74, known to all as “Babe”, gracefully passed away from us to Heaven on July 9, 2016 at St. Joe’s Hospital. Babe was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, auntie, and friend. She was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1941, but lived her childhood in Canton, Ohio. She attended Glenwood HS. She and her family were founding and faithful members of St. George’s Romanian Catholic Cathedral. In 1959, she attended Ohio University where she was a member of the Sigma Kappa Sorority and a cheerleader. There she met her love, and life partner of 53 years, Mike Schuler. She is survived by her loving husband and daughters Kimberly Foxx, married to Bryan Foxx, and Kristin Baker married to Rick Baker. Together Gloria and Mike were grandparents to their truest loves in life Weston Foxx, Madison Foxx, Jaxson Baker, and Jordan Baker. She was a loyal sister to Carol Sissea Hoge and Elaine Sissea Macroglou. She was a second mom to her nieces and nephews: Kevin Hoge, Anne Hoge Milliken, Jenna Hoge Swaim, Nikolas Macroglou, and Lauren Macroglou Fadda. Outside of being a devoted wife and mother, she was a steadfast, compassionate, tried and true friend to so many within her circle, community, causes, basketball teams, tennis teams, and clubs. She was a “Warrior Woman” and fought defiantly until the end against her only nemesis, ovarian cancer. She admired and joined forces with Dr. Bradley Monk, his staff, and all the unsung heroes who are continuously dedicating their personal and professional lives in fighting the good fight to “Pound out Cancer”. She lived her years well and passed quickly with very little suffering physically, but anguished over the thought of leaving us all without her unconditional caretaking. Safe and at peace, she is now in the warm embrace of Our Heavenly Father and her parents Helen and Troy Sissea. The impact she had on earth will be forever unknown to her. She left a mark on all who are so saddened by her absence now, and for years to come. Her passions were her family, friends, grandchildren’s activities, and checking off the items on her bucket list as best as she could dream and physically accomplish. She is now at rest free of sickness and fear, and smiling upon us all flashing those “babe blue” eyes. She is watching from above trying to ease our pain, mend our hearts, and wishing us all to live well in our daily lives. We as a family live with two mottos that she instilled in us. First is “ain’t nobody happy till Mama’s happy.” Secondly, and her personal favorite, “Love Me Til My Heart Stops!” She can be assured, as her heart has stopped beating, we will all continue to love her forever! Gloria’s services will be held at 11:00 am on Wednesday August 3, 2016 at Christ Church Anglican, 5811 N. 20th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85016. There will be a reception in the Parish Hall following the service. Babe, upon her diagnosis in March 2012, received comfort, grace, and was made to feel beautiful and loved by the amazing volunteers of the Face in the Mirror organization. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Face in the Mirror in her honor.
