Gloria C. (Arneson) Weghorn of Spring Valley, Wisconsin, at the age of 91, entered the presence of her Lord and Savior on February 11, 2024, at Christian Community Homes - Pine Ridge, Hudson, WI. 

She was born September 2, 1932 in Spring Valley to Clifford and Esther (Gunderson) Arneson.  Gloria attended Spring Valley High School and graduated salutatorian of her class.  She was an avid reader and typically had 5 or 6 books going at the same time.  She enjoyed an assortment of novels, biographies and Christian literature.  Her favorite book was the Bible and favorite verse was Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”  

Gloria was an only child and always wished she had siblings.  She helped her father Clifford W. Arneson in his grocery store business the Arneson Grocery.  Gloria dearly loved Jack H. Weghorn her high school sweetheart and received daily letters from Jack when he was in the army.  They married on September 21, 1952.  God was in the center of their relationship and they sought His will in their lives.  Gloria loved the Lord, her family and all those she came in contact with. The Lord laid upon her heart to teach the Word of God and she taught a small group of ladies in their home in Spring Valley.  She enjoyed playing piano and sharing her talent with the nursing home residents over the years.

Gloria leaves behind her children, Lynn (and her husband Bill Durfee, who joined Gloria in heaven last Friday, February 16) of Lakewood, CO, Mary (Scott) Walburg of Cambridge, MN, Barry Weghorn of Red Wing, MN, six grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren.  She is also survived by several other relatives and friends.

Gloria was preceded in death by her parents, husband Jack, son Blake, granddaughter Ashley and brother-in-law Ralph Gavic.

The family would like to thank the staff at Christian Community Homes - Pine Ridge and Lakeview Hospice for their compassion and kindness given to their mom while she was under their care.
