Remembering Aunt Gloria
Aunt Gloria passed away 2 years ago, she would have been 76 this year.
Frankly, I am quite surprised that she isn’t still here. In spite of the health problems that plagued her for many years, I thought she may outlive even more folks just on her attitude alone.
I first met Gloria when Doug and I came to visit his family and we stayed with Gloria in 1996.
When I got to her house she was so sweet to me. From that first visit on when ever we went to San Diego to visit family we stayed with aunt Gloria. She always made me feel so comfortable staying at her house. She was a great cook and always had pastries around. I love pastries!!
At Thanksgiving Aunt Gloria fixed a Lebanese/American feast. The food was delicious.
She loved to gamble, in particular playing Bingo with her girlfriends.
I think Aunt Gloria was a really great lady and I miss her.
Working on the family tree I found some old yearbook photos of hers which I’ll post at the bottom. Her high school graduation yearbook had a quote from each senior student and Aunt Gloria’s quote was “you can never stop learning, so why start?” lol.
