Gloria Jean Mathis of Wheatland, Wyoming, age 73, passed away on Monday, January 1, 2024. She was born Saturday, May 13, 1950, in Sheridan, Wyoming to Gordon L. and Dorothy (Sieczkowski) Goodmay.

Gloria attended Holy Name Catholic School and graduated from Sheridan High School.  She attended University of Wyoming for two years before moving to Denver, Colorado where she met the love of her life.  They moved to their Wyoming ranch in 1986 where they raised their children.  She worked for the Platte County Sheriff Department and graduated from the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy in Douglas, Wyoming.

Gloria enjoyed crocheting and crafting. She and her husband, Roy, enjoyed traveling. They traveled to many events to watch their children and grandchildren.  These travels included watching wrestling, basketball, gymnastics, dance recitals, theater performances, county fair exhibits, and showings.  Gloria enjoyed hosting Thanksgiving dinners for her family where they often played games the rest of the weekend.  Gloria won many awards participating in Cowboy Action Shooting competitions under the name "Morning Glory".  Gloria proclaimed Jesus Christ as her Savior and the fruits of her faith was evident to everyone who knew her. Her servant heart and love for others was reflected in later years through her participation in the Philanthropic Educational Organization.
