Gloria A. Williams, 84, a long-time resident of the Cedar Rapids area, died the 5th of July at UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Living Center West.
Born in 1935 in Oxford Junction, Iowa to Lawrence and Mildred Kuehl. She married Blair Franklin “Pee-Wee” Williams in 1956. He preceded her in death in 1995.
She had a wonderful smile that could light up a room with the most infectious laugh. Gloria was passionate about dancing, especially going out on the town with her husband for a night of ballroom dancing. Out of the five most popular ballroom dances, Gloria loved to waltz. When she wasn’t out dancing the night away, she was spending time with her beloved family and friends socializing while savoring her delish meals. Other times, she enjoyed watching reality television shows, working on puzzles, or crocheting.
Upon retiring she worked as a Butcher for Gile Meats in Cascade.
She will be deeply missed by her son, Lynn (Sheila) Williams of Cedar Rapids, Iowa and a sister, Lawretta Busch of Oxford Junction, Iowa.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, and a sister Donna.
