Gloria L. Diamond

Gloria Lorraine Diamond, a woman with strong family values, grace, love and patience, died August 29, 2020.  Gloria, 79 of Charlotte, Michigan, was born May 2, 1941 in Eaton Rapids, the daughter of Robert T. Hoag and Majil Naomi Gibbs.  On May 9, 1959 at the age of 18, Gloria married the love of her life Harold J. Diamond and together embarked on a 61 year adventure together.  She devoted her life to her husband and her family.  Gloria spent over 30 years owning a child day care.  She enjoyed gardening as well as sewing and quilting.  She could never make quilts fast enough for her family.  She was truly a great seamstress.  She would make christening gowns for her grandchildren.  She would also make clothes for the grandchildren, and the dresses with matching ribbons were just amazing. True joys to her life were the grandchildren. The trips, vacations and visits with them truly made her happy.
