She married her childhood sweetheart, the late Albert R. Gottesman, on September 23, 1945. They spent the next 49 years happily married. As each other’s best friend, they worked side-by-side together at the Long Island Better Business Bureau.
She is survived by: daughter, Ginny Tessitore and her husband, Ron; three granddaughters, who were the loves of her life: Michelle (Shelly) Tessitore, Heather Tessitore, and Christina Williams and her husband, Spencer Williams. She is also survived by her nephew, Robert Ehni and family of California.
Gloria was a wonderful mother and grandmother. She was a generous and caring person who gave much of herself to others. She will be greatly missed by all she knew and those she touched.
