Gloria Johnson Our dear Gloria came into the world in May of 1956. Born to Miles and Joyce Johnson in Decorah, Iowa. She had one sister, Lynne. She grew up in San Luis Obispo, Calif., where she attended high school and graduated in 1974. She still has many friends from her class. She received a Master's in Counseling from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. She worked as an Educational Consultant with a foster care agency for 14 years. She helped implement a program at her church in Arizona to provide service dogs to veterans with PTSD and was working to help the hearing impaired as well. She loved her family and was the caregiver of her mother. She was a very loving and kind person, always trying to encourage others. She made her profession of faith as a Christian at the age of 12 and held on to her faith in the Lord always. She also loved her dog, JoJo. She will be missed deeply by her mother, Joyce Johnson; sister, Lynne (Pat) Rodriguez, and nieces, Amy (Jose) Arenas and Jenny (Ryan) Ingram, as well as great-nieces and nephews: Ella, Ryder, Miles, Nico and Callie. She was beloved by all and used mightily by our Lord.
