Obituary of Gloria M. Meyers

Gloria (Newman) Meyers, 88, of Cape May, NJ, went home to be with Jesus on May 24, 2019. Gloria was born on August 24, 1930 in Jersey City, NJ and graduated from William L Dickinson High School in Jersey City, NJ in 1948. Gloria worked at Equitable Insurance, Bell Telephone, RCA (GE) and Import Bazaar. Gloria married William R. Meyers on June 3, 1961.

Gloria was a loving wife and mother of two, who will always be remembered for the many cards and letters of encouragement she sent others over the years. She loved her Lord Jesus, and her family, and cared deeply for all those God put in her life. She was a long-time member of First United Methodist Church in Collingswood, New Jersey, along with the local women's club. Although she suffered many health issues, starting with polio as a child, she never complained, and always put the needs of others above her own. Gloria will be remembered for her unwavering faith in God, selflessness, encouraging words, love for animals and flowers, hard work and loving devotion to her family.

Gloria is survived by her two children, Richard W. Meyers (wife Annie) and Debbie J. (Meyers) Cherry (husband Dana) and her three grandchildren Alex, Danielle, and David, and her longtime companion, Holly, her bird.

A celebration of Gloria's life will be held on June 21, 2019 at 2 PM at Cape Island Baptist Church, 115 Gurney St. Cape May, NJ 08204. All who knew Gloria are invited to come.

John 11:25-26 "Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
