Obituary of Gloria Jaros

Gloria was a woman that found love in the simplest of things – family, tradition, values, friendship, travel, cooking, and hosting people close to her heart and home. She was a woman of principles and substance. She married an amazing man named Walter, who she affectionately called “Wally,” Together, they set out on their adventure of life together. They were always by each other’s sides and depended on one another deeply. After traveling throughout some amazing destinations of the world, they decided to enrich their lives and were blessed with a beautiful son, which they named Brett. Gloria quickly embraced the role of a mother and made sure that her son experienced culture, tradition, and quality as he grew under her guidance. The pride that Gloria felt as a mother to her son has never been surpassed. She was made for this role; to be Wally’s wife and Brett’s mom – a role she embraced with all her soul. This was who she was at her core. Never expecting more, Gloria was blessed to meet her one and only granddaughter, Ms. Jordan Jaros, who, near the end, became the light in her eyes. Gloria loved deeply and gathered a core group of friends. She enjoyed her connections and enriched each person she was blessed to call a friend. Gloria’s hobby of cooking found her constantly attempting to build the perfect cuisine in order to bring those she loved together at the table to connect and build memories. Her ability to create an ambiance is second to none. She excelled at hosting meals to bring people together to build beautiful memories. Gloria’s message around cooking used to be, “You don’t have to like it, but you at least have to try it.” This message echoes as a message to all those that she loved so deeply in her life. You do not always have to like what is happening or the cards you may be dealt with, but you always have to try your best and make an effort to see it through…no matter what. We hope that you will take a tasting spoon and keep it as a reminder that life is for tasting, and you may not always like what you get – but you always have to give it a try. To the memory of Gloria Jaros – you will be missed beyond measure and loved without limit. Jaros, Gloria (nee Costrine) November 10, 2020 of Hamburg, NY. Beloved wife of late Walter E.
