Gloria Patricia Olson

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Gloria with her family by her side. Survived by husband David of 43 years. Deeply loved mother to Denise (David) and Jaime (Brad) and her little dog Mya. Grandmother to Kelsa, Adel, Brynn, Andrew and Ethan. Survived by her brothers Dan McNeil (Sandy), Wayne (Carol), nephews Dan and Jim and nieces Tammy (Craig), and Wendy. Pre-deceased by brother Bill Jr. and parents Bill and Christine McNeil.

The moment that you died

my heart was torn in two

one side filled with heartache

the other side died with you.

I often lie awake at night

when the world is fast asleep, and

take a walk down memory lane

with tears upon my cheeks.

Remembering you is easy

I do it every day

but missing you is heartache

that never goes away.

I hold you tightly within my heart

and there you will remain

until the joyous day arrives

that we will meet again.

Heartfelt thanks to all of those who knew and loved Gloria, and supported the family through this extremely difficult time.

A celebration of Gloria’s life will be held at the Qualicum First Nations’ band hall on Sunday, October 4th at 1 pm. Address: 5859 River Road, Qualicum Beach. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the North Island Wildlife Recovery Association.
