My Mom loved spending time with Gloria at the Javitz Center In NY and they got to be buddies. She had great spirit and was one of my Mom’s favorite gal pals. Now she is reunited with her much loved son, May she Rest In Peace together.

Neil, z’l, and I were best friends and long time bridge partners. We traveled to numerous tournaments together.
So I was blessed to get to know Gloria well. She was kind, warm and hospitable and never uttered a bad word about anybody. She always treated me graciously.
May her memory be for a blessing.

Dear Gloria's Family,
As one of the many people who went to New York on Superior Tours over the years I have wonderful memories of Gloria. She was always friendly and made the trips fun. The best part was when she would show the movies returning home or at least try to get the vcr and dvr player to work. She made those trips a lot but she seemed to make each one as if it was the first one. Everyone who rode with her will miss her friendly hello and smiling face. Thanks Gloria for the memories

I am a volunteer at Levindale Geriatric Center and I had the pleasure and privilege of visiting Gloria Zimmerman almost everyday for over 2 years where she was affectionately known as "SUNSHINE" for her wonderful cheerful, demeanor.
She truly radiated happiness to all who knew her.
In my heart and memory I will always know you can "never take my sunshine away".
