To Our Momma Your work on this earth is complete, rejoice in Your healed and renewed Body. In Her memory listen to "I was born by the river" Gloria Jo Floyd The life of this amazing Woman began as She was Born just a few yards away from the San Marcos river in Fentress, Texas on February 16th, 1945 to the loving parents of Otha James & Ora Lee Wade. Gloria hit the ground with a stride that never ended until the morning hours of October 16th, 2023 just a few yards away from the banks of the Atascosa River. In her accomplishments as a Young Girl from little bitty ole Luling Tx she set out and achieved the goal of letting the world know Her name. From bussing tables and assistant cook at McKays Restaurant in Luling, Tx to earning her RN from St Phillips college of San Antonio to earning her doctorate at the University of North Texas to being the director of nurses at many well known Texas hospitals. Her life was of giving to all but herself. Of all of her accomplishments what made her the proudest was her marriage to Elliott Floyd Sr & her greatest blessing was that of being a Mom to her children. Although her two oldest she did not birth, she raised them as her own. Of the five there are William Elliott Floyd, Reccie Mozzel Miller, Angela Elliott Eyvone Floyd, Elliott Bucky Floyd and Jade Elliott Small. Her life was go go go, even with the diagnoses of cancer it only acted as a speed bump and she full heartedly went around it and kept the pedal to the floor. Another cherished accomplishment of Her success as a Woman was to honor other women like her, so in 1984 She founded the San Antonio women's hall of fame. Her last few years of life was that of bed rest which she well deserved. She was proceeded in death by her Parents Otha & Ora Wade, niece Gwen Lampkin nephew Reggie Wade, grandson Benjamin Miller, Younger brother Harry James Wade, and husband of 44 years Elliott Floyd Sr. She leaves to cherish her children along with brothers Otha Jr, Don & Ronnie Wade, sisters Cynthia Lampkin & Gale Anderson, Grandchildren Wade Elliott Floyd & wife Samantha, Reggie Miller, Landon Floyd, Georgina Small, and Jasper Small, Great Granddaughter Elliott Rae Floyd. Forever grateful She was for the love and care She received from Jennifer Floyd along with and heavenly sent Noey Gonzales. Between those two ladies, they kept the sparkle in Gloria's eye shining over the last 10 years. The family is without words to express the Thankfulness and love for y'all two for your endless efforts to keep her relevant in life. She is laid to rest next to Elliott Floyd Sr on the bank of Caney Creek on the Floyd Family Farm outside of Wharton, Texas.
