ALONZO, Gloria “Goyie” Araga

January 24, 1945 – Rosario, Philippines
March 2, 2014 – Kenner, Louisiana, United States

Gloria “Goyie” Araga Alonzo, beloved sister, sister-in-law, aunt, and great-aunt went to be with her Lord on Sunday, March 2, 2014 at the age of 69 years.

Gloria was born on January 24, 1945 in Tejeros Convention, Rosario, Cavite, Philippines. She was the seventh of eleven children. She had three brothers and seven sisters.

Gloria immigrated to Winnipeg, Canada in 1969 and moved to Calgary in 1981. She worked as a seamstress at Split Industry in Winnipeg, was a manager at Mac’s Convenience Store, and a caregiver at St. Joseph Nursing, Glenmore Auxiliary Hospital and Options Rehabilitation Services in Calgary.

Her sister Dory introduced her to Calgary Filipino Alliance Church which is now called River of Life Alliance Church. She eventually became a member of this church. She was also a member of Livingstone small group.

In November 2013, Gloria was hospitalized and had surgery on her stomach due to polyps in her intestine. Unfortunately, on her way to Mexico to attend her niece’s wedding, she had internal bleeding that resulted in her passing.

Gloria is deeply missed by her siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, and church family and friends. Right now, she is rejoicing in the presence of her Creator where there is no more pain, tears and suffering, as she already received complete healing from the Great Physician, her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Gloria is survived by her brothers, Felix Alonzo (Precy), Anastacio Alonzo (Aida) and Emilio Alonzo (Yolly); and sisters, Zeny Peregrino, Eva Alonzo and Dory Florendo (Rolly).

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Thursday, March 13, 2014 and Friday, March 14, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Thursday, March 13, 2014 and Friday, March 14, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

In living memory of Gloria Alonzo, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.
