She was born on October 15, 1926 to Mr. John Wright Atkinson and Ms. Hettie Catherine Turknett. She grew up in Wesconnett Florida (about 12 miles out of Jacksonville, Florida) and was the sixth of seven children in her family.

Gloria is survived by five wonderful children Joseph, John, Joyce, Jim and Steve. Sixteen Grandchildren and many beautiful Great Grandchildren that love their Grandma Very Much.
Gloria loved her family very much and was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. She lived her testimony and was a wonderful example of loving, selfless service. The Gospel in her words was “My Life” and she truly had charity. She loved painting, and gardening, especially her black eyed peas and tomatoes.
