Gloria Jean Lunsford, age 59, of Midland, passed peacefully at home, in her sleep, on Friday morning, July 17, 2020.
Born in Wilmington, on December 14, 1960, she was the daughter of Linda E. Livingston Inlow (Donald E.) Curtis of Wilmington and Richard Dale (Anna B.) Inlow of Midland.
A 1979 graduate of Blanchester High School, Gloria was currently working in maintenance and engineering services at Airborne.
Her friends and family would describe her as patient, kind, loving, caring and hard working. Her son in-law described her as the toughest and sweetest person he ever knew. Gloria cherished her family and, starting at an early age, always took care of everyone around her. One of her siblings referred to her as “the best of the bunch”. She loved her grandchildren and never missed an opportunity to spend time with them. Gloria lived a life that Christ would be proud of and we know she now walks with the angels.
She is survived by her husband, Zane Lunsford of Midland.
Also left to cherish her memory is their daughter and son in-law, Garie and Ryan Briggs, and their children, Andrew Kenneth and Demi Jean Briggs.
