Gloria F. Martin, age 85, our beloved mother, Gloria F. Martin (Loden) went home to be with the Lord on November 22, 2021. She was the middle child born to Benjamin F. and Gladys I. Loden on July 6, 1936, in Haleyville, AL. She is preceded in death by her loving husband, of 62 years, Leldon R. Martin, one sister and many friends and family. She is survived by her daughters, Debra Martin (David), and Leigh Ann Kimbrell (Christopher), one granddaughter, one great granddaughter, one sister, Margaret Barker, numerous nieces and nephews and daughters whom she brought into her life to give ever so much love. Mother had so little in this life to give, but she gave all…..she loved hard and completely……and the world is surely a lesser place without her.
