Gloria was the first born child to Roy and Elnora Herrmann in Luverne, Minnesota, February 10, 1942.  She was married to Georg Zarb June 24, 1997.  She worked for Canon Corporation and Mr. Green Lawn Care until retirement.

Gloria was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who above all enjoyed spending tme with her family.  She attended many of her grandchildren's football, field hockey, lacrosse, and soccer games.  Gloria loved baking cookies, breads, and trail mix for all o her loved ones.  Whenever Gloria entered a room, you were sure to be met with a big hug and a "Hello Sweetie".  Gloria especially loved organizing and hosting the families annual Christmas gathering every year.  Gloria loved her family deeply and regardless of the distance she stayed close: talking to her sister Karen daily and many visits to Arizona to see her sister Jeannie.  She was passionate about sharing her time and talents as a member of St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church.
