Gloria Jean Sherbut


SHERBUT, Gloria Jean
1927 - 2020

Gloria Jean Sherbut, age 92, passed away peacefully on April 18, 2020. Born December 1927 in Toronto, Ontario, Gloria spent her formative years between Toronto, Kincardine and St. Thomas. After gaining some distinction in her early twenties as an actress and singer, Gloria married James John (Jim) Sherbut on May 19, 1950. Together, Gloria and Jim embarked on a life that saw them settle in Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto and finally Calgary. During this time they built and raised their family, established careers and developed a large social circle. When not with her family Gloria spent her time working or volunteering in various roles and socializing with her many friends. Together with Jim, she dedicated her later years to as much globetrotting as they could manage. Throughout they were always surrounded by the love of their five children (one passed away in infancy) nine grandchildren and one great grandchild

My husband Alex and I were saddened to learn about Gloria's passing. Many years ago, I was lucky to work with her husband Jim and of course met Gloria at that time. She was a warm, gracious and caring lady. Above all, she loved Jim and loved her family. She was interested in others, engaged in the world, loved to laugh, and always had a twinkle in her eye. We send our deepest condolences to the whole family. Her death is a great loss. Shirley Mesbur, Toronto.
