She was born Sept. 28, 1931, the first of four children, born to Nathan Mark and Isabelle Gohs, in the Los Angeles suburb of El Sereno, Calif., where she attended elementary and high school. She was a kind, principled, creative and loving lady. Gloria was loved and admired by family, friends and all who met her. Her son Bob, having honorably served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps and was taken tragically too soon. The true love of her life, Jay Foster, passed away a few years back. Gloria is survived by a loving brother, Joe; and dozens of wonderful nieces, nephews, and all their children and grandchildren. She will be forever with us and remembered for a legacy of kindness, generosity and compassion. Her phone calls, discussions and advice will be missed! Whatever the topic, she was there. Always a fine driver, she drove to the very end. Her talents were many. She won first place on a nativity scene she created from scratch (paper mache) when she lived in the Palm Springs, Calif. area. Her mind was cutting edge sharp to the very end. During the "Radio Mystery Area," she always knew the bad guy way in advance. It can truly be said the world is better because of her having been here.

HALL, ROGER  
ROGER HALL Roger Warren Hall, 90, a longtime musical icon of Las Vegas, passed away peacefully and in comfort, as he drifted into the twilight of his choosing April 4, 2016. He was born July 8, 1925, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Roland DeWitt Hall and Genevieve Arline Wadsworth. His family moved to Erie, Pa., where Roger grew up and became infatuated with music. Roger's early inspiration coming from his mother, a ragtime piano player, his father, who sang in the barbershop quartet and saxophonist, Charlie Parker. Both of his parents were very supportive of Roger's love of music. Roger started out with the clarinet but later began playing the alto sax, flute and piccolo. Roger served in the U.S. Army Air Corps, where he continued his love for music, playing with the military bands throughout his tour of duty. Upon his discharge from active duty, Roger quickly hooked up with Big Bands and played consistently throughout the eastern United States. In 1954, Roger made the decision to relocate to a small little desert oasis in Nevada, Las Vegas, where he heard that they were about to build a new hotel and casino community with a need for musicians and aspiring artists to support the expected entertainment. Upon his arrival in 1954, there were only a few hotels on the strip. The Desert Inn's band leader at the time had gone home to Pennsylvania for Christmas, where he had the opportunity to hear Roger play, and two weeks later he hired Roger as first chair in a relief band. Little did he know that it was only the beginning of an illustrious career that would span over 30 years in Las Vegas backing some of the greatest entertainers of all time, including Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr. and the rest of the "Rat Pack" to name a few. When the music scene began to slow down with recorded music making its way into the hotels, Roger became general manager of a photo studio, and later shifted his focus and started a television and film production business creating TV commercials and convention sales films for many of the top Las Vegas hotel/casinos. At the age of 59, Roger took up ballroom dancing where he met and married Helen Schwem, his dancing partner and the love of his life. Together, they entered and won many ballroom dance contests, and spent many happy weekends at their favorite place, Disneyland. They especially loved to travel around the world on cruises, where Roger was always ready and prepared to sit in with the band. In his 70's, and at Helen's urging, Roger returned to his first love, Music. He continued to play right up until the last few months of his life. At 90 years of age, Roger still played music every day, practicing daily at home, as well as playing in big band events. Four nights a week, Roger would also play with his long time musician pals who shared his same passion for music, at their special place known as the "Garage," a musician's sanctuary built by another long-time Las Vegas musician Jim Hemming. Roger was preceded in death by his lovely wife, Helen. He is survived by his daughter, Marni Hall Elen, and her husband, Bob Elen; son, Mitch Hall; granddaughter, Michele Hall; and stepchildren, Bill and Esther Schwem, and Kurt and Glenda Schwem, and their children. His life was an extraordinarily mosaic and all that loved him will grieve, but will have an everlasting place in their memories for all that he was. The world has lost a bright light and jazz musician that only those that knew Roger or have seen him perform could truly understand. His name was Roger Hall.
