On January 9th, 2022, Gloria K. DesMarais (Sanchirico) passed away peacefully and has gone to meet our Lord. Gloria was born on December 20th,1933, in Carbondale, Pa.  At a young age, her family moved to Yonkers, NY, where she graduated from Roosevelt HS in 1950.

In 1958 she married Frederick J. DesMarais, and in 1968 they moved to Irvington, NY where she raised her four children, Thomas, Frederick, Christopher, and Melissa.

She worked for Lord and Burnham Corp. in Irvington and then went on to work for Westchester Medical Center as a secretary in the Bio Lab Department until her retirement.

Gloria enjoyed gardening, reading books, and doing crossword puzzles.  She also enjoyed watching old movies.  She loved animals and, when she lived in Irvington, she could be seen every day walking her yellow lab, Buck on the Aqueduct, and watching softball games at the park.
