    Gloria was a neighbour of my parents,
    George and Patricia Chamberlain, when she was living on Greenboro Cr. and a very good friend too.Because of my parents, I too had the privelege of knowing Gloria. I have this image of her in her sneakers , shorts and windbreaker with free weights in her hands and headphones on her ears doing her daily power walking around the neighbourhood. She’d stop by at my parents place most days , just to say hi , with that beautiful smile of hers.She’d invite them over for a cool drink in her lovely garden in the summer , and in the winter to watch the hockey games. Gloria was an excellent seamstress and did many alterations for my Mom and me both, all to perfection, and again with that beautiful smile.A true lady, elegant in her personal style and a warm, caring personality.My Mom’ always called her Glory-Bee , which she seemed to truly relish.

    My sincerest condolences to the family.We will miss her.

    I am the daughter of Patricia Chamberlain, Gloria’s very close friend and Greenboro neighbour. My mother wants you all to know how much she misses her dearest friend Glory ‘B’ ; her Tim Horton’s buddy, her seamstress, her neighbour, her smile and her kindness and never ending ray of sunshine.
    I too will miss our hockey banter as she would tease me about my cheering for the Montreal Canadiens and I teasing her about her Senators…to this day I still have a voice recording of her teasing me over the phone about a particular game and like in every conversation we ended Gloria would always finish with, I Love Ya! You truly were a gem of a lady and on behalf of my mother and I, We Love You!

    Although Gloria started off as a client, she soon became a friend. What an incredibly smart lady she was. Self sufficient to the end and fun to boot. I loved her sense of humour and the hugs we gave each other. She left the world a better place, My condolences to all the family. You couldn’t have asked for a better mom. She loved you all so much.
