Passing of Ms. Gloria Rose


It is with great sadness that the Ladies of Charity, Archdiocese of Washington DC inform us of the passing of Ms. Gloria Rose. She went home to be with the Father in Heaven on Friday, October 8, 2021. Gloria was a very active and dedicated member of the St. Margaret of Scotland Ladies of Charity for many years. She not only served as the President, but was very instrumental in forming the Junior Ladies of Charity there as well.

Gloria was a member of the LOC for over thirty years serving at the Parish, County, Archdiocesan and LCUSA Regional levels of the association. She served as the Middle Atlantic Regional Representative in the early 1990’s. More recently, she served on the ADW Board of Directors for nearly two decades as the Co-Moderator for the JLOC and ADW Archivist. Her service in helping those less fortunate was second to none. Gloria will be missed, but never forgotten.

  6. What a loss for us but a wonderful addition to the Heavenly Kingdom! We who shared the journey with Gloria are truly blessed to have known her, laughed with her and been inspired by her. Whenever we spoke, she would remind me of the picture she kept on her desk taken during the 2007 National Assembly here in St. Louis. A picture of herself, my mom, Alma and I which was taken after a Cardinal’s game at Busch Stadium. . Thank you for just being yourself, sharing your magnificent smile and being part of my life!
