  1. Greetings,
    I am saddened to learn of that death if Mrs. Gloria McGivney. She was my godmother and a dear friend of my aunt Lula Davis. I had her on my mind for some time and decided to google her name. I’m sorry we didn’t keep in touch better.
    My thoughts and prayers with her family.

    Mary J. Truesdale-Jenkins
