Obituary

Gloria L. Christie (nee DiCrecchio), 91, of Drexel Hill, PA. Born on January 27, 1930 and passed away July 23, 2021.

Gloria was the daughter of the late Eugene and Francesca (DiMuzio) DiCrecchio, sister of the late Carmen DiChrecchio, Rose Miller (DiCrecchio), Joseph DiCrecchio and mother of the late Richard Christie.

She is survived by her sons, William (Carol), Michael (Joan), and her daughter in law, Laurelle. Cherished Grandmother of Stacy (Nelson), Joseph (Paige), Michele, Richard (Amanda), Shane, Kellie (Zach) Vandyke, Kevin and Kyle. Great Grandmother of William, Preston, Cayden, Jason, Carter, Jackson and many nieces and nephews.

Gloria was a graduate of Upper Darby High School, class of 1948. She raised and supported her three boys as a hairdresser and would eventually open her own beauty shop, an accomplishment she was very proud of. Later she was employed by Super Fresh in the fresh fruit and flower department. Gloria then worked for the Acme Market until she retired a few months ago at the age of 91.

In her younger years, she was an avid bowler and enjoyed traveling the United States with her bowling league. Gloria had a zest for life, always ready for a party and went anywhere she was invited. Besides playing the slots at the casinos, she enjoyed being surrounded by young people. Most of all, she loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. However, her proudest accomplishment in the life was being the mother of her three sons. She will be truly missed.
