Gloria P. Greer, 90, died peacefully Sept. 12, 2016.

Gloria was always ready to have a party for a birthday, a holiday or anything. She loved to cook and bake. Her baking talents even won her a few blue ribbons at the Minnesota State Fair for her beautiful and delicious Christmas cookies. She was a gifted oil painter, loved many crafts and enjoyed trips to the casino with her good friend Pat.

Gloria lived in Como Park and Roseville before living at Lyngblomsten Care Center during her last nine months. There she was lovingly cared for by the wonderful staff in the “Lund neighborhood.”

She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard; her parents, Charles and Lucille Cassidy; and brothers, James and Charles.

She is survived by her daughter, Michele, and son-in-law, James Ventura. She is also survived by her friends Patricia Hasse and John and Nancy Hendrickson, who made it possible for Gloria to live in her home for a long time.

Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated Sept. 19 at Holy Childhood Catholic Church, with interment at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
