Gloria Irene Delong had a kind adventurous and fun loving spirit. It was important to her to travel and understand and share perspectives about the world. She experienced life to its fullest and in addition to being a loving mother, grandmother, wife, friend, and teacher, she was a scuba diver, pole vaulter, fisher woman, skier, sailor, tennis player, and avid golfer. She was beautiful inside and out, and had class. She loved music and had a special place in her heart for the Three Tenors, and Bocelli. She loved people and enjoyed good conversation over a glass of wine and a fine meal. Gloria was a fighter and was feisty, strong, determined, and courageous but passed unexpectedly Sunday 11/24/2019, nearly recovering from a recent surgery. Gloria will be missed by her 3 children, Mike, Krista, and Kim, their spouses Therese, Mike, and Jeff, her 6 Grandchildren Kyra, Haley, Dylan, Emma, Austin, and Liam and her many lifelong and new friends.
The family will be hosting a celebration of life for Gloria in 2020.
