Gloria Lucille

Martin née Grisenthwaite

Year of Birth: 1924
Date of Death: September 5th, 2022

Gloria died in Coquitlam on September 5, 2022, at the age of 97. You may have met her at a local coffee shop, Lougheed Mall, or maybe even the casino. Gloria made friends everywhere that she went as she was an outgoing social person. She was always meticulously put together, never leaving home with a hair out of place. She was a loving wife, mother and friend. After her husband Jack retired from CP Rail, they made special memories when taking countless trips throughout Canada via train. No doubt that she came home from each trip with a new pen pal, as she made friends everywhere that she went. Gloria loved to knit and continued to knit well into her nineties. She made countless toques that she would donate for the homeless.

Predeceased by husband Jack and son John. She will be missed by many friends who she has left behind. In honour of Gloria, please phone up a friend who you haven’t seen for a while and go for a cup of coffee in her memory.

“When you leave this world behind

It’s only lent for a very short time.

So, enjoy it while you are here

And say goodbye without a tear.”

-Gloria Martin
