She is survived by her sisters Barbara McLeod (Joseph), Betty Burnside (Don) and her brother Bill Lynn. Auntie Gloria will be deeply missed by her nieces and nephews Bradley, Lynn (Art), Sara, Ian (Alyssa), Jennifer and Grace (Josh).
She had special bond with all her great nieces and nephews Kiera, Kamryn, Kaelyn, Maia, Caiden, Teagan, Seth, Logan, Bella, and Denika. Gloria will be lovingly remembered by her lifelong friend Donna Linville and family, Sue Pauhl, Chris Cuttress, Leslie Bell and Donna Alexander.

Gloria graduated from St. Joseph’s School of Nursing and began her rewarding and dedicated career as an R.N. She went on to become President of O.N.A and then retired from there as Director Internal Services where she became an inspirational leader, mentor and advocate for R.N’s. She served on many boards and loved giving back to the communities she lived in. She had a passion for life, loved to travel, paint, and knit to name a few. She was kind, witty, generous, and made friends easily.
Gloria was the Lynn family matriarch and will be so greatly missed by all. “Yeah But!”
Thank you for the wonderful care, Gloria received from the Medical-Surgical ICU team.
