Gloria Louise Marshall

January 5, 1925 — December 24, 2023

Gloria Marshall, affectionately known as Glo or Gloria to her friends and family, passed away peacefully, with family by her side, on December 24, 2023, at the age of 98. Born on January 5, 1925, in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, Gloria lived a rich and fulfilling life, marked by her loving nature, generosity, and an unwavering zest for the beauty of the world around her.


Gloria was the epitome of kindness and grace, traits that were evident to all who had the pleasure of knowing her. She graduated from Vineland High School and soon after began her career as a dedicated secretary for Atlantic Telephone & Telegraph in Manhattan, now known as AT&T, where she worked until she decided to focus on raising her two beloved children. Gloria's role as a homemaker was one she cherished deeply, nurturing her family with love and devotion.


She is survived by her loving family, including daughter Gloria Capuzzi and her partner Marc Fosman, son Kenneth Lankford and his wife Maureen, grandson Kenneth Lankford, granddaughter Nicole Eckert and her husband Timothy, and new baby great-granddaughter Addison Eckert. Gloria will also be fondly remembered by her sister-in-law Dorothy Carin, nephew Jeff Carin, great-niece Gwen and great-nephew, Shane. Her radiant presence will be missed by all who know her, including her cherished friends and extended family. Gloria was predeceased by her parents, Helen and John Yaccarino, her husband Walter Marshall, brother Joseph Carin, and sister and brother-in-law, Helen and Curt Napier.


Gloria's interests were as diverse as they were passionate. She held a deep love for New York City and Broadway theatre, reveling in the magic of live performances and the bustling energy of the city. Gloria loved to travel, with Switzerland and Paris holding special places in her heart. She often reminisced about her winter vacations in Puerto Rico, where she enjoyed the company of her best friends, the Alfano's. Those who knew Gloria will recall her laughter, her impeccable fashion sense of style, and her joy in sharing good food and coffee with friends and family. Her love of animals was profound, and she found great happiness in their companionship.


An integral part of Gloria's life was her community of longtime neighbors and close friends, including Dotty, Nancy, Carmen, and Vicki. Their bond was one of mutual respect and enduring friendship, and their memories will be treasured forever.

Gloria's love for the Christmas season was infectious; she took great delight in trimming her tree, giving thoughtful gifts, and basking in the glow of festive decorations.

Her generosity of spirit and the warmth of her company will be remembered by all who were fortunate enough to cross her path.


Gloria's legacy is one of love and kindness, and her memory will continue to inspire those she has left behind. Her love for life, laughter, and her unwavering kindness and gratitude, have touched many lives, including the devoted and dedicated staff at Sunrise of Edgewater, who took such wonderful and loving care of her while there.

Her spirit will live on in the hearts of her family and friends. Gloria Marshall's story is one of a life well-lived and well-loved, and she will be dearly missed.
