Gloria E. Smith, 94, of Ashland, and formerly of Burgettstown, PA., passed away Wednesday evening, December 18, 2019, at Lutheran Village of Ashland.

Gloria was born in Brooklyn, New York on February 23, 1925, to the late Frank R. and Minna (Steinhoff) England.

After leaving NYU, work in New York City and life in Amityville, Long Island, Gloria joined her beloved husband Howard in western Pennsylvania. Together they built a home, family farm and herd of registered Angus cattle.

Gloria was a member of the Cross Creek Presbyterian Church where she faithfully taught Sunday School, participated in many church organizations, and sang in the choir. She was also an active member of the Cattlemen’s Association, State Grange and served as a 4-H leader. She was an accomplished seamstress, avid reader, and leader in the community. While living in Ashland, Gloria attended the Trinity Lutheran Church and enjoyed attending school programs, concerts and athletic events of great grandchildren.

On May 4, 1946, Gloria was married to Howard Smith who preceded her in death on December 5, 2012. She is survived by three daughters, Kathleen Copeland of Greeneville, TN; Cheryl (Richard) Stoddard of Argenta, IL; and Pamela (David) Potter of Ashland. Also surviving are 7 grandchildren, Matthew Copeland, Heather (Brian) Craven, Gavin (Kristen) Stoddard, Ian (Julia) Stoddard, Colin Stoddard, Michael Fisk and Lindsey (Scott) Frank and 14 great grandchildren.

Friends are invited to informal calling hours with Gloria’s family in the Trinity Lutheran Church home on Thursday afternoon, December 26, 2019 between 2 and 4 p.m. A prayer offering, led by the Rev. Kevin McClain will take place at 3:00 p.m. in the church home. Funeral and interment will take place in Pennsylvania at the Cross Creek Church and Cemetery on Saturday, December 28, 2019.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions may be made to the Hayesville-Vermillion Fire Department or to the Hillsdale Cares Program (Steve or Cindy Young respectively, 75 W. Main Street, Hayesville, OH 44838).
