her final days were spent surrounded by many loved ones at her side including sister (in law) Debbie, niece Chrissey and Aunts Dianne and Shirley.
Gloria worked as a self employed bookkeeper for many years, working with several well known Valley businesses as well as many entrepreneurs. Gloria was eternally grateful for the 27 years of sobriety she celebrated with the local A.A. community and was also a vigilant advocate for HCV awareness, sharing her experiences during treatment with a growing global community of Hep C warriors.
A Celebration of Life potluck for Gloria will be held on Sunday April 28th at the Native Sons hall from 12 pm to 3pm. In leiu of flowers, please make donations to the Canadian Liver Foundation.
