Obituary of Gloria C Sanderson

Gloria C. Sanderson age 95, of Bridgewater, NJ went home to the Lord on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.

Born in Bound Brook, NJ she was the daughter of the late Nicholas and Elenor Peppe.

She grew up in Bound Brook, married William Sanderson in 1948, and moved to Bridgewater.

She worked as a secretary at Union Carbide in Bound Brook before starting a family.  After a time she took a job in Quality Assurance for Ethicon in Bridgewater where she worked until her retirement.  

Gloria was a lifelong member of Immaculate Conception Church in Somerville and a longtime member of  the Bridgewater Seniors in Bridgewater.  She was an avid reader and loved to dance, shop, and socialize with her many, many friends.  She was a member of the Roxie's dance troupe in Bridgewater, performing with them until her mid eighties.  She drove a car and lived independently up until six months ago.  Gloria was a light to all and was the life of every party.  She cherished every second she was able to spend with her family and the feeling was more than reciprocated. Her laughter and light will remain in the hearts of all who loved her.  

"Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears... but laugh and talk of me as though I were beside you.  I LOVED  you so... 'twas Heaven here with you!"

Gloria was predeceased by her husband, William in 2001.

She is survived by her beloved children, William and his wife, Sherrie Tromp of Port Murray, Raymond of North Branch, Dona Cramer and her husband, Paul of Bridgewater and Bruce and his wife, Patty of Readington Twp.  She is also survived by her seven grandchildren, Megan, Paul, Bridget, Bruce Jr., Kristen, Tim and Jessie as well as twelve great grandchildren.
