Gloria Jean (Baxter) Kulinich, 78, of East Caln, passed away on Thursday, December 30th, 2021 at her son's home, surrounded by her loved ones.  

Born at her childhood home in Coatesville, she was the daughter of the late Alice (Haines) and Jacob Baxter.  Gloria was a graduate of Scott High School in Coatesville.  She worked at Pactiv in Downingtown for over 30 years, retiring two years ago.  

Gloria enjoyed spending time with her son and grandchildren at the family’s shore house in southern Delaware.  She loved eating seafood, especially crab legs.  Gloria was a good cook who loved making food for her family’s holidays and picnics. She was kind, caring, and generous with her time, money, and love.  Forever thoughtful, always buying or making someone, something, she had a heart of gold.

The most important thing in Gloria’s life was her family and friends. She loved spending time with them doing things or just chatting. She made a lifetime of memories, all of which were well documented through the photographs she took at every event. Gloria will be painfully missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is survived by her son Ike Baxter, husband of Jeanie, of Coatesville; grandsons, Ikey, Devon, and Derek, and granddaughters, Jenna, and Zoe; and her siblings, Allan Baxter of Grand Prairie, Texas, Donnie Baxter of Kettering, Ohio, Dave Baxter of Ronks, Jake Baxter of Thorndale, Peggy Baxter of Phoenixville, Phyllis Loftus of Pomeroy, and Carol Hanna of Downingtown.  

Gloria was predeceased by her siblings, Dolores Thomas and Robert Baxter.

I was so sorry to hear about Gloria.   We had many fun times when we were both living in Pomeroy.  We were at the Pomeroy Firehouse Dances every week. We reconnected on FB several years ago.   May your many memories of Gloria get you through this most difficult time.
