Gloria was born in Mandan Hospital on December 16, 1951, to Walter and Mary Charvat. When she was 17, she married Glenn C. Heidinger in Bismarck. He was a military man stationed overseas at that time and so, she spent the first year and a half near Stuttgart, Germany. While there, she gave birth to their only child, Sheila.
Gloria worked many jobs in her life, but it seemed as though she was always providing aid to someone which eventually led to the job, she loved the most, being a caregiver for the elderly. Her clients were fond of her as it was obvious that she had compassion and applied it in her work.
Gloria is survived by her husband Glenn, her daughter, Sheila (Eric) Semmens, Arthur ND, her grandson, Scott (Megan) Heidinger, Jamestown, her Mother-in-law, Alvina Heidinger, Jamestown, 5 brothers-in-law, Roger Heidinger, Dilworth MN, James Heidinger, Topeka KS, Bruce (Linda) Heidinger, Rapid City SD, Cory Heidinger, Jamestown ND, Adam Kuntz, Sturgis SD and sisters-in-law, Becky Charvat Hummel, Mandan. And Judy Heidinger, Portland, OR.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her older brother Ralph Charvat, her younger sister Elizabeth, and her younger brother Dennis.
