Gloria Traylor

Gloria Traylor

January 28, 1960 – February 14, 2009

 

 Remembrance with Love

Gloria Traylor was born in 1960 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland to John Traylor and Vivian Blakeney Traylor. Mr. and Mrs. Traylor met at the medical facility when Mrs. Traylor was providing nursing care to Mr. Traylor’s father. Gloria Traylor passed last week at 49 years of age.

Gloria attended Daniel Boone Elementary, Alexander Graham Bell Junior High, and Morris High school, all in San Diego where she was raised. She earned her Ward Clerk Certificate from San Diego City College.

She was always a happy person with a ‘profound gift of gab’ to Gloria no one was a stranger for long. She possessed the skill to make others feel at home and supremely comfortable. Gloria was a sincere and honest friend to the friendless, and everyone else as well. She had a heart of gold, and was over abundant with generosity.

Gloria was first married to Darrell Beal where they resided in Hawaii. At her time of passing, she was married to Arthur Calvin.

Gloria Traylor’s life revolved around her: family, daughters Vivian and Diamond and sons Gregory and Cedric, and the apple of her eye her grandson Martavion. She is succeeded in life by loving members of her family Vivian Blakeney Traylor, brother John Jr., sister Lisa, and her children.

She was preceded in death by father John Traylor Sr. and her brother David Traylor.

Gloria will be lovingly remembered forever by those who loved her and those she loved.

DON’T CRY FOR ME, I JUST GOT A CHANGE OF ADDRESS

 Please be advised that I have moved.  I received a call the other day from God, and he informed me that my new home was completed.  I know that my mansion needed some finishing touches and that Jesus Christ had to inspect it and give me approval. On 14 Feb 2009 he let me know that my mansion was complete and that I could move in.  So, He told me go ahead and changes my address.  Well, my new home is finished and what a sight to behold.  It is located on a exclusive estate area behind a beautiful pearly gate.  Of course you know the streets are paved with gold and everyday is Sunday, just like you have been told. Trees of fruit grace my garden here I can walk and talk with my Master with out a worry or care. There is peace here, joy, happiness and no pain or heartache, strife or discontent, only sweet serenity.  I can dine at the Master’s bountiful table and listen to a heavenly choir. And best of all, my heavenly Father is here in all glory: and oh yes, I have my own designer here who has fitted me with my very own white robe and my very own wings.  I could go on and on about my new home, but instead I am going to pray that you get to move here yourself one day.  My new address is 100 Heavenly Circle, New Heaven, New Earth 24-7 24-7.  

PS.
 I don’t’ have a telephone, but you can always call on God.  If you don’t know his number, read your Bible; it is listed on every page.

I KNOW THAT YOU AND JESUS HAVE ALOT IN COMMON FOR THAT REASON. I WILL SEE YOU WHEN I GET TO HEAVEN.

    You have always made me laugh and made my day better, I will miss that very much. Because of you I became a better person for your advice you gave me when we have our 1-2hr convo on the phone craking up about the stupid things I did the night before hahaha. You will always be in my heart and the kids will miss you very much, especially Lisa. You will always be grandma to my children and my moms. I promise I will be in control and prove to you that everything you told me didnt go in one and out the other. I love you “moms” “Mama G” “grandma” with your crazy self. You will always have a special place in my heart and I will try my hardest to do my part to make sure your family is safe and tooken care of as I know you will do the same for mine. I promise I will keep a open mind and make good decisions. I promise I will keep Mellissa under control and grab a steering wheel when i feel she is bouts to show up haha. Love you Gloria and see you when its my time.

    Momma G, there are no words to express how I feel. All I can say is that you are missed and loved so deeply. We all miss you so much, you have touched our hearts and our lives in such a deep and tender way. I wanted to speak but I just could not form the words and I felt my legs get weak. You have taught me so much, and I shall take heed to every lesson you have blessed me to learn. The best lesson you taught me was how to unconditionally love.

    This family won’t be the same without you. You have been the rock and the glue of this family. Vivian and I will do our best to make sure the family is taken care of. We miss you and if it is within Gods will we shall see you again.
    I love you.

  • Larissa Jackson says:

    I am glad I had the chance to meet you Mama G, even if it wasn’t long enough. I can still hear you saying, “DON’T CALL ME GLORIA, YOU BETTER CALL ME MAMA G!” lol… You are a wonderful, caring, and loving person. The first time I met you, I fell in love with you. You were always the life of the party and kept me laughing. You will be missed very much.. I know you are with God right now and you will be watching over all of us.

  • Cedric Beal says:

    Dear mother, I hope your having the time of your life up there in heaven. I’ll never forget those grand days we spent together when you we’re with us. I’m doing ok as far as my life goes on, but it feels different without you. Love you forever and for all time.

  • Desta Springer says:

    Glory, I just dont know what to say, words can not express how much you are missed and loved, how much you touched us all. You kept us all with a smile made us laugh when we needed it and had great words of advice when we needed those to. I wish i had more time to spend with you but i know Lord willing we will see each other again. I keep you and your family in my prayers. Love ya Glory!
