Gloria Mae Reyos Obituary

Gloria Mae Reyos, a cherished matriarch and beacon of love, passed away on Friday, December 22, 2023, at the age of 78.

Gloria was preceded in death by her husband Victor Reyos, father Charley Harrison, mother Louise Harrison, sisters: Janice Harrison, Lydia BlueEyes, Ruth Manygoats, brother-in-law Harrison Manygoats, brother Henry Harrison, nephews: Anthony Bennie, Garry Jim, grandson Dereck Commanche, and son-in-law William Whitehorse.

She is survived by her daughters: Yvonne Wauneka, Lavonne Harrison, sons: Lincoln Harrison, Wayne Reyos, Lawrence Reyos, 17 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.

Born on April 10, 1945, Gloria's life was marked by her unwavering commitment to her family, a passion for life's simple pleasures, and an infectious enthusiasm that brought joy to all who knew her.

Gloria's life was a vibrant tapestry woven with the threads of her many interests. She was a master of puzzles, finding tranquility in the challenge and satisfaction in each completed picture. A savvy shopper, she delighted in the hunt for the perfect bargain, her keen eye rarely missing a hidden gem. Gloria's love for entertainment was eclectic, from the soulful tunes of Elvis Presley to the thrilling spectacle of WWE wrestling, where she cheered on her favorites, Bret Hart, John Cena, and Roman Reigns, with vigor and joy.

Gloria found pleasure in playing online games, with solitaire being her digital card game of choice. She also had a penchant for fashion, amassing a collection of jewelry and purses that reflected her vibrant personality. Gloria's love for food was no secret, with the McRib holding a special place in her heart as a favored indulgence.

A dedicated fan of the gridiron, Gloria's loyalty was divided among the Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers, and Washington Redskins. Her passion for the game was as much about the community and camaraderie as it was about the excitement on the field.

Above all, Gloria's greatest joy and purpose were found in her role as a mother and grandmother. She raised five children with a heart full of love and wisdom, instilling in them the values of passion and kindness. Her adage, "I love you," was not just a phrase but a promise, a reminder of her boundless affection that she made sure to express before any departure.

Gloria's legacy is one of love and laughter, a testament to a life lived with fervent passion and tender care. She was the embodiment of love, wisdom, and passion, touching the lives of all who had the privilege to know her. Her spirit, a guiding light of warmth and generosity, will continue to inspire those she leaves behind.

As we bid farewell to Gloria Mae Reyos, we celebrate the remarkable woman she was and the indelible mark she has left on this world.
