Gloria Annette Bonin Trebisovsky passed away peacefully on August 7, 2020 at age 95. She was the daughter of Edward and Irene Bonin and was born at home at 2625 Fillmore Street in Minneapolis just a half block down from the corner house her Dad later bought. Back when she was born there was a woodstove in the dining room that heated the whole house.
Gloria went to Prescott Elementary school and then graduated from St. Anthony high school in 1942. When she was in high school they had half year classes so she went some in the summer so her dad bought her a bike to go to school in the warmer weather. Otherwise she regularly took the city bus.
Right after high school in the summer she worked at the courthouse as a typist working on tax statements. In the fall after high school she started working at Investors Syndicate downtown which later became Investors Diversified.
On May 17, 1947 she married John Trebisovsky. Together they had 4 children and Gloria stayed home with them until their teen years when she worked part time at the Sears catalog department in St. Anthony Village. She was always easy to talk to and she would always try to treat each of the children equally.
Gloria remained active in her Catholic faith at St. Charles. She was active in the Mother’s club as president, was a funeral rosary volunteer belonged to the senior VIPs and went to daily mass in her later years until no longer able to do so. Always had her daily prayers booklets next to the chair she sat at.
Outside of church she remained active with all her lady friends from the old neighborhood on Buchanan Street where they met monthly for card club.
Gloria and John were very active in the Postal Workers Union where John was a union steward and she was president of the auxiliary. They were famous for making sloppy Joe's for the union meetings and we mean hundreds of sloppy joes.
Gloria love being involved in politics and even worked for Hubert H Humphrey's elections for a couple of years.
Even though she was French and German she belonged along with her daughter Annette to the Rusyn Association of Minnesota because John had been Rusyn. Here she also helped out with various activities.
