Gloria Ashley Hayes, July 7, 1931 - December 29, 2012.
The second of eight children born to Edwin and Opal Ashley in Gloversville, New York, in 1931, Gloria is survived by her son, Mark Hayes; her beautiful grand and great-grandchildren of beloved passed daughter, Catherine; her sisters, Nancy Koski, Charlene Atkins, Valerie Bommarito and Arlinda Migon; and many nieces and nephews; and stepson, Manny Hayes. Gloria loved her children, beaches, roses, orchids and her pets, Oreo and Mickey. She was well respected in the Miami and Homestead, Florida legal community as a paralegal for 40 years. Her smile and laughter will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know her. Born in the worst years of the Great Depression, she endured a life of challenge, including four marriages, but still managed to have a smile and blue eyed twinkle for loved ones, friends and strangers. Our family and friends will miss her dearly and think of her every day for the rest of our lives.
