Gloria Louise Lincoln passed away peacefully in her sleep on Sunday.
She was a wonderful woman with a full life, and she had a passionate love for her family and many friends.
Gloria was a proud Italian who was born in San Francisco, California and spent most of her life in the East Bay. Gloria worked a majority of her life as a legal secretary and was known as the best typist and short hand specialist ever. A very sharp woman who worked different jobs her entire life to keep her mind active and to learn new skills with enthusiasm.
Gloria loved cooking big Italian dinners, socializing with people, and was always up for a chat over cocktails. Visiting her son in New York City was a yearly highlight, and loved every holiday with family and friends. She always had a gift in hand when arriving and always sent a thank you card, filled with appreciation.

On her father‘s side Paula Romani, Christine Tenconi and daughter Francesca Tenconi. She also leaves behind her god daughter Lisa Nick-Scott, who she loved very much and thought of as a daughter. While her immediate family was small, she thought of her friends as family and their children as her children and grandchildren. She had an endless love for all of the above.
