Gloria Larkin ’68

6 January 2017

Class: 1968

Major: Economics

Deceased: 2011

I was able to locate Gloriann Larkin’s sister, Theresa, in El Salvador.  She told me that Gloriann passed away 5 years ago (2011), 13 years after a horrible accident in Laos, Nigeria.  She was with Citibank of Africa.  Gloriann was my roommate for 3 years at Carleton.  I am saddened to learn of her death and regret the loss of connection over the years.

Finding that I won’t be seeing Gloriann is probably the saddest thing about reunion. Gloriann and I met through the college work department. They had found her a job as a nanny near where I lived in the western suburbs of Minneapolis and got us together. It was a great summer and we were close friends ever after and roommates the year Renae went down to El Salvador for a semester. Can’t thank Renae enough for sleuthing through the Spanish documents to find a way to contact Gloriann’s sister!
