Gloria Garbe

Gloria was a devout Catholic with a lifelong devotion to the Blessed Mother.  Her cooking was always top notch: Chicken Cutlets, Ham and Cabbage, Veggie Soup.  Need a mint?  Gloria always had one.  As a parent she was strict, but only because she wanted quality kids.   But her calling in life was to be a grandmother, spoiling them with the greatest apple pies and root beer floats.  Her rose garden brightened the neighborhood.  Retirement found her doing a little travelling, checking out the national parks and if she had some free time she’d head off to Seaside Heights and battle the wheel games on the Boards.

Her job at the Watchcase earned her more than just a check.  It’s there the young Gloria Seiter met a handsome guy; the late Joseph.  Their 60-year marriage was blessed by three children, Joseph Jr. (Sue), Jim (Kay) and Mary Anne Lamancusa; grandchildren, Kimberly, Jeffery, Michael, Jimmy, Joe, Nikki and Erica; and great-grandchildren, Olivia, John, Jacob, Joey, Lincoln and baby Garbe on the way.
