Smith, Gloria

Gloria Ann Smith (Graham), passed away at Trillium hospital at the age of 71 years, this past Sunday with her family by her side. Born in New Brunswick and raised in Etobicoke, and eventually moving to Mississauga. She met Philbert Roberts in 1980 and they enjoyed many happy years together. Gloria was a wonderfully devoted mother to her 3 children Glenn (Lynn), Tracy (Bob), and Graham (Sara). Devoted daughter to Ella Graham and the late Gerald Graham. Sister to Carvell (Joanne), Cindee (Jim), Ralph (Julie) and Wanda. Gloria was a loving Grandmother to Brandon, Shannon, Connor, Joshua and Maya. She was a dedicated Great Grandmother to Jaxon, and Gracie. She will be fondly remembered as a Great Aunt and Aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Gloria was busy raising her children, travelling, active in family gatherings and an avid Bingo player. We will always remember her kind heart, facial expressions and her colorful wit. She was immensely proud of her children and leaves nothing but beautiful memories. She spent over 30 years with W.R. Grace (Cryovac), finishing her career there, where she was well known and admired. Gloria was a strong, determined and fiercely independent woman. We will miss her every day.

Special thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses at Trillium Hospital who provided invaluable care to Gloria.
