She was raised with her seven siblings on the family farm in Callaway, Minnesota. As a young woman, she ventured to Minneapolis to go to school. In 1944, she met and married Raymond Jacoby.

In 1996, she met Sam Moore and fell in love, giddy as a schoolgirl. They married in 1997 and were married until his passing in 2008.
Gloria was good at everything she did and worked incredibly hard whether it was volunteering at the Sons of Norway making Vikings for the State Fair, volunteering at Lady of Lourdes annual bazaar and with the OLL Altar Society, or waitressing at Gordons restaurant. After her kids were finally all in school, Mom received night school training to get the job she loved most - a Ward Secretary at Columbus Hospital where she thrived and was beloved by her coworkers.
