Gloria Sue Williams Petersen, age of 78, lived in Houston, Texas and was blessed to pass in her own home as she had wished at 7:45am on the 8th day of January 2018. She was surrounded by her family and friends in her final days. She was born on August 10, 1939 to her parents Willie and Exa D. Williams in Joaquin, Texas. She was the widow of Louis G. “Pete” Petersen. She is survived by her daughter Jan and her husband Charles Doest , her son Gerald Smith and his fiancé Denice, her 3 stepchildren Louis Jr., John D. , and Christie. She was a grandmother of 9, a great-grandmother of 12, she was also survived by her friend and care taker Chelsea. She was a friend and confidant to many.  She was full of laughter and very strong willed. She loved to listen to old country music and to  watch the grand old opry with Charles on Saturday nights with a nice cup of ice cream.

If you ever went to her home, she would make sure you felt welcome and would always have something cooking that would leave you satisfied. She loved to travel with her husband.

Gloria will be missed, but never forgotten.
