Obituary

Gloria (Hollen) Guimont, age 75, passed away on October 6 after a 7 ½ year battle with breast cancer at her home in The Villages, FL.  She was born and raised in Prairie Farm, WI.  After graduating from high school and moving to Minneapolis she met her husband of 54 years, Dennis Guimont.  Together they raised three loving children and six grandchildren.

Survivors include husband Dennis, sister Arlene (Hollen) Irons, children: Vincent (Mary) Guimont, Grant Guimont, and Angela (Scott) Sandok.  Her grandchildren: Natalie, Colleen, Maria, Joseph, Anthony and Julia.  She was preceded in death by her parents Lawrence and Antonette (Sirianni) Hollen and brother-in-law John Irons.

Throughout her life, Gloria was a constant and selfless contributor to her communities.  Her volunteer activities included church, civic, education, and fund-raising projects.  While raising her family, she worked at Mpls. Chamber of Commerce, Whitney Management Co., and Haskells in Minneapolis.  She was an avid gardener and her flowers were always the envy of her neighbors.  She also enjoyed golf and her many social groups.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at ST. OLAF CATHOLIC CHURCH, 215 S. 8th Street, Minneapolis at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017.  Visitation will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the church. Burial will take place in Hudson, WI.  On-line condolences can be made at baldwincremation.com. Donations can be made to:  Breast Cancer Research Foundation at give.bcrf.org; Moffitt Cancer Center at give.moffitt.org and Cornerstone Hospice at web.cshospice.org.

    Dennis and Family
    My thoughts and prayers are with you this day. Gloria was a worker in Gods kingdom and so family oriented. May God strengthen you as you face the days to come.
    She leaves many memories as cousins together, during childhood.

    Dennis and family; I was so sorry to hear about Gloria's passing. She will be greatly missed. I enjoyed seeing her at our class get togethers over the years. Sorry I cannot be there on Sat but will keep you and the family in my prayers. I will be sending a memorial to one of the suggested cancer groups from the class of 1959.

    I remember fondly traveling regularly to Prairie Farm to visit my Hollen cousins when I was a young boy. I was kind of an awkward kid and didn't do well at sports. Gloria, and her sister Arlene, always made me feel important and accepted. As a result, I always looked up to the two of them. As Gloria grew older, she never lost that character. Later in life when we met at Hollen Family reunions, it was so pleasant reconnect. Mary and I wish to extend our condolences to the family of a great lady.
