Gloria Othelia Moen (Hastad) was born on September 29, 1931 in Milan to Obert and Gilma Hastad. She attended Milan High School and worked as a waitress for many years. She also worked for several years as a telephone operator. She met and married Julian Moen and they resided in rural Milan. Gloria was an exceptional baker and spent a great deal of time baking doughnuts, pies (her specialty was lemon meringue), and many Norwegian goods that she would donate to church and area Christmas fairs. She was fondly known as the “lefsa lady”.  Gloria loved watching sing-a-longs and taking bus trips to various places.

Gloria is survived by several cousins and extended family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Julian; and her parents.
