Gloria Klein Quesenberry age 90, passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus on June 22, 2022. She was born Feb 24, 1932 to Ethmer Klein and Georgia McClure Hendrick in Coalwood, West Virginia. Gloria was a long-time resident of Ocean Springs, Ms. where she and her husband, Coy spent many years enjoying the Mississippi Gulf Coast after moving from Roanoke, Virginia in 1973. She worked as a bookkeeper in various positions on the Gulf Coast during her working career where she met many people who became her friends. Gloria was a very loving, giving and caring person who always shared a smile and kind words for whomever she met. Her main passion in life was her children and grandchildren which brought her continuous happiness throughout her life. She was a faithful and beloved member of the Belle Fountain Baptist Church in Ocean Springs. Her faith and belief in God kept her going strong for many years. Even as her health began to fail, one of her favorite mottos was, "never give up" and she lived that daily. She will be missed greatly by her family and friends because a better Mother and friend could not be found!
