Gloria Rollins Obituary

ROLLINS, Gloria C., 87, of Tappahannock, VA passed away on, Thursday, January 18, 2024. She was preceded in death by her husband, William D. (Buck) Rollins; and her infant daughter, Amy. Left to cherish her memories are her daughters, Reeva Tilley (Bill), Angie Miles (Robert), and Charlene Rollins (Keith); her six grandchildren, Satanta, Shannon, Shyanne, Chris, Brad, and Rob; her seven great grandchildren, Jordan, Grady, Liam, Lance, Colton, Skylar, and Milana; her one great-great grandchild, Aden; her four sisters; her three sisters-in-law; and a host of nieces and nephews. Gloria retired from the International Paper Company and was a tribal elder of the Rappahannock Tribe of Virginia. The joy of her life was the annual “Girls Trips” she took with her three daughters, visiting most of the United States, Costa Rica, the Bahamas and Canada. She catalogued the vacations and sent postcards to special family and friends about her adventures. Her family always came first, and she enjoyed cooking her famous dishes for them her way for the holiday meals. Christmas was her favorite holiday, and she went to great lengths to decorate her home inside and out. She was meticulous about keeping a well-manicured lawn as she wheeled around the yard on her riding lawnmower, and of course, no one could cut her grass like she did. She enjoyed reading, watching the news and keeping up with current events and politics. Most of all, she enjoyed it when the great grandchildren came for a visit. She also enjoyed many phone conversations with special friends and family. Gloria was a strong, independent, Christian woman and she instilled those strength and values in her daughters. She will truly be missed by all who loved her. There will be a private graveside service with only close family members and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to be made in her name to the Rappahannock Indian Baptist Church, C/o Treasurer, 7201 Courthouse Road, Spotsylvania, Virginia 22551 or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN, 38105.
