WAUNCH, Gloria
1948 – 2020
Mrs. Gloria Louise Waunch (nee Shanks), of Red Deer, passed away at her home on Sunday, June 21, 2020 at the age of 72 years. Gloria was born on June 8, 1948 at Innisfail, Alberta, to Lloyd Shanks and Marjorie Lamarsh; along with her brothers and sister. Gloria attended the Clarendon School.

She was predeceased by Richard in 1976. In 1977, Gloria married Walt Bellair, and they farmed in the Acme Area. Then Gloria met Don Waunch and they resided in several communities throughout the Alberta. Gloria and Don married in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta on December 16, 1989. Gloria had a huge heart and loved helping the less fortunate. She worked at Potters Hands and Safe Harbor, until her health would no longer allow her to. She loved going on picnics and will surely be watching over us all from her new picnic bench! Gloria will be lovingly remembered by her son, Sheldon Metcalfe, of Red Deer; her daughters, Kathlene (nee Metcalfe) (Clint) Bowers of Penhold and Dawn Metcalfe, also of Red Deer; six grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.
