It is with great sadness that the family of GLORIA LAUREEN (BATEMAN) CALLUM announce her passing on Wednesday, October 10, 2012. Wife of Bruce and the love of his life for 59 years. The most amazing mom to Lauriegay and her husband Greg McKinnon and Brad and his wife Sam Callum. “Best Grandma ever” to Lauren and her husband Randy Atkinson, Chloe McKinnon, Trista and her husband Rob Ritchie and Derek Callum. Also survived by sister in law Ann, many cousins, nieces and nephews and her best friends. Gloria is remembered as a wonderful cook and the ultimate dessert maker. Everything she did as a grandmother was absolutely magnificent. She was the most classy, elegant and gracious lady you could ever meet. Grandma was always there to listen and give us advice no matter what the issue. She had a sense of humour that would make you “p” your pants. Love you more than anything Grandma and you will never be forgotten. At Gloria’s request, there will be no visitation or funeral. A celebration of her life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Canadian Liver Foundation, Canadian PBC Foundation (4936 Young St., Suite 221, Toronto, ON M2N 6S3) or Sarnia Humane Society. Memories and messages of condolence may be sent through


Thank you to the special VON nurses and PSW’s who helped us to care for Gloria at home.”
