Two memories: (1) Gloria and I clerked for Pierce Couch prior to law school graduation. At one of their office parties, she brought a cream cheese-bacon-green onion dip with crackers. I loved it, got the recipe from her, titled it "Gloria Sue Miller White's Dip-Spread" and made it often during the next 30-whatever years. Some years back, the first time my Florida daughters and their families had to evacuate temporarily from the Atlantic to the Gulf Coast, they made the dip for their hosts and all the guests. Thus it became forever (and fondly) known as "Hurricane Dip" and is often requested, although I still like the GSMWDS name on my recipe card! (2) The day that bar exam results were pos...ted, as I was walking back up the incline from checking the list, no longer terrified, my heart no longer in my throat, Gloria hurried down past me, not acknowledging me in any way. It took me a minute to realize that of course she was quite single-minded with HER heart in HER throat. And I can't tell you how many times I've remembered that and wished that I'd been alert enough to tell her she was on the list and thereby save her 90 seconds or so of that terror. :) She was one of my favorite people at Pierce Couch. My heart goes out to her family.Read more

My son, Colin Austin, was Gloria’s daughter Sarah’s age. They attended school together from the time they were two years old at Southern Hills mother’s day out. Our children were in the same preschool, Chisholm Elementary School, Cimarron Middle School and Memorial High School until their graduation. Gloria’s daughters were her greatest joy and I spent many years being home room mom with her whenever Sarah and my son Colin had the same teacher. Her children gave her such joy and pride that they were her greatest priority in her life. In fact, I never even knew she was also an attorney, despite the fact that we spent countless hours together coordinating school parties, plays, and hel...ping the teachers out any time they needed a hand. She was such positive person and her joy was contagious to all those around her. If our kids were in the same class, I knew I had to be at information day before the school doors opened because she would be there too, always wanting to be there volunteering to help out the teachers in any capacity. Her experience made our job working as a team a breeze and we formed an instant friendship. I’ll never forget her smile and outgoing personality. For her life to be taken so soon and in such an unexpected and shocking way, came as an incomprehensible shock to our family. I’m comforted to know that she left this world in the pursuit of her passion, doing what she loved. Our love, prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to Gloria’s family. We will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers. She will be greatly missed. Warm regards, Gina AustinRead more
