  4. Shawn, Corinne and all Gloria’s family -I was shocked and saddened to hear of Gloria’s sudden passing. I worked with
    Gloria at Milton Williams School and she was truly a remarkable person. We shared many happy memories and much laughter. We had kept in touch over the years and every Christmas she was present in our home through her ceramic creation “Emily’s Nut House.” I will surely miss her. My prayers are with you now.
