GLORIA WRIGHT SCRIBNER - COLCHESTER – Gloria Wright Scribner of Colchester, passed away after a long and wonderful life, at the age of 89 on Monday, July 27, 2020.

Gloria was born in Burlington, VT on December 6, 1930, the youngest of seven children of the late John and Letitia Loughead Wright of Burlington. She was raised in Burlington, graduated in 1948 from the Burlington High School, and worked for Abrahams Drug Store in Burlington between 1948 and 1952.

In 1948 she met her beloved husband of 54 years, Charles M. Scribner and was married to her true soul mate on August 11, 1950. Making Colchester her home since her marriage, she had always been active in her local church and community, volunteering many hours with the Meals on Wheels Program, Transportation for the Fletcher Allen Hospital, working the Colchester Polls, as well as holding the title of Lister and Justice of the Peace for the Town. In her later years, she continued her volunteering efforts in many capacities for the Ronald McDonald House and with the North Avenue Alliance Church.

She enjoyed her role as mother and homemaker. Family always came first with Gloria, where home was the gathering place for many wonderful meals with family and friends. She loved cooking and often shared her baked goods, especially her baked beans, at many family and church gatherings. She loved her family and viewed her most admirable achievement as being a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

She was a devoted and active member of North Avenue Alliance Church, serving for over 50 years, enjoyed hosting bible studies, shopping and quilting. For Gloria, quilting provided her another way to give back to her community by making several quilts for the Ronald McDonald House and CARE-NET.

She is survived by her son, Stephen E. Scribner (Nancy) of Cabot, VT; grandchildren, Melissa Scribner and Eric Scribner (Tricia) of Cabot, VT, Katylyn (Katy) of Colchester, VT, and Jeremiah (Jed) Ruhl of Underhill, VT; step grandchildren, Mike DeForge (Sonya) of Savannah, TN, and Michelle McCall (Chris) of Panama, FL; great grandchildren, Hayley Giard, Hunter Baker, Abigail and Caleb Scribner; step great-grandchildren, Ryleigh and Matt DeForge, and Alexis and Arielle McCall. She also is survived by a large extended family, many beloved, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, as well as all who called her Ma.

Gloria was predeceased by her parents; husband, Charles M. Scribner; daughters, Kelly Scribner and Brenda Scribner DeForge; Son in-law, David DeForge; brothers, William “Ed”, John “Jack” and Wilfred Wright; and sisters, Alice Wright, Gladys Wright Sowman and Ivy Wright Dunlap Butcher.

I have such great memories of Mrs. Scribner, from being down on the farm eating molasses cookies, swimming in the pool, or playing with all the Hectors, that I never realized as a child were different dogs, to running around town in her truck with the different horns. She was a sweet lady who always enjoyed getting a hug from me. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. May she rest in peace with Charlie.

Dear Katy and Jed,
I watched your grandmother's funeral online and was surely with you in spirit. She was certainly an outstanding woman, and I know your Mom and my brother David loved her so much! It was good to get a glimpse of you both on the video and I send my prayers and love!

To all of Gloria's family - I was so saddened to hear of her passing. She was a wonderful woman - a family woman and a woman of faith! I attempted to leave a message two days ago, but it didn't go through. And now I am glad, in that I was able to participate in her celebration of life (albeit remotely), and am able to reflect on everyone else's wonderful memories. as well. I can only imagine her joyful reunion with her God, her Charlie, her daughters, her siblings, and my brother, David. Please know that we are keeping all of you in our healing thoughts and prayers as you journey through this difficult time. May you take comfort in your memories, and realizations of just how many people she touched and helped in her own life. God bless you all!

Debby (DeForge) Heyer
