In 1977, she moved to the Jersey shore (Atlantic City), where she worked at Harrah's Casino. Gloria enjoyed daily walks on the boardwalk, playing the slot machines or Blackjack table, and relaxing on the beach with a good book. She also loved family gatherings where she was often the "life of the party". Gloria enjoyed her life and cheerfully embraced every day.
