Gloria L. Bosworth

Age 84, of Lansing, MI, passed away peacefully at home on November 1, 2022.

After her adoption, she made the most of her life. Retired from the State of Michigan, Gloria enjoyed her pets, being active, and spending time with her many friends.

Gloria delivered motor homes, RVs, and travel trailers across the U.S. She loved music, and could have been an a cappella singer. She was a very compassionate, caring and honest woman who wasn’t afraid to speak her mind!

Mom and I shared many adventures. She was my mentor, greatest supporter, and best friend from day one.

She is survived by son Douglas of Lansing, son Robert of Kingman, AZ, and daughter Beverly of Lansing. She was preceded in death by her adoptive parents, biological parents, two ex-husbands, and a sister. She will be deeply missed.

All services will be private. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Capital Area Humane Society.

Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Holt/Delhi Chapel.

Mom, we may have had differences, argued, had polar opposite opinions and disagreed on a lot of unimportant things. But I’m convinced it’s because in many ways we were alike. Our relationship was between you and me. I had opportunities you didn’t and chances you didn’t because you gave them to me. I wish you had realized we didn’t have to always agree, and that our differences weren’t important and that we did not start out together easily. All that I am I owe to you, mom. Rest easy…you never realized how much you were loved. Beverly

Gloria’s adopted mom Ethel, lived in the house next door when we moved around the block (we lived on Barnes Ave. for 5 years first)..Her mom was older and had “bats” often in the house and would call my husband to come and shoo them out. Gloria was 3 years older than I and went to the Sexton high school, as I and my husband did, but she lived up north when we moved to Berten St. When Gloria returned to Lansing, she helped me with “Neighborhood Watch”., and assisted with the yearly “Neighborhood in Bloom”. She surely loved her cats and rescued as many as possible. Her son Doug is special and helped his mom daily, and also our neighbors when he could, and was his mom’s best friend,. Everyone should be fortunate to have a son like him!!! I hate seeing her house all dark and will miss her every day. I am sad for her family.
