Gloria was born May 16, 1925 in Des Moines, Iowa to Carl and C. Grace Perrin Bricker. She was a secretary all her life in Des Moines. During WWII she worked at Fort Des Moines as a messenger and secretary for the Air Force. She loved to sew and was a wonderful seamstress who sewed most of her own clothes. Family was very important to her and she took care of her mother Grace until her passing in 1992.

In 2001 Gloria moved to Wyoming to be near her daughter Sue and granddaughter Melissa. The next few years were filled with love, laughter and fun times.

Gloria is survived by her children, Chris (Louise) Meltvedt of Minnesota, Sue (Jeff) Atwood of Wyoming; her grandchildren, Elise and Lauren Meltvedt, Miah Atwood, Melissa (Eric) Butler and Tad Roccaro; her great grandchildren, Nick, Sierra and Addie Butler; and her brother, Colonel Rodney P.G. (Nona) Bricker of Florida.

You were our one and only. We will miss your singing and beautiful blue eyes. You faced your final days with the same sense of humor and happiness that we all knew and loved. We love you!
