My heart felt condolences to all of Gloria's family. I have many childhood
memories of Gloria as I practically lived at the Nevin's house growing up with
Renee as one of my very best friends. Gloria always had a peaceful
maturity about her and always seemed so "grown-up" and together. I know
she will be missed by all that who were touched by her life. A real blessing to know she is with her Lord.

Gloria had a quiet and gentle spirit. She was a great Mom and Wife. I could always count on seeing her in her pew at church, sitting with her Mom and Dad. I am very sad for her family, but I know she loved the Lord and is no longer suffering. I am sure that Jack and Joyce Nevins are holding her close in heaven. We love you Gloria.

I worked with Gloria for four years at Macatawa Bank, and we worked side-by-side for two of them. She always smiled, and her face would light up when she talked about her family. She was so proud of all of her kids, and she adored her grandchildren. She loved her trips every spring with Doug, and while she wasn't glad to come back to the office, she still wore that beautiful smile and looked forward to planning the next one.

My mother meant the world to me and so many others. I want to express my personal gratitude to her, as a strong and independent woman. A special thank you to all of her friends and family ,for their love and devotion to her. My mother's memory will live on, in the lives of so many and that makes me feel blessed.

Gloria has been an inspiration in my life. Her quiet, gentle and loving ways, made people want to be around her. This world has lost a wonderful woman, but heaven has gained a graceful, loving angel. I will always remember Gloria with love and respect as a friend and as an adopted-like sister. XO
