Gloria's passing has brought sadness to many and left a void in their hearts. Our sincere condolences to Dave and their entire family. Gloria was definitely a bright light in this world. We too remember Gloria from high school and her time on the football field as a drum majorette is absolutely one of the highlights that were unforgettable. She most definitely had an infectious smile and a heart filled with love and kindness. May her memory help fill the voids and bring comfort to her family.

So sorry to hear this. She was a mentor indeed and a kind, sweet person. Lots of great memories of band and building class floats at her house. Rest easy Gloria.

How do I begin to say goodbye to my dearest and best friend forever Gloria Upson Rayman. Instead I will say “until we meet again my dear and lovely friend” My heart is broken along with the loved ones left behind, your presence will be missed by all of those who loved you and there were many. The special memories of you that we will all hold deep in our hearts could fill oceans,. Anyone who came in contact with Glo was drawn to her including me. Gloria was forever an inspiration to me, more like a sister than my own. Comstock High School was a better school because of her and the many friends she made. I am sure our classmates all remember the fun times and the contagious joy that she spread amongst them. She proudly led the band as a Drum Majorette for 4 years and I proudly served our band along with Gloria as a Majorette.....Gloria had a beautiful smile and a beautiful heart along with a genuine love for family and friends. There are no words to describe how much she will be missed, the world has lost a beautiful soul and Heaven has gained one. Rest In Peace my dearest and Bestest friend forever..... love Jude

Dave, Matt, Jen and family, I was shocked and saddened when I saw that Gloria passed away. I am so very sorry and know you will miss her terribly. I used to love it when she would stop by my office and we would either sneak off to Panera or she would bring me a coffee and we would fix all the wrongs in the world. Gloria was a great lady. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Alice

What a loss. I am so sorry to hear of Gloria’s passing. I worked with Gloria on several collaborative projects through my business, when she was at Brooke Lodge. It was always a pleasure to see and work with her - such a fine person. With sympathy, Lin Czapla.

We are deeply saddened at the passing of our dear friend Gloria. Such good memories of our high school days and beyond. Our trips together with the kids and the volleyball memories. We will hold them all dear to our hearts. If you knew "Glo Babe" it was to love her. Her caring ways and wonderful sense of humor and infectious laugh and smile will be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dave and the family. Rest in peace now sweet Glo in the Kingdom of Heaven. We here will never forget you.

So many thoughts...where to begin? Gloria has been a good friend of ours for over 50 years. She was fun loving., thoughtful, energetic and always knew how to share a good time. In recent years our times together were more spread out, but we will always cherish the memories. Dave and all the family please accept our heartfelt condolences. Sandy and Joe Hnilo
