Gloria Lynn Mixter, aged 62, of Wyoming, went home peacefully on Wednesday, May 28, 2014. She was surrounded with love from her children, her brothers and sisters, and her friends. Gloria, to her last days, had a vibrant spirit. She was passionate, joyful, and full of love for her children, grandchild, family, and friends. She was a devoted Christian and found her home and family at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. Googa, as she was known to her family, cherished working in her garden. The radiant colors that she cultivated each year reflected the beauty of her soul. Her children were her life. Like the beautiful flowers she grew each year, she nurtured and tended to her children, instilling the same loving spirit she emanated. Her children soaked up her love and caring like her blossoms absorbed the warm sun. She will once again join the side of her loving mother, Betty, and her father, Joseph. She is survived by her children, John (Melissa) Mixter, Karen (Michael) Lewis; granddaughter, Emma Lynn; brothers, John (Ruth) Racine, Michael (Jill) Racine; sister, Karen (Louis) Jacobson; and several nieces and nephews.
