Gloria Beth Eliason passed away on February 7, 2018. She was born August 9, 1933 in Logan, Utah to Joseph Raphael and Ruth Marie Olson Eliason. While she spent the majority of her life in Ogden, Utah, she had also lived in Nibley, Utah, Provo, Utah and Portland, Oregon. Gloria had a great affection for Cache Valley. She graduated from South Cache High School, attended Brigham Young University and received her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Utah State University in 1955. She was an avid fan of the Utah State Aggies and enjoyed watching and listening to football and basketball games.

Gloria was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Gloria retired from teaching 1st grade in Ogden City Schools and had spent the majority of her teaching career at Horace Mann Elementary. Gloria especially loved children.

Gloria will be remembered for her infectious smile and laugh. She had a close relationship with her parents and siblings and enjoyed family time immensely. She was kind and thoughtful toward her nieces and nephews and their families. Her generosity knew no bounds; she rarely showed up for a visit empty-handed and often brought goodies, gifts, and coins for the little ones.

Gloria was preceded in death by her parents; siblings James Ray Eliason, Catherine Eliason Liljenquist and Glen Maurice Eliason; and niece Jill Eliason Stenquist. She is survived by her nieces and nephews Suzanne (Dan) Bodrero, David (Corinne) Eliason, Jim (Laura) Eliason, Wade Stenquist, Joe (Celeste) Liljenquist, Ann (Bruce) Gladwell, Liz (Clyde) Mueller, Patrice (Kim) Boerens, Barbara (Kyle) Curtis, Katie (Kirk) Smith, John (Marilyn) Liljenquist, Eric (Reagan) Eliason, Megan (Ben) Shaw, Erin (Jim) Bergstedt, Kyle (Heidi) Eliason, Kristen (Erik) Ekenes, Catherine (Aaron) Baird and her sister-in-law Claudia Eliason.
