Gloria Jean VanHefty, 68, of Peshtigo, passed away Thursday, Oct. 31 surrounded by her family at St. Vincent Hospital, Green Bay.
Born March 29, 1945 in Oconto to the late Lawrence and Helene (Koskie) Leigh, she married Richard Van Hefty on Aug. 28, 1965.
She loved baking and had a greater love for people, being adored by everyone she came in contact with. She possessed that special gift that made everyone refer to her as grandma.
