The Stars will shine so much brighter in the Heavens now that you are there – Daniel O’Donnell. We are so sad to announce the passing of this dear soul who was loved by so many. Gloria Winnifred Cheney passed away at the age of 93 surrounded by those who loved her on November 16th at the George Dumont Hospital. She was born in Moncton to Ralph Cheney of Kennebunk, ME (deceased) and Cora Bell Armstrong of Moncton (deceased).

Gloria received her business training at Success Business College that enabled her to apply for a position at CN – an arrangement that lasted 37 years, starting at the Express office and retiring in 1980 from CN Accounting Department.

She was a past Worthy Matron of Frank H. Tingley, Chapter No. 5 Order of the Eastern Star (1978 – 1979) and a member since 1971.

Spencer Memorial Home with 22 years’ service; Past President of the Peoples Park Tower and Camden Park Terrace Seniors Club 205 and Past Treasurer of the Peoples Park Tower Seniors Club 218. She was one of three recipients of the Mayor’s Senior Advisory Award as Volunteer of the year for the City of Moncton in 2007. This award was presented to her by Mayor Lorne Mitton at Crandall University. She was an amazing person and we will all miss her so very much. She was a woman of strong Faith and a life long member of First Baptist Church.
