Gloria J. Hohlfelder passed away peacefully in Albertson, North Carolina on December 22nd, following a brief illness. She took her final breath as Andrea Bocelli sang Gloria in Excelsis Deo.
She was preceded in death by Gene Hohlfelder, her loving husband of 70 years, who passed away in April 2023. Loving Mother to Barry (Barbara,) Alan (Betsy,) and Karen Washburn (Robert). Wonderful Grandmother to Erin, Kaylee (Bryan), Ben (Alyssa,) and Cecilie. Great Grandmother to Bodee and Ava.
Gloria was born in Washington, Missouri on September 6, 1930. She graduated with a degree from Deaconess School of Nursing and worked for two pediatricians before starting her family. She used her skills in later years by volunteering many hours at hospitals and with community organizations wherever she lived.
As Gene’s career with Alcoa took them to Arkansas, Texas, Pennsylvania, Suriname, Brazil and finally back to Arkansas, Gloria embraced the adventure and lived the philosophy of “bloom where you’re planted”. She and Gene traveled the world extensively, visiting over 40 countries, and relishing in the experience of other cultures and people.
Gloria was also an avid bridge player and golfer and was quick to tell you she was better at both than Gene :) She was also a wonderful cook and “Hostess with the Mostess.” Above all, family was everything to her.
A private internment service will be held in Arkansas at a later date. In lieu of flowers, Memorial donations may be made to Second Presbyterian Church in Little Rock Arkansas or CARTI (Central Arkansas Radiation Therapy Institute) at Carti.com.
