In Loving Memory ~
Gloria Eleine Powszedny (formally Myers; Nickerson) passed away unexpectedly in the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 18th, 2023, at North Island Hospital, in Campbell River. Her loving husband Nikita "Nick" was by her side.
Gloria was born May 14th, 1943 in Quebec. She was a devoted saint, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, and friend to many.

Gloria was an inspiration to so many. She loved God with all of her heart and was true example of a Godly woman. Her passion for loving people was evident. Her smile and laugh could light up a room.
