Sr. Gloria Jean Petrone, aci

October 31, 1941 - May 8, 2024


Sr. Gloria Petrone, aci, 82, a member of the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, died peacefully on May 8th, surrounded by Handmaids and her family in Saint Joseph Villa.


Sr. Gloria was a daughter to the late Helen and Roque Petrone. She met the Handmaids during formative years at Ancilla Domini Academy and entered the convent soon after graduation in 1959. With a M.Sc. in Biology, she was a gifted teacher and influenced many young lives through schools in Philadelphia, Miami and Dublin, Ireland. Sr. Gloria was passionate about solidarity with those living on the margins, especially in El Salvador where she coordinated a volunteer ministry with Project Fiat. Later in Miami, she dedicated herself to caring for those in Camillus House who were homeless, hungry and forgotten. Sr. Gloria is remembered for her joyful and generous spirit. She is survived by her Handmaid community and a loving extended family.


A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on May 29th at 10:30 AM at Saint Joseph Villa Chapel, 110 Wissahickon Ave., Flourtown, PA 19031. Relatives and friends are invited for Visitation preceding the Mass beginning at 9:00 AM.
