Eunice Gloor (Williams)
September 3, 1927 – March 7, 2021
Eunice was born and raised near Martell, Nebraska where she was passionate about school. Upon graduating from Lincoln High School, she enrolled at University of Nebraska-Lincoln where she received a business education degree and also met the love of her life, Alvin Gloor. Eunice and Al began 71 years of marriage on August 7, 1949, and taught together at Chappell, NE High School for several years. Their four children were born there, and after a year of Al’s graduate work at the University of Michigan, they relocated to Omaha, NE. Eunice was a sought after substitute teacher for the Westside Community School District, and an active volunteer at Rockbrook United Methodist Church where she was involved in teaching Sunday School, Sparetimers, and women’s ministries. She was a wonderful mother, beloved friend to many, and enjoyed Bible Studies, music, gardening, reading to and playing games with her grandchildren.
Eunice was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Al; daughter, Kay Wegrzyn; parents, James and Oleda Williams; brother, Clifford Williams, and sister-in-law, Katherine Williams.She is survived by son, David (Mary) Gloor; daughters, Kathy (Rick) Vranicar, Carol (Jeff) Peters, son-in-law, David Wegrzyn; grandchildren: Jason (Molly) Peters, Heidi Peters, Erica (Bhargava) Mullapudi, Anne (Mike) Utech, Mike Gloor, Katie (Quinn) Willet, Steve Gloor, Scott (Rebecca) Vranicar, Erin (Dane) Berger, Brian Vranicar, Lynn (Brian) Foster, and Lara Wegrzyn; great-grandchilden, Aly, Jake, Camy, and Ethan Utech, Priya, Meera, Arya, and Arun Mullapudi, Micah and Audra Vranicar, Hannah Berger, and Micah Foster; brothers, Warren Williams, Richard (Dorothy) Williams; sister, Vivian (Donald) Block; sister-in-law, Dody Williams; and many nieces and nephews.
One of Eunice’s favorite hymns was Blessed Assurance. We are confident she is singing, “This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long!”

To the Gloor family,
I am very sorry to hear of Eunice’s passing. You have my deepest sympathy at this time.
Overland Park, KS
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
The Gloors were an important part of my life when I was a student at Chappell. Al went back to school the same time that I went on to college. I taught in Kansas City, Kansas for several years and then moved to the Westside Schools in Omaha. I have to admit that when I found out that “Mr. Gloor” was a teacher in the district my wife were satisfied that I could enjoy teaching there as well. They were amazing people.
Al taught me how to play chess, told me it was time to apply at Westside, and showed up for my interview at Westside. Encouraged me to be chess club sponsor. I enjoyed 36 years at WHS thanks to him!
Our family just learned belatedly of Eunice’s passing. She and Al were such an wonderful presence and part of our childhood through church and our parents shared “card party, Her warmth and devotion and compassion was evident and shared any time we had the opportunity to visit Rockbrook or otherwise crossed paths in later life. Such a wonderful friend to our (now deceased) mother and father. Our condolences to the entire Gloor Family.
