Gloria Rose Sampson, 78, of Halifax MA, passed away suddenly in her sleep on March 26th, 2023 from a long battle of health issues. She was the loving wife of the late Donald Sampson.
Born in Wyoming to the late Herman Lajeunesse Sr. and Rachel B. (Willets) Lajeunesse. Gloria was raised in Wyoming and graduated St. Stephens High School. Gloria also became a member of the Eastern Shoshone Tribe. She moved to Massachusetts in her twenties to raise her children. Being a caregiver was in her nature, she not only raised her two biological children but helped raise their children as well. Her first husband Charlie had two other children for whom she also admired and helped. She was always the first person to help a person in need, she spent the last years of her life after her husband’s passing opening up her home to anyone in need, providing a place to rest, home cooked meals to eat and great conversation. Gloria enjoyed camping, canoeing anything to do with nature, but she especially loved her family and friends and was always the life of the party! The family thoroughly enjoyed her “Gloria Dance” her famous bloody mary’s, pasta salad, pea soup, and meatballs. Her smile and laugh always elevated the mood and brightened your day. The memories she left are rich and wonderful and she will be deeply missed by everyone who’s ever had the pleasure of meeting her feisty, caring and beautiful soul.
Survived by her sons; Danny Lajeunesse and Craig Gaucher, four grandchildren Ranie Lajeunesse, Rochelle McCann, Kasandra Lajeunesse and Krista Gaucher, eleven great grandchildren, sisters Katherine Sylvia, Gale Washakie, Ellen Giles, Edith Johnson and Florence Petsch, brother Leo Lajeunesse and many other extended family.
