Gloria received her early education in the Accomack County Public Schools and continued her education in New York City at the College of New Rochelle.
Gloria’s career with the New York City Public School system lasted twenty-three years at one school, PS 133. She returned home to Virginia to care for her elderly family members, but her love for children brought her back to the school system in Virginia. There she continued to work with children until June, 2019 and was looking forward to another school year.
She was a long-time member of Friendship United Methodist Church, now New Beginnings, and worshiped at Canaan Baptist Church while living in New York City.
Gloria will be remembered for her kind and thoughtfulness, cooking, witty remarks, and colorful sense of humor.
She leaves to cherish her memories: her children, Carlette, Xavier, Crystal, and Chanta; brothers, Thomas, Jr. and Ronald; son-in-law, Carl; daughter-in-law, Barbara; six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and a number of special family members, including Olivia, Kathy, Danielle, Mable, Donette, Dolly, and Celeste; numerous cousins and friends.
