Gloria Ann Jackson Harrison (Tuffs), age 97 of Lowell, went to be with her Lord on Sunday, October 2, 2022. She was preceded in death by her husbands, Dr. Robert T. Harrison and Leonard Jackson; brother, Lloyd Tuffs; and sister, Vivian Ranville. Gloria is survived by her beloved children, Robert (Susan) Harrison and William (Margaret) Harrison; five grandchildren, Mandy (Michael) Knight, Molly Harrison (Josh Wyckoff), William (Andrea) Harrison, Daniel (Grace) Harrison, and Chelsea (Dr. Reid) Meador; 11 great-grandchildren, Alexi Knight, Bailey Knight, Robert Knight, Riley Snyder, Avery Harrison, Zoey Harrison, Theodore Harrison, Finn Harrison, Louis Harrison, Jocelyn Meador and Harrison Meador; sister, Joane Hedgecock; brother, William (Ellamae) Tuffs; many nieces and nephews; and all of her dear friends. Gloria grew up on the north side of Grand Rapids and graduated from Creston High School in 1942. She then went on to attend Butterworth School of Nursing and worked as a Registered Nurse at the VA Hospital in Battle Creek. Gloria’s greatest love was her family, and she never wanted to miss out on anything, especially her grandchildren’s activities. She enjoyed traveling, spending time on Murray Lake, playing cards, tennis, swimming, breakfast with her closest friends, and singing while she played the ukulele. Gloria enjoyed being around others and was always quick to start up a conversation. She was an active member at the First Congregational Church in Lowell.  Her sense of style, jokes, stories, and most importantly, the love she had for her family and friends will be missed. A service in memory of Gloria will take place on Saturday, November 5, 2022, at the First Congregational Church in Lowell, 865 Lincoln Lake, Lowell, MI 49331, starting at 11:00am.
