    Gloria Rose (Lajeunesse) 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. She was 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.
