Gloria graduated from Edmond Memorial High School in 1955. She married Charles Hayes on September 02, 1956. They celebrated their 61st Wedding Anniversary this past September. Of this union, 3 children were born, Chuck, Becky and Ginger.
Gloria was a homemaker. She enjoyed cooking for everyone. She was very persistent in you eating something while at her house. If you ever left hungry, it was your own fault. Gloria made the best sweet tea and cinnamon rolls. She loved making meals from scratch and cooking 3 meals a day. She was a true Southern cook.
Later in life, Gloria and Charles owned their own trucking company, A&E of Guthrie, Inc. For 8 years, Gloria rode with Charles all over the United States. She was his navigation system. On occasion, not a real good one. Gloria would get distracted by all the beautiful country side, busy cities and crazy people.
