Gloria Catherine "Granny" "Nanny Glo" Poree´ peacefully transitioned on March 9, 2021, at the beautiful age of 96 years old in New Orleans, LA. Gloria was born on April 30, 1924 to the late Clarence Stanley and Pauline Lemoine Williams. She married the love of her life, the late Clarence Poree in 1948. With complete dedication, she was passionate about taking care of her husband and children, through nurtured care. Calvin and Glo loved each other deeply and remained dedicated throughout their 35 years of marriage until Calvin was called home on January 17, 1985. That union brought forth seven sons. She was always adored and loved by all her grandchildren and enjoyed their company, sharing meals, watching old movies or simply watching and listening to old songs, particularly her favorite artist, Patsy Cline, "Crazy" and "Stand by Your Man"! But most of all a good card game of pitty pat was always at the top of her list. On Tuesday, March 9, 2021, Gloria went home to be with her Heavenly Father. Loved ones left to cherish her extraordinary life and memories are six sons, Jeffrey (Carol), Kirby (Clarissa), Kimberly (JoAnn), Keith, Kerry, and Jayce (Sandy); her dedicated and loving brother, Willie Wilson (Ora Lee), sister-n-law, Barbara Williams, 16 grandchildren, Jeffrey, John, Robbie, Marsh, Kirby, Ryan, Megan, Kim, Corey, Craig, Catherine, Sarah, Adam, Kevin, Jayce & Sadie, and 14 great grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, godchildren and other friends too numerous to name. Gloria was preceded in death by her devoted parents, Clarence and Pauline, Baby Poree, beloved husband, Calvin, grandson, Randy, brother Charles (Eunice); brother, Stanley; sister, Victoria (Merlin) Hubbard; sister, Loyce Ann D'Aunoy, brothers-in-law, Alvin Poree (Katherine) and Roland D'Aunoy.
