Born and raised in Flint, she was the daughter of David C. and Donnabel (Case) Tebo, and the loving wife for 58 years to the late Bernard Carl Mayville, Jr. Gloria and Bernard were high school sweethearts and attended Kearsley High School. They were married when Gloria was 17 years of age and started a family right away. As a young mother, Gloria gave her life to the Lord at her home church, Bible Baptist Church, in Flint. Being passionate about children, Gloria taught K4 and held many childcare positions through the years. Her students still remember her and called on her through her last days. A wonderful hostess and homemaker, Gloria loved to cook for others and did canning and sewing, having been taught by her mother and passed her knowledge down to her children and grandchildren. She always had sweets around and was even nicknamed “Cookie Grandma”. Although a wiz with word games, sudoku, cribbage, puzzles, and games of any kind, Gloria had an artful side as well, talented in writing poetry and singing in church. She also played the piano, having always had a piano in her home to teach others and for children to play. Later in life, when not playing games, you could find her watching old westerns, Fox News, Jeopardy, or Wheel of Fortune. She loved spending time with her family most of all, particularly enjoying time spent together camping and at their former lakefront property. Gloria was the kind of person who never missed a birthday or special day, always keeping track in her calendar and sending a card. She was very much loved by all who knew her and will be dearly missed.
Left to cherish Gloria's memory are her children: Bernard III and wife, Josephine Mayville, Lynnette and husband, Brion Carter, Kathryn and husband, George Gaines, Donna and husband, Steve Berg, Allyson and husband, Ryan Albert; 22 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
Gloria was preceded in death by her loving husband, Bernard; parents; and brother, James Tebo.
