I absolutely loved caring for Gloria! Her sense of humor was the best! Dry whit who can’t love that.. she’d often teach me old school nursing ways. Her love for wine and cheese days I’ll never forgot! She knew I wasn’t a wine fan, she’d always tell me to bring a beer. I’d reply with I can’t drink at work, she’d reply with sure you can I won’t tell... lol wonderful lady!! Prayers sent to her family!

Gloria was one of my mentors as a young nurse.  I truly learned so very much from her as a nurse and as a person.  She was respected and loved by patients, doctors and staff.  She was a blessing and I feel fortunate to have known her.

Gloria was one of the best nurses that Monmouth Hospital ever had and working with her was an honor. I have benefited from her experience, knowledge and kindness and I have passed on her advice many times, but I could never match her wisdom and in my eyes she was truly one of a kind.

I am sorry for your loss..  Gloria and I worked at Monmouth community hospital at the same time. I certainly respected her nursing skill and care for the patient.  Do you have our sympathy.

Gloria was in my class in high school and in our quilting group. I have many fond memories of our afternoon quilting sessions. So sorry for your loss.
