Gloria Jodoin Obituary


   Gloria Joann Jodoin, a wonderful mother of five, grandmother of six, great grandmother of seven, wife, sister, aunt, and friend, peacefully went home to be with our Lord and Savior on Monday, February 19, 2024 at the age of 94.  As a single mother, Gloria provided a beautiful and inviting home for her family. She always put her family’s needs above her own and prayed for them daily.  Gloria loved reading the Bible and her daily devotions, and spending time with her family. Gloria loved her children’s spouses as if they were her own, and her heart expanded even more with the arrival of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    Gloria was born in Newark, NJ on November 27, 1929 to William and Lillian (Mayer) Dester. She was a long-time resident of Brandon, VT, and worked for over 20 years at the Brandon Training School as a nurse’s aide. After she retired from the Training School, she worked for the State of Vermont in the unemployment department for several more years.

     Gloria was predeceased by her parents, two sisters (Doris and Barbara), her brother (Billy), her daughters Gail and Paula, her son Bill, and her granddaughter, Tracey. Gloria is survived by her husband, Bob Fisher, her sister, Lois (Jack), her sons Richard (Jan) and Robert (Angela), five grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and her nephews and nieces.

     Her final days were spent surrounded by her loving family, who cherished every laugh, smile, and special moment. All who came to know Gloria were blessed by her presence, and we imagine she is now rejoicing in Heaven with her Lord and Savior and loved ones who went before her.

      A celebration of Gloria’s life will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers, kindly offer a donation to the Brandon Senior Center, P.O. Box 237, Brandon, VT 05733.
