She was born between Clifton and Cranfills Gap on Dec. 20. 1913, to the late Lucian and Allie Mae Beach Polk. Following graduation from Clifton High School, she worked for her father in his restaurant and also as a switchboard operator before accepting W.O. Gloff's proposal of marriage. The couple were married in the preacher's home on May 15, 1936 and had a honeymoon in New Orleans. Mrs. Gloff was a devoted wife, mother, and homemaker. She loved to cook and try new recipes. Her family and guests liked to sample her endeavors. Collecting cookbooks was one of her hobbies.

There were happy memories of having the visiting preacher for dinner. Church attendance at the Clifton Church of Christ was regular. Having four generations in church was a joy and blessing to her. She demonstrated a servant's spirit as she cleaned the church building for many years with three children in tow, taught Bible class, and for over twenty years, took care of preparing the communion service. Bible study was an important part of her life. She like to study her Bible lessons and read Christian books and papers.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her brothers and sisters, Beach Polk, Gerald Polk, Doris Christine Taylor, of Clifton, and Johnie Doggett, of Austin.

She is survived by her children, Wayne Gloff, Darla Gloff Dill, of Cleburne, and Harold Gloff, of Bellingham, Wash.; grandchildren, Michael, Lorie (Hanshew), and David Gloff, Diane Dill, of Arlington and Devin Dill, of Austin; great-grandchildren include Colton, Weston, Grant, Garrett, Madison Gloff, and Landon Hanshew.
