We send our deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers to the family of Mrs. Gloria Anne Speaks, who was such a kind and gentle spirit. Gloria's faith was lovingly expressed in her dedication to her family, the church choir, and in the caring words and gestures that she generously shared with everyone. Our families have known each other and worshipped together at St Bernard’s Church for more than 65 years. Although we miss Gloria, Bill, and Natalie, we are reassured that they are all together with Jesus in Eternal Joy and Comfort.
May God Bless all her family with His Amazing Grace, Peace, and Mercy.
Our Sincerest Empathy and Love,

What a kind and graceful lady. I grew up admiring Mr. and Mrs. Speaks share their faith each Sunday with the choir at St. Bernards. Now, they are reunited in the choir of heavenly angels. I can imagine Natalie joining with them. God bless.
