Gloria Edmiston, age 79, of Coleman, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, with her daughter by her side.
She was born Gloria Jean Sutton on April 30, 1943, in Yuba City, California to Thomas Paul Sutton and Betty Jean Van Winkle Sutton. Gloria grew up in Odessa, Texas where she attended school. She married Ronald Kent Edmiston on July 26, 1959, in Odessa. Gloria and Ronald moved to Coleman in 1995 after Ronald retired from the City of Midland as a firefighter. Ronald preceded Gloria in death on August 6, 2021.
Gloria enjoyed collecting and reading books. She always made time in her day to work on the daily crossword puzzle and then moved on to her crossword puzzle book. Her afternoons were spent watching her favorite soaps, “Days of Our Lives” and “The Young and The Restless.” Gloria also loved watching “Gunsmoke,” even though she had probably seen the episode multiple times. Gloria was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be missed.
Gloria is also preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Betty Jean Sutton; and one brother, William Sutton.
She is survived by three daughters, Vicki Edmiston, Laurie Richards and husband Chris Peppers, and Ronda Edmiston and husband Calvin Davenport; 14 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; one sister, Shirley Barrett; and one brother, Jerry Sutton and wife Sandy.
