Memories Timeline


  1. So sad for everyone to see you go, Gloria. Will always remember your sweet smile. One of my favorite memories is you dancing around at Katie’s reception barefoot, carrying your shoes and singing along with the band. Watch over all of us and say “hi” to your parents and sisters.

  2. Glo,
    Thanks for being such a good friend!! You were an integral part of all the important parts of my life! I’ll miss you more than I can ever express!
    Love you!

  3. So, so many fun childhood memories growing up together! It was especially wonderful reconnecting over the last few years, of which I am ever so grateful. You had such a big heart and infectious smile and laugh. Love and miss you Gloria. Prayers and my deepest condolences to your family. ❤️

  4. Our prayers go out that God may grant you and your family comfort and some understanding to your untimely loss of Gloria.

  5. Gloria,
    We will miss you till we are with you again.You were someone I could always depend on. Thanks for all the love and life you shared with us.
    Your marriage to Terry was an example of love and commitment to us all.
    All my love little Sister.

  6. Fletcher Family,
    I was a childhood friend, neighbor, schoolmate of Gloria’s from 5 years old. I have many distinct, wonderful memories growing up with Gloria; we’d play Barbies for hours, ride bikes and walk to school together.
    Reconnecting a few years ago, being ever so thoughtful, Gloria brought an old photo of us playing on her back swing set of which I cherish…
    Wishing you peace in this time of sorrow.

    Howard Family,
    I have wonderful memories on visits to your home on Western as a child.
    Thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  7. Happy memories of Gloria; Her peace and joy opening the camper at Borderline 11 and hanging her hummingbird feeder before plopping down in her chair with a book to soak it all in. The concerts we went to where she’d sing every song whether she knew it or not. Her pride and wonderment every year giving the hawk report at the house. The ATV rides to beautiful places where we’d chastise our overly brave men and laugh. Stomping her feet, clapping her hands and calling us “suckers” when she won the pot in cards. How she’d get giddy after half a margarita. And a memory that has made me laugh for years. We had a Fletcher/Francis get away and she asked me to sit down and work a puzzle with her (a children’s puzzle no less). I told her I wasn’t much for puzzles but sat down and 10 minutes later my patience was up. I said “I quit”, she said “you can’t quit” I replied, “but I did”. For the next half hour her singsong voice rang out over the house from the loft, “Jessica’s a quitter, Jessica’s a quitter” Gloria, queen of puzzles and laughs. You’ve left a big hole in our friends family, we’ll miss you forever but that big smile and laugh will always be with us. Shine on Glo <3.

  8. Dear Terry and family,
    We were so sorry to hear of your loss. We only met Gloria a few times at our group’s ‘Rockies game picking parties’ many years ago but she had a great smile and we knew she made you happy. May all the good memories through the years give you comfort and strength during these difficult times.
    With heartfelt sympathy,
    Max and Linda Hendon

  9. We have lost a wonderfully beautiful soul. Gloria always had a smile and a waive. Helpful to everyone and an absolute pleasure to work with. I will miss her, greatly. She will always be in my heart with the friendship we had. Love and prayers to the family.

  10. Dear Terry and Family,
    So very sorry to hear of your loss. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  11. To the Howard and Fletcher families:
    I was in shock to here of Gloria’s passing. We were class mates at Sacred Heart. I remember playing at her house on Western Ave. A memory I will always have is whenever we sang the song Gloriain Excelsis Deo as a class we made sure when we sang Gloria we were very loud and we all looked at Gloria.
    I loved her spirit. I can’ Imagine your grief. May your Memories Comfort you.

  12. I knew Gloria in high school and I remember her as always smiling, kind, gentle, and friendly, and happy. Sounds like she lived much of her life the same way! My condolences to her family.

  13. I met Gloria when she moved to Lake Havasu City, AZ with her mom in the early 1970’s beginning in junior high school 8th grade through high school. I was grateful she needed a college roommate so off we went to Mesa, Arizona. She was a lot of fun and I have many good memories. I will always remember her for a great smile and laugh! My condolences to Terry and her family and friends. Love you Gloria!

  14. Gloria,

    You lived life to the fullest. You always wore a smile. We had some great times together! It was awesome being your friend. I look forward to seeing you when it’s my turn. Meanwhile, have some fun up there (as if you needed any encouragement!)

  15. I went to high school with Gloria, and I have many fond memories of her from those days. We lost touch after graduation, but I will never forget her great laugh and lovely smile. We shared a memory recently through a mutual friend, and while we weren’t able to speak directly at that moment in time, it was special to know she remembered our climbing experience from so many years ago and howled with laughter from the recollection, as I did. I would have loved to have been sitting next to her as we shared that funny memory. You made it to the Top of the Mountain, Gloria. My sincerest condolences to Gloria’s family and loved ones.

  16. I met Gloria in High School in Lake Havasu. I called her Glo because her sunny personality just always shown thru her!!.. She was just as cute inside as she was outside with the bubbliest personality and just being with her made you chuckle. The dinner table with our Lord became a little more lively with her in attendance. Prayers of peace and comfort for her family.

  17. Met Gloria in the 8th grade when she moved to Havasu, became best of friends. Such a wonderful sweet person. She would come out to the race track to watch us all race, go to the sand dunes with our family, many lake trips and so many great memories growing up in Havasu. Was sad to see her move away. Always had a great smile and sounds like she still had it. Loved by everyone she met. I can’t imagine the hole left by her being gone. My prayers for peace for you all. No words can take away the pain but her memories can help. God bless you all for knowing her! Jesus, please tell Gloria we all love her and miss her!

  18. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Gloria. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the God of all comfort’ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
