Acosta de Gonzalez, Gloria Isabel, 86, of Chesterfield County, VA went to be with our Lord on December 1, 2019.
She was born October 15, 1933, in Bogotá Colombia to Julio Cesar Acosta and Cruz Herminda Rodriguez. Gloria is survived by her husband of 52 years, Hernando Gonzalez of Chesterfield; sisters, Clara Romero (Luiz) of Newport News, and Blanca Acosta of Chesterfield; daughter, Gloria Andrea Leonard (Michael); grandchildren, Kristen and Haley Myers, Dexter, Lanah, and Logan Leonard, all of Chesterfield.
Gloria was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and sister. Family was the most important part of her life. Gloria had an uncanny ability to strike a conversation with anyone she met thus creating many friendships. She truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; gardening (she could make any plant grow), decorating for the holidays, but especially for Christmas as it was her favorite season. Later in life, her love of arts and crafts, adult coloring books which she would complete with amazing detail, and she always loved having friends over for coffee and a nice chat. Her greatest joy were her grand-kids. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, December 14, 2019, at 10 a.m., at St. Augustine Catholic Church, 4400 Beulah Road, N. Chesterfield, VA 23237. A reception will be held immediately following the service.
