They returned to Aroostook County and eventually bought a house in Caribou. Gloria worked for and retired from The Department of Human Services in Caribou. She was proud of being a 50-year member of the Order of Eastern Star in which she served in numerous positions as well as Worthy Matron. She liked to travel including trips with Eastern Star, trips to Canada with her family, and most recently a trip to Wisconsin to visit her daughter, Lisa and also attended her granddaughter’s wedding. She had a quick wit. She loved to knit, sew and quilt. She canned and preserved garden vegetables, pickles, jams, jellies and spiced crabapples. Her baking skills often filled the house with delectable aromas of bread, molasses donuts, or cakes and cookies. She loved reading and had many favorite authors. After the death of her husband in 2018, she moved to Westbrook to live with her daughter, Susan and son-in-law, Tim. The last four months, she resided at Scarborough Terrace in Scarborough where she made many new friends and enjoyed numerous activities.
