Gloria Ann Simon Ferguson, wife of Lonnie Wayne Ferguson Sr., was called from labor to reward on Monday, September 6, 2020, surrounded by her family. Gloria was born on Wednesday, April 13, 1949 at the Simon Estate, to the late Annie Lee Simon and Abner Bradley.

As a child, Gloria was brought up with Christian values in the Liberty Hill Missionary Baptist Church, a place she always referred to as the family home church. She would always come back for Family and Friends Day and various other celebrations.

Gloria was a graduate of the Dennis High School Class of 1967, where she was an outstanding basketball player and excelled in other activities. Gloria was an active member of Greater St Luke Baptist Church in Columbis, SC. Faithful in her commitment to God and her church, she served in many capacities. She served for many years as the Chairperson of the Scholarship Committee, Treasurer of the Missionary Ministry, Women's Ministry, and the Family of Benjamin Ministry.

Gloria was a servant of God and she worked until her last breath. She worked as a Counselor for SCDC from 1971-1976. In June of 1976 she became a Special Service Coordinator for the Drug Response Operation Division, a capacity he served until June 1979. From 1979 until her retirement in 2008, Gloria served as a Counselor and Office Coordinator for the SC Vocational Rehabilitation Department where she received the 2000 Statewide Facilities Case of the Year Award. She was a member of the SC Vocation Rehabilitation Association as well as a member of the SC Professional Staff Association.

She was the Treasurer of the Barhamville Real Estate Association, active member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., and a member of the NAACP.

Gloria graduated Benedict College in 1971, receiving a degree in Social Work, and later received her Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of South Carolina.

Gloria was a member of the Benedict College National Alumni Association, Recording Secretary for Benedict College Alumni College Club #2, and a member of the Central Midlands Benedict Tiger Booster Club. She was crowned Miss Benedict College National Association Queen in 2007.

Gloria obtained her Funeral Director's license in 2014, and carried on the legacy left by her grandfather.
Gloria always showed a humble compassion when helping the families of Lee and surrounding counties and showed strength when having to serve many of her own family members.

Gloria leaves to cherish her memories: her husband, Lonnie Wayne Ferguson Sr.; sons, Lonnie Wayne Ferguson Jr. of GA, and Lionel Bradford Ferguson (Margo) of NC; grandchildren, Kenyon Ferguson, Kyeran Johnson, Kassius Johnson, and Callan Prailleau-Ferguson; 3 siblings; one aunt, Carrie Simon Dizzley; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
