She was born in Abilene, TX, to Barbara and Rex Trusler on January 16, 1944. Gloria married her love, Tom David Horrell on June 15, 1962, in Abilene, TX.

Gloria was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was a Defender, a Protector, and "Mama bear" to family and friends. She always smelled so wonderful, she loved perfume and wasn't bashful when she put it on. Gloria was a florist for many years and made the most beautiful flower arrangements, and loved helping family and friends with their weddings, baby showers, and Homecoming mums. Gloria was a great cook, and her enchiladas were the "bomb". She was always ready to help anyone in need. Gloria loved to meet and get to know people, no one was a stranger for long. Mom, you will forever be missed.
