General Information

Full Name: Gloria O. Hornwood
Date of Death: Friday, May 8, 2020

Gloria Orlins Hornwood died of natural causes on May 8, 2020 at the age of 92. Born in the  Bronx and raised in NYC, she was a woman ahead of her time. She graduated from NYU and  became an interior designer. Her energy was contagious, and she practiced yoga and meditation  in the 1960’s, along with studying macrobiotics and raw foods. As time went on, she added  jazzercise, folk dancing, and aerobics as her natural medicine for keeping her spirits up. A true  believer in nutrition and alternative medicine, she helped many people make positive choices  with their healthcare, hence earning the nickname, Dr. Glo. 

You could find Gloria in her garden keeping the wildlife happy, or in the kitchen creating her  delicious baked goods with all natural ingredients. 

Gloria loved her family, and kept going when Carl, the love of her life died in 1979. She leaves  behind 3 daughters, Philippe, Madeline Pantzer (Dennis) and Amie Fields (Ira), 2 grandchildren, Michael and Caroline, and a large circle of cousins and friends. 

Gloria will live on in our hearts, especially when we walk at the ocean or meditate in the woods.
