Gloria was born in New Orleans and lived in Metairie for 71 years. She was an active volunteer for Delta Playground where she ran the cheerleading program for 10 years. She loved reading and swapping books with her 2 nieces, Bridget and Brandi, doing crafts and cross stitching, cooking and shopping. Gloria and Lester enjoyed their trips to the casinos on the Gulf Coast. Her greatest pleasure was spending time with her family, especially her nightly visits with her “adopted daughter” Wendy Brassette Bell, her afternoon visits on the carport with Kristopher, her treasured Friday night dinners with Triniti, Kara, and Mikah, and her carpool rides with Bradley and Blake.
