Gloria Ann (Hartman) Krzysica April 19, 1951 - April 23, 2017

Gloria Ann (Hartman) Krzysica, 66, of Whitehall, peacefully passed away on Sunday, April 23, 2017. Gloria was the wife of Michael Krzysica, with whom in October they celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary. Born in Allentown on April 19, 1951, Gloria was a proud 1969 graduate of Dieruff High School. Gloria happily settled in as a homemaker, and became known by family and friends to have the talent and creativity to cook some of the most amazing gourmet dinners around. Gloria always was the life of the party, loved to dance and laugh, and her bombshell beauty, gorgeous smile and infectious spirit turned all eyes to her when she entered any room.

Survivors: Gloria’s two most prized accomplishments are her children. Every day she was over-the-moon proud of her son, Matthew Glose (wife Andrea) of Upper Macungie Township; and her daughter, Jennifer Glose of Upper Macungie Township. Gloria also was blessed with the lights of her life, her grandchildren: Grandsons Noah Erlemann and Ryan Glose; and granddaughter Linsey Erlemann. She always looked forward to making a complete fool of herself at any chance she could get while playing with her grandchildren, including some hysterical jamming sessions of Guitar Hero and Just Dance.

Gloria also is survived by her loving mother, Mary (Dex) Hartman of Allentown; brother, Thomas Hartman of Allentown; and sister, Donna (Hartman) Hersch of Lower Macungie Township; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Gloria is pre-deceased by her father, Robert S. Hartman.
