Gloria Johnson Trivits of Greenwood, went to her eternal home on Friday, Jan. 24, 2020, surrounded by her loving family.

Gloria was born on June 12, 1934 in Greenwood, to the late Charles and Esther (Brown) Johnson. She grew up in Woodenhawk located on the outskirts of Greenwood. Her family owned and operated a sawmill. She attended and graduated from the Bridgeville School.

On April 9, 1955, Gloria married her high school sweetheart, Ray Workman Trivits. They were longtime members of Cannon Methodist Church, and more recently, Union Methodist Church in Bridgeville. One of her favorite activities was singing in the church choir.

Gloria 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.

In addition to caring for her family, Gloria worked for the Delaware Electric Cooperative for 27 years.

Gloria is survived by her loving husband of 64 years, Ray Workman Trivits; a daughter, Linda Marie Trivits Abbott (Stewart Abbott); a son, Charles Ray Trivits (Christine Schrock Trivits); three grandsons, Kyle Ray Trivits (Brianca), Kevin Charles Trivits (Anna) and Skip Leon Trivits (Jenny); four great-grandchildren, Daphne, Charles, Connor and Juliet; and one sister, Darlene Johnson Figgs (Mark).

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Country Rest Home of Greenwood and Vitas Hospice Healthcare for the loving care given to the entire family.
