Obituary for GLORIA MAE GROSS

Gloria Mae Garner was born on August 23, 1952, to the late Clara Blake Garner and the late Owen Garner, Sr., in Prince Frederick, MD. She departed this life quietly on February 20, 2016, at her home in Lusby, MD, surrounded by her loving family. Gloria was educated within the Calvert County Public School (CCPS) system, graduating from Calvert Senior High School in 1972. She would later be employed by CCP S for over 20 years as a cafeteria employee. Many students who passed through her lunch line gave her hugs and kisses when they saw her, remembering her smile, warmth and generosity.

Gloria was united in holy matrimony to Larry B. Gross on August 7, 1978. From this union one son was born, Bernard K. Gross.

Gloria's favorite pastime was watching action-packed movies while crocheting. She made over 3,000 quilts and kindly gave them away as gifts. Gloria loved hosting gatherings for her family and friends. She was an amazing cook and made sure that everyone was well-fed. She also loved animals. She enjoyed feeding the birds, raccoons, squirrels, stray dogs and cats, etc. and even adopted a few along the way.

Gloria was preceded in death by her parents: Clara and Owen Garner, Sr.; brothers, Owen Garner, Jr., Ronald "Head" Garner and Harold Garner; step-mother, Elva Garner; twin nephews, Arnez and Nanez Mitchell and niece, Keisha Garner.

Gloria is survived by her devoted husband Larry; her son Bernard and wife Melissa; two grandchildren: Jaelen and Lauren; mother-in-law, Ellamae Weems Gross; eight sisters, Diane (Cliffton) Johnson, Betty (Carlton) Spriggs, Carol Holsey, Merle Garner, April Garner, Tracy Garner, Lashann Garner and Janay (Darnell)Chase; three brothers: Earl Garner, Michael Garner and Antonio Garner; one step-sister Dianne Harrod; three step-brothers: Linwood Harrod, Arthur Harrod and John Harrod; three aunts: Viola Garner Milbourne, Marnette Blake Stewart and Alverta Blake Buck; Goddaughter, Hazel Sewell; life-long friends, Sharlyn Briscoe, Sarah Kenney, Annie Mae Mason, Robin Jones, a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and our dog, Dino.

Gloria will undoubtedly be remembered as loving, caring, giving and nurturing to all who knew her. Rest in peace my loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, niece and friend.
