Gloria G. Mulley

Gloria G. Mulley, 92, loving wife of the late James Mulley Jr., died of natural causes on Saturday, May 28, 2022 at her home in Beverly Farms.
Gloria was born during the early days of the Great Depression on June 24, 1929, after her parents, the late Gordon and Bessie (Ivany) Stanley relocated from Newfoundland to Jamaica, NY in search of employment.  The family returned to Gander, Newfoundland a few years later when her mother passed away, and after high school, Gloria returned on her own to the U.S. to live with relatives in Chelsea where she met Jim.
Gloria and Jim were married in 1950.  After welcoming their first two children (Jim and Debby) and living a few years in Saugus, Jim was transferred to another General Electric location in Erie, PA, where their remaining two children (Rich and Scott) were born. He was transferred back to Massachusetts in 1966 where the family resided in Ipswich until 1998, when the couple moved to Atkinson, NH.  In their later years, they also spent several months per year entertaining family and friends at their winter home in Fort Myers, FL.  Gloria spent her final two years living with her daughter, Debby, in Beverly Farms.  
Gloria dedicated her life to caring for her family. She was a loving wife for 68 years and a full-time parent who affectionately supported her children until the day she died. Possessing a keen sense of style, she enjoyed interior decorating and making her own clothes. She frequently enjoyed creative projects, including candle-making, dried flower arranging, and even painting for a time.  An avid user of technology, Gloria used her laptop and texted with her family every day until her eyesight failed, used an Apple watch through her final days, and even saved her own life at age 90 by asking Alexa to call for help when she fell and broke her neck.  A dedicated follower of Jesus Christ, Gloria was active in several churches during her lifetime.
Gloria is survived by a daughter, Dr. Debra A. Mulley of Beverly Farms; three sons, James G. Mulley and his wife Maryellen of Waco, TX, Richard A. Mulley and his wife Susan of Hamilton and K. Scott Mulley and his wife Helen of Chester, NH; seven grandchildren, Daniel, Tyler, Elizabeth, Rebecca, Gavin, and Gordon Mulley, Megan Washburn; and 3 great grandchildren, Watson, Oaklee, and Sora Mulley. She was also the sister of the late Robert Stanley of Newfoundland and the late Winston Stanley of Ontario.
Her funeral service will be held 11 AM on Friday, June 10 at First Presbyterian Church Northshore, 179 County Road, Ipswich followed by interment in the Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett. Family and friends are respectfully welcomed. Visiting hours are Thursday, June 9, 5 to 8 pm in the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home, 6 High Street, Ipswich. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in her name can be made to The Navigators, in support of Daniel Mulley (grandson of the deceased), at www.navstaff.org/mulley, or to the Salvation Army at give.salvationarmyusa.org.
