    To the entire family, it was brought to my attention today by my mom, that Gloria had passed away and I was very upset that I was not told earlier.I would have surely come to her funeral to pay my respects. She was a wonderful human being, and I will miss her. I am so sorry for my late response as I was not informed and did not see it in the newspaper. I am holding your family in my prayers, and my sincerest condolences to the family for your loss.

    Have just heard of Gloria's passing I myself only knew her as a very little girl having moved to Ontario now many years ago. From Kelowna my father and Gloria's father, two brothers Bill and Seig worked together in the business of Hilltop Sand and Gravel. My now grown children, Laura, Graham, Sarah and Grace have more resent memories of Gloria than I. Just wanted to express our thoughts out here in the east for Gloria's much too soon passing. Cousins Wayne (Teresa) Scherle, Diane (Scherle) Brown, cousins, children now grown and grandchildren of ours and as well. Regards from the family of Alvena Scherle.

    Gloria was loved by all she touched, and she touched so many. The volumes of people from all walks of life that presented themselves to show respect and share the grief of her passing is a true testament how she truly made a difference where it counts. This angel will never be duplicated, but we can follow her lead and make her proud in her honor.

    Dearest Karla, Carl, Jack, Jerry, Beth, Jessie, Stefani, David and Andrew and all of her friends and family that my dear friend touched in so many ways. She was always speaking highly of everyone and so non-judgmental caring and giving. She was my best friend for fifty years. I do not know how to imagine her not in our lives but do know she believed in God and Jesus and so I imagine her at peace and in the garden of Heaven. Rest well my friend until we meet again. I will remember your love always and try to make everything "perfectly perfect " for your celebration of life. Love you, Shelley.

    Oh Jack my heart is broken. We were best friends in high school and I taught her how to drive. Sorry but in my defense she wasn't a very good student! Although our paths went in different directions we always remained friends. So quick to smile and give you a hug.
