Marissa Gloria

October 12, 1994 - March 21, 2020


Born on October 12th, 1994 in Fargo, ND, Marissa Jo Gloria lived an all too brief 25 years.

She passed on Saturday March 21st, 2020 while serving her country in the U.S Army.

Marissa is survived by Lisa Gonzalez (Mother), Robert Gonzalez (Father), Ruben [Janice] Gloria (Father), Marvin Glaser (Grandparent), Candy Glaser (Grandparent), Dolores Gloria (Grandparent), Robert Gonzalez Sr. (Grandparent), Gloria Gonzalez (Grandparent), Siblings: Brayden Gonzalez, Alexandrea Gonzalez, Tommy Gonzalez, Ruben Jr. Gloria, Miranda Gloria, Jacob Wentz (Nephew), many Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, Extended Family, Zach Stankovich (Special Friend) and many many other loving friends. She is preceded in death by Ralph Gloria (Grandfather) and Albert Gloria [Tony Montana] (Uncle).

Marissa attended West Fargo High, and continued her education at M/State Community College obtaining her Associates Degree in Accounting.

She loved Moorhead MN, and called it home, but had a special place in her heart for Kansas City and the Fargo/West Fargo area.

She entered Active Duty on January 2nd, 2019 and got her castle pinned April 2019. It was one the proudest moments of her life. She was most recently stationed overseas on Active Duty as a Private First Class (PFC), and served as a Combat Engineer at Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek, South Korea.

She loved her family and friends hard, and unconditionally. She had a smile that could lift the heaviest of fogs and a sense of humor that at times could seem peculiar, but could lift the heaviest of spirits.

True to her character, she never let the many obstacles in her life hold her down.

Marissa was the sister we all wanted, the daughter every parent longed for and the feminine role model every girl should aspire to become. She was not an easy kid by any definition, but against all odds, became an inspiration to us all. She spent a lot of her time cultivating strong relationships with family and friends. She loved the outdoors and camping, and was always in the mood for a good country song. Her laughter and smile was contagious, and her presence caring and sweet. She showed us how to persevere, triumph, and how to endure.

Marissa above all cared and loved each and every one of us with her whole heart and with all of her energy, even if there wasn’t enough left for her.

The Memorial Service will be held privately and by invitation only. A Celebration of Life is to be determined at a later date.

For extended family and friends, the service will be available to view online on Boulger Funeral Home’s website after it takes place.

Marissa will be laid to rest at the Fargo National Cemetery.

She will be given military honors at the funeral home after the service.

We would like to extend our gratitude for your continued support and understanding.

    🙏🏼 My sister ✝️
    “As kids we lived together, we fought, we laughed, we cried. We didn’t always show the love that we both had inside. We shared our dreams, our plans, & secrets too. All the memories we share is what bonds me now to you. We grew to find we have a love that is strong today, it’s a love shared by our family, you are my sister not by choice but by nature of our birth. I could not have chosen a better one. You are the best” 💖💛

    🌤 My best friend, literally my partner in crime, my sister, my hero with the will power to accomplish anything you wanted. Continued on to be my Angel. Forever thankful our moms were also the best of friends to let us continue that bond. I pray your smiling & laughing up in heaven just like you always showed us. So bright your smile was & is remembered so dearly. ☀️

    🕊 May You Rest In Peace, & Fly With The Birds 🕊
    💛I will Always love & miss you Marissa Jo💝

  51. Hannah Elkins says:

    Gloria, you were my battle for life, and you still are, and I know you are with me everyday that goes by. You were much too young to go, but God needed his angel and he blessed you in many ways, that even I can’t describe. I know that wherever you are, you are in a much better place. You had such a great character, and you touched the lives of those around you, and I don’t even think you realized it. Your presence was always wanted, you knew how to put a smile on anyone’s face in a time of need. You never let anyone feel out of place, and you were always so welcoming with open arms & an open heart. You had a laugh so rememberable, and eyes so bright and beautiful. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and our wonderful memories that you provided to me. I love you Marissa and I miss you everyday ♥️keep living out your life and take care of yourself in this new state, and watch over us.

  52. Julia Siegel says:
