Gloria Saylor, 78, traded this earthly home for her eternal, heavenly home Sunday, May 17, 2020. She was a lifelong resident of Port Lavaca, born Sept. 7, 1941 to Ralph and Lillie Tanner.
Gloria is survived by her daughter, Allison Crabtree and husband, Doug Crabtree, of Vernon, and three grandsons and their families, including two great-granddaughters: John Crabtree, of Addison; Paul and Samantha Crabtree and daughter, Adelyn, of Mineola; and Luke and Lacey Crabtree and daughter, Laken, of Stanton.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Ronnie Tanner (1976) and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Gloria was always very clear that she did not want a public service after she passed. She was cremated as per her wishes and her ashes will later be scattered off a mountaintop Big Bend National Park, a place she dearly enjoyed.
