We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Weldon - Fisher Funeral Home
Gloria Jean Brown Hackett was born to the late Earl and Annie Brown. She was educated in Westmoreland County Public Schools. At an early age she began her Christian journey at Zion Baptist Church. The name GLORIA actually means “the glory of God” and she lived her life accordingly.
Gloria was a gentle, kind-loving person. She loved her life, family, and friends. She especially loved children and they were drawn to her. She loved the Lord, always highly favored, she walked the walk by speaking, praising, and writing scripture. She was known for sending notes or cards with scripture and a positive messages just because that was her way of life, to lift your spirit. She talked with a laugh as if she had a secret then proceed in the conversation and her smile was right behind. If there was a time that Gloria was not dressed to a “T”, it was maybe while she was asleep, but even then she looked beautiful.
Family meant everything to her and she surely will be missed. Gloria had heart issues at a very early stage that progressed quickly. She never complained. She sought out the best cardiologist in the VA/DC; while GOD’s hands kept her well.
Those who shared her life and cherish her memory are her husband, Edward; daughter, Valerie “Dimples” (Norris) of Kinsale, VA; son, James “Gibby” of Simpsonville, SC; grandchildren, Nar’Keshia (Delnardo) of Atlanta, GA, Ricco (Chanelle) of MD, Christine of Atlanta, GA, Victoria (Hakeem) of Tappahannock, VA and Devon, Travon, and Justice of Simpsonville, SC; her siblings, Earl Brown, Jr., Sandra Veney (who preceded her in death), Pearl Fauntleroy (Samuel), Cecilia Hackett (James), Annie Oliver, Riney Brown (Deborah), Johnny Brown (Linda), and Deborah Braxton (recently departed Joseph) of Hampton, GA; great grandchildren, Kaylor, Donovan, and Dominic; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and very special friends.
