Gloria was born January 11, 1929 in Kansas City, Kansas, daughter of Robert and Gertrude (Kielhack) Patterson. During her lifetime Gloria was loved by all, and loved everyone she met. She loved to dance and socialize; she enjoyed bowling, cake decorating, and traveling. Her family remembers that she once owned a light blue 1963 ½ Ford Fastback, and she could really make it fly! It is best said that Gloria truly loved life.

She is survived by her sister, Carolyn Carnahan; nieces Linda Gregory, Susan Monroe, and Claudette Patterson, Debbie Allen, and Caron Carnahan; nephew Kitt Patterson, as well as niece and god-daughter Angela Pearson.
