Gloria had a love of baseball she was one of the biggest Red Sox fans there was. She never missed a game and never call her when a game was on because she wouldn’t answer the phone. Her other love was Grange, she was a faithful member for 73 years to Castine Grange. She helped with yard sales and events and always the display for the Blue Hill Fair. She will be sadly missed by her family and by 2 of her good friends Roxanne Grindle and Tina Salzamelo and nephew Wallie Hatch and wife Linda and niece Jeannie and Earl Hamm.
A special thank you to the wonderful girls at Courtland. A special love to Leah, Bev, Hannah, Patty Graham, Joanne, Rachell, Melanie, Sarah and Barbara for being so good to our mother. You all made it easier for us and her.
