She was the 11th child of twelve born to James Madison Williams and Mollie Marie (Chapman) Williams. She was the beloved wife of 52 years to the late Bobby (“Bob”) Ray Marble, who passed away August 20, 2014. After graduating from Puckett High School, in Puckett, Mississippi, Gloria attended and graduated from cosmetology school in Jackson, Mississippi and spent the next 56 years working as a cosmetologist and hairdresser, having owned her own salon for almost 50 years. Deeply devoted to her clients, many of whom were friends and like family to her, she finally retired after health issues prevented her from continuing to work. She was a faithful member of First Baptist Church of Terry, Mississippi and was well-known for her kind, peaceable, and loving nature. She was comforted by her son and granddaughter living nearby and enjoyed breakfast and coffee with her son on most mornings. Gloria was an avid gardener and enjoyed working in her yard, planting a variety of flowers, caring for and feeding the birds, and particularly liked riding her zero-turn mower. She continued to enjoy watching the birds and God’s creation until the last day of her life. She leaves behind her daughter, Gloria Renée Marble, and grandson, Hartmann Anderson Marble-Wright; her son, Edwin Blair Marble, and granddaughter, Alanna Brooke Marble; her sister-in-law, Frances Flynt Marble; nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews; and many good friends who will all miss her presence intensely. A memorial service will be held in her loving memory Saturday, November 20, 2021, at First Baptist Church of Terry, 209 Raymond Street, Terry, Mississippi, at 2:00pm. Thereafter, the family will celebrate her life in a private interment ceremony attended by direct family members.
