Our wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, educator, coach, and friend Gloria Schwab Richardson, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Sept. 21, 2012 after a valiant battle with breast cancer. Gloria was born Feb. 9, 1962 in Provo, Utah, to Marvin and Jeanne Schwab of Afton, Wyoming.
Gloria inspired many people. She was an all-state athlete in volleyball and basketball graduating from Star Valley High School in 1980. Gloria received her bachelors and masters degrees from Utah State University and her administrative degree. She taught middle and high school in Utah and California and served as principal at Provo Canyon School. She also taught early morning seminary in California. She received the K-12 Administrator of the Year from Utah State University in 2012 and received a standing ovation for her accomplishments.
She married her sweetheart, Terry Richardson, in 2003. Family was always first in Gloria’s life. Grandma Glori was a hero and a role model to her grandkids. We will always remember and cherish the special times and the memories made with her. She will always be with us. Gloria has a strong testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and shared it with many.
Gloria is survived by: husband, Terry; daughters, Janell (Brandon), Jenni (Jared) and grandchildren: Brickman, Teagan, Cali and soon to be born Cannon.
