Gloria was born on June 12, 1934 in Greenwood, Delaware to Charles and Esther (Brown) Johnson. Gloria grew up on the outskirts of Greenwood, known as Woodenhawk. Her family owned and operated a saw mill. She attended and graduated from the Bridgeville School.
On April 9 in 1955, Gloria married her high school sweetheart, Ray Workman Trivits. They were long time members of Cannon Methodist Church, and more recently the Union Methodist Church in Bridgeville, Delaware. One of her favorite activities was singing in her church choir. She loved gardening and cooking. She will be remembered for a beautiful garden full of lima beans, the best chicken and dumplings, and her peanut brittle. Family was very important to Gloria, and she dedicated herself to maintaining family ties. She was always ready to help anyone in need, always putting others ahead of herself. Along with caring for her family, Gloria also worked for the Delaware Electric Cooperative for 27 years.
