Obituary for Gloria Koester

Gloria Koester
We celebrate the life of Gloria Koester. Born May 30, 1931, Gloria passed away peacefully Saturday, November 11 in Melbourne, Fl at the age of 86.
A strong, fiercely independent, well traveled woman, Gloria had a special artistic flair that was evident in both the many photos she took of her world travels and the way she fully lived her life.
Gloria held her lifelong circle friends and family close to her heart.
Preceded in death by her husband, Philip Koester; her parents, Ida and Lawrence Gentile Sr. and her brother, Lawrence Gentile Jr., Gloria leaves her loving Sister, Delores Ziegler and loving brother, Don Gentile as well as many, many adoring nieces and nephews who will miss her greatly.
There will be a visitation gathering for Gloria at Beach Funeral Home – West, Melbourne, Fl., on the 25 of November at 1:00 pm with a Celebration of Life service beginning at 2pm. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St Jude Children’s Hospital or the American Cancer Association.
