She was a fixture in the Portland music scene for decades and paved the way for many women in the biz. A big loss indeed.

What a voice and what a personality; she was always on-key and a great soother.

Radio pioneer and an all around dear sweet person

Maybe the first female disc jockey -- and I'm not even sure about that. How about Konnie Worth who started on KGW Radio in July 1954? And didn't KEX also have a woman on-the-air in the 50s?

My condolences to Gloria's loved ones. Please know she was respected and admired by her legions of loyal listeners. We loved her.

One of my all time favourites on KGON, and a very sweet lady, I delivered promo tapes for March of Dimes one year, and got to meet a few of their disc jockeys.May she RIP.. She did not have a face only for radio....

A lovely soul. Had the pleasure of meeting her several times at KGON events.Breakfast on the Willamette stands out.
