Gloria was born on September 14th, 1936 to Mark and Amanda (Steen) Holman in Odessa, MN. Gloria grew up and attended school in Odessa. After graduating high school she moved to the cities where she attended Business College and worked for Prudential Insurance.

On June 27, 1955 she was united in marriage to Douglas J. Sorenson in Louisburg, MN. They farmed and raised their family near rural Louisburg. Douglas passed away in 1994. Gloria continued to live on the farm. Gloria worked as a home health aide for many years for the Madison, Appleton and Ortonville Home Health agencies.

Gloria enjoyed farm life, taking care of family and good times with friends. Some of her favorite pastimes were reading, stitching, cooking and baking as well as shopping. She thoroughly enjoyed the summer lake vacations. One of the highlights in her life was a trip to the Holy Land where she said she got to see where Jesus walked and rode a camel.
