Gloria “Lolly” Lynn Brufladt, age 73, of Port Charlotte, Florida, passed away at 9:30am on Monday, October 24, 2022 at Brookdale in Cape Coral, FL. She loved cooking for family and friends, and everyone loved her fried chicken. She loved being with her dog, Duchess, and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. On most weekends you could find her cutting hair at her house where her customers would be sitting in a vintage barber chair while likely enjoying a beverage.
