Gloria retired as Office Manager from Donnell Dental Lab in O’Fallon, after 25 years. She was happiest when all her kids and grandkids came over to celebrate. They didn’t need a reason to get together, they just enjoyed sharing a meal together – as long as Grandma made deviled eggs!

Thomas Beck of Columbia, step-daughter Laura (Kevin) Hettenhausen of Highland; brother Thomas (Marylaine) Donnell of O’Fallon, and many great-nephews, -nieces, and many friends.

Gloria was preceded in death by her first husband Joseph Piek and her second husband Bob Beck, and her parents John and Annie Donnell.
