Obituary for GLORIA JEAN HERBERT

Gloria Jean Austin Herbert was born on May 15, 1941 in Altavista, VA. She was the daughter of the late Kermit and Virginia Austin. There were three children in all, one brother, Bernard Rhodes, one sister, Trancie Alexander and Gloria.

Gloria attended school in Rustberg, VA until the 10th grade and then left to pursue work. However in 1999, she went back to night school in Calvert County, MD and completed at the top of her graduating class. She gave thanks to her pastor at that time, the late Bishop Jacob A. Green, who told her how he went back to school later in life and earned his high school diploma. This encouraged her and gave her the faith to go back to school also.

In 1963 Gloria married Robert G. Herbert. From this union there were two children; son Robert (Robbie) T. Herbert and daughter, Lynette M. Herbert-Thomas.

Gloria committed her life to Christ and was baptized in Jesus name at Bethel Way of the Cross Church in 1994, and later received the gift of the Holy Ghost. She was a member of Bethel for many years and served on the Senior Choir, Sisterhood Choir, Health Guild, Kitchen Committee, and Missionary Board. She loved each ministry she served with.

Gloria was a daycare provider for over 30 years. She cared for many children and then later some of their children. She had a wonderful love for children.

Gloria is survived by her husband Robert G. Herbert, son Robert (Robbie) T. Herbert, son-in-law, Enoch Thomas, five grandchildren, five great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends Gloria was preceded in death by her parents, siblings and her daughter.
