Patricia Gloria

Patricia G. Gloria, 68, of China Spring, passed away August 15, 2022, at Post Acute Medical Center in New Braunfels. She was surrounded with love from her son and partner after a long battle with an illness at her time of her passing.

To honor Patricia’s memory a memorial will be held at Lake Shore Funeral Home in Waco 10am Saturday, August 20th.

Pat was born in Dallas December 19th, 1953, to Bill and Nadine (Wortham) Prince. She attended W.W. Samuell High School. She worked as a mortgage underwriter for 25 years.

Pat and Pete Gloria were married August 26th, 1986. They eventually settled in China Spring and built a house together, raising Pat’s son, Eric, and their son, JP, and spent time with her parents.

Pat took care of others—her father and mother, sons, husband, and beautiful grandchildren. Pat is remembered for her bright sense of humor and red hair. She was always someone who spoke her mind, was more generous to others than herself, and taught those around her to love and to laugh a little harder.

She was preceded in death by her son, David; and her father, Bill Prince.

Patricia is survived by her partner, Pete Gloria of China Spring; sons, JP (wife Sandra) Gloria of New Braunfels and Eric Procter of Corsicana; mother, Nadine Prince of China Spring; brother, Tim Prince of China Spring; granddaughters, Audrey and Evangeline Gloria of New Braunfels; niece, Adrianne Prince of Dallas.

Our cherished Patricia – daughter, partner, mother, sister, and friend – is at last at peace. We love you.

Place of Service: Lake Shore Funeral Home Chapel , 5201 Steinbeck Bend; Waco, TX 76708

  1. My prayers and condolences are with you all. What a special woman Patricia was.
    Patricia, my funny, exciting, sweet friend. How I cherish the memories we made and the fun we had. What a great Mom you are. Always placed your kids first. When conversations include high school years, you are always in my stories. You brought laughter to me and everyone else daily. Nothing stood in our way. If we wanted it, we reached for it. My Mom and Daddy thought the world of you . You showed them your caring side and made them laugh like you did with all of us. My heart hurts but that is for me; you are free and celebrating with David and Bill. Love you, Patricia. Peace.
