A resident of Rockland Place for the past four-and-one-half years, Gloria raised her family in Wayne, New Jersey, later taking great pleasure in entertaining family and friends in her Mantoloking home at the Jersey Shore.
Preceded in death by her husband, John E. Gambol, in 2001, Mrs. Gambol is survived by her three children, John, Barb and Lee, their respective spouses, and a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
