A Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 PM on Friday, April 26, 2024 in the Loganville Chapel of Tim Stewart Funeral Home with Rev. Terry Dotson officiating.

Gloria was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was a wonderful mother who was always there for her family. She gracefully intertwined motherhood and friendship seamlessly for her children throughout their lives. Gloria enjoyed spending time with her family and always made the family home a safe and loving nest for her family. Gloria will be profoundly missed, but her spirit will continue to guide and inspire all who were blessed to know her.

In her younger years, Gloria worked at The Bank of Loganville where she met her late husband, Arthur after Arthur’s sisters and Gloria’s cousin had sent Arthur to the bank purposefully to meet the young, pretty and kind teller behind the counter. The rest is history…Arthur and Gloria later married and successfully spent 59 loving years together. Later, Arthur and Gloria purchased and managed many properties on Main Street in downtown Loganville where Gloria spent many years walking to and from Edna’s Beauty Shop, where Gloria’s mother and Aunt Clarice spent many hours perming and cutting the local women’s hair.

Gloria was preceded in death by her loving husband of 59 years, Arthur DeWeese Morris; daughter, Deborah Jean Webb; sons-in-law, Bill Preisendanz and James Murphy; and parents, Charles Alfred and Edna Ruth (Perry) Conner; and Harold Webb. She is survived by her daughters, Angie Webb Preisendanz and Christy Morris O’Hara; grandchildren, Joshua O’Hara and Conner O’Hara; beloved puppy, Lola; many loving cousins; numerous family and friends.
