    We are so sorry to hear the loss of Gloria. We have enjoyed living in Jeff and Gloria’s old house on Willow Creek for the past 11 years and fondly think of Gloria almost each and every day that we are there. We will remember her fondly!

    I hold fond memories of Mrs. Wells as we kids were growing up through high school. She always had a kind word to say every time we spoke. I will remember her fondly. All are in my prays at this time in your lives.

    To Jeff, Mike,Amy & Annette,
    What memories of the old neighborhood on Belleau Ln. come to mind. I will miss hearing from her. She was so proud of all of you and your children and the precious ‘grands’.
    A memory of when we were neighbors;
    Gloria called me in a panic as our husbands were at work. She had sighted a large snake in her front yard. Knowing I was a ‘country girl’ she wanted me to kill it. So with hoe in hand, I aproached the dreaded critter…It was huge, a huge tree branch that had fallen. We had a good laugh over it. I remember we had many ‘over the fence’ conversations, especially what was Mike & Larry up to.
    Gloria was my help when I had to leave my newborn,Vicki, with her for a few days as my 3 yr. old,Luann, was in the hospital. Having to care for a newborn must of inspired her as soon afterward, along came Annette. She also trusted me to be Amy’s Sunday School teacher. It was a blest time to have Gloria as my friend and neighbor.

    There are really no words that can express how I feel about losing my dear sweet friend. I miss her voice, face, and her emails wanting to know how we are. I pray that our Heavenly Father will ease your loss and comfort you. Please know, that she will never be forgotten as long as I live. I love you Jeff and if you ever need a shoulder, it is here. Love and Hugs, just me.. Betty. 😮

    Though I knew Gloria only a few months before she passed, I feel blessed to have made her acquaintance through her chapter of the DAR. I found her a delightful person. I will miss getting to know her. My heart and prayers go to her husband, Jeff, her daughters, and extended family and many friends. I told a mutual acquaintance recently that Mrs. Wells could have been born in any era and made her mark and made a difference. This reflects best what words cannot say.
