November 15, 1935 - April 11, 2017
Rising Sun, Maryland | Age 81
Gloria M. Feliciano, age 81, of Rising Sun, MD passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. Born on November 15, 1935 in Orocovis, Puerto Rico, Gloria was the daughter of the late Salvador Feliciano and the late Ezequiela Morales.
Gloria was an amazing and talented gardener. She worked in the floral industry her entire life and it was truly her passion. She was a kind, gentle, and humble woman whose smile is still being remembered for how it made others feel. Gloria was funny, loved to dance and spend time with her extended family. Because of her love of family and friends, she always sought to keep peace among them, never one to contribute to gossip or ill will. While she lost her three sons, during her lifetime, she had a wonderful outlook on life, never wavering on her extraordinary faith in God. To say she will be truly missed is not enough to reflect the incredible emptiness left in our lives upon her parting.
Gloria is survived by her loving husband of 64 years, Juan Rivera; daughter, Dinette Rivera; four grandchildren, Arisnette Vega, Tenerife Kahl, Giovann Vega, and Charisse Rivera. She is also survived by her great grandchildren: Destiny Vega, Angel Daniel Vega, Alix Vega, Julianna Kahl, Jazmeir Tilghman, Paris Tilghman and Shalayah Tilghman.
A family coordinated memorial will be held at Elkton Transitional Healthcare Center, 1 Price Drive, Elkton, MD 21921, on Thursday, April 20, 2017 from 5:00-7:00pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made payable to "Dinette Rivera" to help with medical and funeral expenses and sent in care to R.T. Foard Funeral Home, P.A., P.O. Box 248, Rising Sun, MD 21911.
