Gloria Vesely Obituary, Death –Gloria Ochoa Vesely, born on December 13, 1931, was a vibrant soul who lived life to the fullest. She passed away at the age of 91, peacefully in her Fontana, CA home on September 5, 2023. Reuniting in heaven with her loving late husband, Tom Vesely, she transitioned to a heavenly home prepared and joyfully occupied by their eternal love.
Grandma Gloria, as she was affectionately known, was a force of nature. She possessed a zest for life that was truly infectious. Her passions were many, including painting, antique collecting, dancing, and laughter. With a mischievous sense of humor, she wasn’t afraid to poke fun when it was deserved. Above all, she was renowned for her unwavering adoration of Frank Sinatra, proudly holding the title of his biggest fan.
Quick-witted and no-nonsense, Grandma Gloria’s heart was as immense as her spirit. She had an unparalleled love for her family, embracing each member with open arms. Her generosity knew no bounds, and she willingly devoted her time to various causes. For years, she selflessly volunteered at her local Catholic Church, and she assisted friends in cultivating and tending to their beautiful gardens.
Visiting her grandparents’ home was a joyous experience filled with laughter, love, and cherished memories. As a child, attending her Bowling League Nights was an exciting treat. Her team, comprised of uncles and coworkers, was the embodiment of fun. You couldn’t help but look forward to the day you’d be old enough to join her team and share a cold beer.
Family reunions in Azusa, CA were a highlight, with epic volleyball, horseshoe, and softball competitions that brought the family together. Regardless of the occasion, time, or place, Grandma Gloria could always be found with a smile on her face, cracking jokes, and savoring her favorite beer, Coors Banquet.
In celebrating her life, we remember Grandma Gloria as a vivacious, spirited, and loving soul. She leaves behind a legacy of laughter, warmth, and cherished moments that will forever be etched in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have known her. Rest in peace, dear Grandma Gloria, for your spirit and love will continue to shine brightly in our lives.
