Born on January 21, 1928, in New York to Mary (Mitzi) and Jacob (Jack) Erceg, Gloria grew up in Avenel, NJ. She worked as a secretary in New York City before moving to Washington, D.C., where she met her husband, John. They moved to California while John earned his degree to become a Veterinarian. Shortly after, they returned home to New Jersey, where she was a long time resident of Old Bridge.

She was predeceased by her husband in 2010.

Gloria is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, John and Susie, and her two beloved grandchildren, Julia and Jack, all of Millstone Township; her brother, Mitchell, of Edison, and three nieces, Michelle and Bobby Giordano, Jacquee and Kenny Markel and Janine and Joe Apruzzese.
