  3. My deepest sympathy for your loss Always enjoyed visiting with Gloria and her family when y’all came to Sykeston

  4. I had the privilege of assisting Gloria in selling her condo…she had the most incredible Angel collection…I felt she was an Angel, herself!!!

  5. Paul,
    May your mother have eternal peace and joy with our loving God. She was a woman of faith and lived and loved life and you. I remember her well from Nativity and your aunt Sr. Jean as she was my teacher at St. James in Grand Forks. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. Fr. Tim Bushy

  6. I had the distinct honor and pleasure of caring for her at St. Catherine’s. She was funny, kind, witty, and a joy to be around. I will miss her terribly. She was immensely proud of Paul, loved football, and was loved by so many.

    • Sending sincere sympathy in the loss of your Mom. I was flower girl for her and your dad at their wedding. I remember them both as always being cheerful and having big smiles for us kids ( nieces and nephews) whenever back in Sykeston to visit.
      May she be welcomed home by all her loved ones who have gone before her.
