Gloria Mae Werstler, 90, widow of Daniel J. Werstler, formerly of Gilbertsville, reunited with her husband on Thursday, March 9, 2023. They are celebrating in Heaven.
Born in Bechtelsville, PA, Gloria was the daughter of the late Leroy Heydt and Agnes (Weller) Heydt. She most recently resided in Blandon.
Gloria was a 1951 graduate of Boyertown Area High School. She worked at Tung-Sol in Boyertown from approximately 1955 until 1963. She took some time off to raise her family.

I’m very sorry to hear of the passing of your mom, Dwight. I pray that your fond memories help you through your time of grief. Take care!
Gloria was my Aunt, my Dad’s sister. I always called her Auntie. Some of my fondest memories of her were Christmas mornings at her parents’ house. Auntie gave the best Christmas gifts! The other best memories were the times Auntie and Uncle Danny would take me to the Pocono Mountains with them for a week. Auntie had a good sense of humor, and I liked to hear her laugh. I also enjoyed the time I spent with her son, my cousin, Dwight. Those were some of the best times of my childhood.
