Hitchcock, Gloria (Lamb)

Gloria (Lamb) Hitchcock, 66

May 23, 1952 – July 29, 2018

Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Friend

Ended her journey on July 29th with her family at her side.  She will forever be in our hearts.

Predeceased by her parents Earl Lamb and Elizabeth (Shupe) Smith

Survived by her devoted husband of 47 years, George Hitchcock, daughter Ann and her husband Jon, son Jeremy and his wife Lisa, beloved grandchildren, Samantha, Ian, Chloe and her sister Lisa.

Known for her ease in conversation even with total strangers, she loved to connect with people and to help connect other people with each other.  She paired strength and determination with grace in her battle with Cancer and kept her focus on making memories with her family and friends.

A celebration of Gloria’s life will be held Sunday, August 5th at 1 PM at the First Congregational Church in Canandaigua.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made to either Ontario-Yates Hospice or the American Cancer Society

The family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support in many heart-felt forms from too many people to name individually, but including: Her Doctors, Nurses and Caregivers, the Hospice Nurses and volunteers, family, friends and neighbors through either prayers and/or visits, and even random acts of kindness from total “strangers”.

  5. This is such sad news. I have fond memories of times together as teens – cheerleading, band, class plays, neighbors and friends. Peace to her family and loved ones. May your many wonderful memories give you peace….Chriss

  6. I had the good fortune of meeting Gloria several years ago through interactions with the RHHIO team. From the moment I met her, she showed grace, humor, and calm insights into any conversation we had. She was a remarkable person and I was blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know her. My thoughts and prayers go out to all her family.

  7. My condolences on your loss. I had worked with Gloria at Kodak and she was always great to work with, and a valued team member. She will be missed.
