Gloria A. Smith

Gloria A. Smith passed over on the morning of October 14, 2021, at the age of 95.

She was born to Eugene and Santa Apice in 1926. She was the middle child of 17 children, 9 boys and 8 girls, and the mother of 2 of her own, Gloria and Stephen. Gloria loved to travel. She cherished being with family and friends, and could often be found making her famous Jewish Apple Cake. She had an irreverent sense of humor, and was always there to cook or clean for someone in need. She loved the Blessed Mother and prayed the rosary everyday.

Gloria is pre-deceased by her son Stephen, and survived by her daughter Gloria, her grand-daughters Toni and Kimberly, her great-grandchildren Aiden and Molly, her sisters Ida and Fran, her brother Jim, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Please join the Smith family after 11:00 am, Sunday, October 24th at Delaware Valley Cremation Center, 7350 State Road, Philadelphia, PA 19136 for a gathering of remembrance in honoring and celebrating Gloria’s life. The memorial tribute service will begin promptly at 12:00 with time for refreshments and fellowship immediately afterwards, from around 12:30 until 2:45 pm, where Gloria's family will be accessible to receive the loving comfort of your condolences, remembrances and support.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Gloria's name may be made to Jefferson Health Homecare and Hospice.

I am so sorry for your loss. The love and care you had for your mother was that of a very special daughter. Your mother left me memories that will last forever. She will be missed.
