HAVERHILL - On March 7, 2022, our beloved Gloria passed on from this earth.
Gloria was a devoted mother and caring friend. Her laugh was infectious, and she could find humor in most anything. Gloria was a music lover, everything from Adele to Alice in Chains. She connected with the arts as a dancer in her youth, photographer, and created beautiful artwork using pen and marker.
Gloria dedicated much of her time to education, receiving a master’s degree in Special Needs and spending time as a substitute in the Haverhill area schools, a job she cherished. She also traveled, spending a summer in Europe and a year in S. Korea teaching English. Gloria’s mind was never at rest. She was always curious, asking questions, researching and sharing what she learned with her friends and family. She was enormously empathetic and had respect for all people and living things. She never judged another person and treated everyone equally.
She is survived by her two daughters, Nicole Hollis-Vitale and Chandra Cloutier, and their spouses, Chris Drane and Ben Cloutier; grandchildren Jax and Scarlett Cloutier; her former husband Bill Hollis; as well as many friends and family.
A Celebration of Gloria’s Life will be held on Sunday, March 13, in the Driscoll Funeral Home, Haverhill from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. For guestbook, visit www.driscollcares.com
