Benton Harbor High School, class of 1969. Gloria was later united in Matrimony to JW (Bill) Weatherspoon, where she gained and was loved by extended family forevermore. She was Den Mother to Cub Scouts of Michigan for her eldest Son and neighborhood children. Gloria worked for 33 years as a dedicated civil servant, taking pride in her work for the local Red Roof Inn.
She exhibited great strength and perseverance throughout her life, sometimes working 3 jobs to alleviate the need of any want for her children. She always strived to raise decent human beings.
Most close to her called her Mama, Nana, and TT because more than anything on this earth Gloria affectionately loved and cared for her children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews; They were all always known as her "babies".
Gloria enjoyed beautifying her garden, collecting new recipes, preparing food with love, and spending long hours conversing with her best friend and son, Dolan; she loved to travel and always spoke great things over all of her children and family.
