She was an independent, hard-working woman, who loved to garden and take care of her home. Yes, that was Gloria up on her roof scrubbing the copper gutters with steel wool. Her favorite hobby was walking about town. She loved reading, music and song, puzzles and brain teasers, and time spent with her family was always a treat. She was generous, always donating to every cause requesting her help. Gloria kept meticulous family records, recording details and saving a wealth of pictures and documents, now treasured by her family.
Gloria was predeceased by her loving brothers, Leo Levy, Max Levy, Jacob Levy, Herman (Victor) Levy and Moshe Levy. She was also predeceased by her sister-in- law Ruth Levy, and her nephew, Steven Levy. She is survived by her sisters-in- law, Sophie Levy and Judy Levy, and her sister-in-law and dear friend, Sylvia Levy, all of West Hartford, and many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, and her adoring niece, buddy, and marble, Madalyn Levy of Bloomfield. Gloria was a dear part of her entire family and will be sadly missed.
Gloria’s family thanks and is very grateful for Gloria’s adopted family and caregivers at Seabury Meadows in Bloomfield, which was her home for seven years. The love and excellent care they gave her helped make her life joyful, fun and more enriched.
