Gloria DYBLE

DYBLE, Gloria Edna. May 26, 1940 – Nov. 18, 2013. After a courageous fight with cancer, Gloria passed away peacefully in her home on November the 18th, in the loving arms of her family. Gloria was born and raised in Vancouver British Columbia. She was always busy with many hobbies and for many years was a Master Doll Maker. Together Dick and Gloria enjoyed rock hounding, jewelry making and showing their vintage car. They also loved to travel in their motor home particularly to Arizona for 3 months every winter. They, along with their passengers – two cats and a dog, made and met many friends while on their journeys together. It is with great sadness that Gloria leaves behind her beloved husband Dick of 53 years, her son Rick and his wife Bev, son James and his wife Rosie, daughter Michelle and her partner Oliver. Gloria also leaves behind her brother Bill Symons and his wife Sharon and their children Gordon and Sharlene as well as Dick’s sister Louise McCartney. Gloria was a beautiful person who warmed the hearts of many who came to know her. Her family always came first and she was the “glue” that kept everyone together. We will all miss her tremendously.

Dear Mother,

You are not forgotten

Though on earth you are no more

Still in memory you are with us

As you always were before.

Forever loved and truly missed.
