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.
