Gloria Crites Obituary (from funeral)


This obituary was read by Rev. Randy Morrison, from my parent’s church, Twin Rivers Worship Center during my mother’s funeral on Jan. 25.

Eugene and Betty Snider Querry were blessed with a daughter, Gloria Ann Querry, on November 10, 1949, in Overland, MO. Gloria grew up and married a handsome young man named Edwin Crites on August 16, 1968, in Bridgeton, MO. Gloria & Ed (as we all know him) were blessed with three children. Their first child was Dana. Dana is married to Ken Mitchell. Dana & Ken reside in Fenton, MO with their two sons, Timothy & Steven Mitchell. Their second child was Sonia. Sonia is married to Brett Coleman. Sonia & Brett reside in Ballwin, MO. Their third child was Douglas. Doug lives in St. Louis, MO. Gloria has four siblings. Gene Querry of Los Angeles, CA, Randy & Denise Querry of Ballwin, MO, Pam & Mickie Weatherford of Overland, MO and Joyce & Jim Fox of St. Peters, MO.

Gloria was preceded in death by her parents.

Gloria enjoyed spending time with her family and serving God. Her hobbies included crafts, cross stitching, jewelry making, designing, decorating, photography, making her own digital slideshows and growing flowers.

Gloria Crites who lived 58 years, 2 months and 11 days was serenaded by angels in her Manchester, MO home, very early on Monday, January 21, 2008. She was escorted to her recently completed mansion, were she is now residing, preparing to welcome the rest of us.
Gloria will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

To Gloria’s family: Gloria was my bridesmaid in 1967. We went to church together in University City. Bro. Roam was our pastor. I was invited to sleepovers and Sunday afternoons at the Querry house where we giggled, fussed with our long hair, and talked over all our boy problems. I’m so sorry I didn’t know of her passing. I did know her family was a dream come true from those teenage daydreams we shared. I hope she knew I thought of her often and feel blessed to have shared our journey for a while.
