    Grandma taught me the importance of family. She also approved of the man I was dating and I knew when she did, he’d be my husband. She was right – we are happily married 20 years later. I wish I could be there to celebrate her life. I sure will miss her. We will be donating the the Alzheimer’s Association.

    Love you always, Grandma!

      Grandma, thank you for being my biggest cheerleader. You always saw the best in me, even when I didn’t. You encouraged me and supported me. When the tables turned, I became your encourager and tried to support you, from miles apart. The past year was especially hard on you. I’m proud of you for what you went through and I admire you for being so strong. I will miss you so much. I will miss our phone conversations . I know you are in a much better place. I will see you again, on the other side. Love, your oldest Grandchild, Colleen

    My sympathy to the entire Boucher/McKinney family. Although I haven’t seen Gloria in 40 years we communicated every year at Christmas and she kept me updated on all the family, grandkids and great-grandkids. She was a wonderful woman and I’m sure will be missed by everyone. My thoughts and prayers and with everyone. Blessings! Gail Krowski-Greuel

    Gloria was a long time member of the Choir at St. Roman Parish Milwaukee , WI. The photo is from 1995.

    I just spoke with Gloria shortly after Al passed. She was a dear friend, who sang a beautiful alto in my choir, bowled with us in mixed couples league, camped with our group of friends,
    and played Sheepshead with us girls. RIP dear friend. “May the angels choirs greet you, and lead you into Paradise”.

    One strong willed & courageous friend, devoted daughter, courageous wife.
    So loved her family.
    Caring friend. Many good times in choir, camping & card playing. One of my favorite memoirs was how she spent her 80th birthday…
    Give a hug to my birthday buddy!

    I’m sorry to have missed the funeral but I just watched the video – what a wonderful tribute to a wonderful lady. Blessings to all!

    When I was a baby, my parents selected Uncle Lou to be my Godfather. He was a good choice. So when the time came, I asked Aunt Gloria to be my Confirmation Sponsor. With tears in her eyes, Aunt Gloria accepted. She was so touched and honored! She, too, was a good choice! Here are some photos of us on the big day in 1983. I love the smile on her face in Church! I always thought of this when I would see her and Uncle Lou singing in St. Roman’s Choir. Even now, whenever I am at St. Roman’s I look at the Choir area and remember them. They were both so inspiring!

    Eternal Rest grant unto them O Lord, and let Perpetual Light shine upon them. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen!

    See you on the Other Side!
