Gloria was a faithful, lifelong member , Sunday school teacher and pianist at Blackwater Baptist Church.  She also taught piano to many for over 40 years and she taught music to many children at Knotts Island Elementary School.

She loved her family oh so much, especially her grandsons.  When they were little, they spent many a day/night at her house.  They loved going there because she and grandpa spent many hours playing games and cards with them.
