Gloria J. Sell

Gloria Jean Sell, 68, formerly of Peshtigo, passed away June 10, 2018, at her home in Green Bay. Born Jan. 12, 1950, in Menominee, Michigan, she was raised by her adopted parents, the late LeRoy and Laura Hopkins. April 13, 1974, she married her love, Myron F. Sell, and he preceded her in death Dec. 26, 2012. In June 1981, she met her birth mother, Dorothy (McMahon) Wood, and her birth family.

Gloria was an apartment manager for 15 years in Texas, then a manager for the Dollar Store in Shawano for three years and most recently as a babysitter extraordinaire otherwise known to her many kids as “Grandma Glo” for 18 years.

She was an avid Packers fan, well known for her love of flowers, playing cards, cooking and entertaining for family and friends. Many will miss her ever filled bottomless M&M jar. She enjoyed decorating inside and out for every holiday, with Christmas being her and Myron’s favorite holiday. The one thing she loved the very most was her son and grandchildren, and there wasn’t a prouder grandma out there.

Gloria is survived by her son, Shawn (Angela) Sell; her grandchildren, Chyna and Mason Sell, Ryan Simonar and Keegan Mepyans; two sisters, Annette (Tom) Bow and Jody Biehl; five brothers, Ron (Lori) Leavitt, Butch (Patti) Wortner, Ed (Lynn) Wortner, Jim (Janice) Wortner, and MJ (Karin) Wood.

Along with her adopted parents, LeRoy and Laura ,and her husband, Myron, she was preceded in death by her birth mother, Dorothy; two brothers, Michael Hopkins and Joe McMahon; and a sister, Julie Wood.

Visitation will be held Thursday, June 14, at Berth & Rosenthal Funeral Home in Peshtigo (331 S. Ellis Ave.) from 4 p.m. until time of services at 7 p.m.
