Gloria "Sis" F. (Martineau) Quam, 90, lifelong Superior resident, died on Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012, at Villa Marina Health & Rehabilitation Center in Superior.
She was born on Jan. 4, 1922, in Superior, Wis. to William E. and Estelle J. (Gouge) Martineau. She was a great great-granddaughter to Chief Joseph Osage, Superior, Wis..
She was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church.
Sis was a very loving and devoted mother and grandmother who felt her family was the most important area of her life. She was loved by many and all.
She lives on in our hearts as love never dies. She also lives on in our memories. As we go on about our lives a certain song or smell or sound will help us to remember, and we may laugh out loud and share the memory or we many cry and keep the memory to ourselves. Her final days were spent surrounded by her loved ones encompassed in the familiar love she was always known.
Gloria is survived by a daughter, Sandra (Donald) Wheeler, Superior, Wis; sons, Michael Quam, South Range, Wis. and John (Lori) Quam, Superior, Wis.; grandchildren, Donald Wheeler, Jr., Nicole Gokey, Heidi Majesty, Michael (Renee) Quam, Jr., Christopher Charles Quam, Chase Russell Quam, Jon Michael Quam and Autumn Mist Quam; one great-grandchild, Kylie Maciejeski and several nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her parents, husband John Quam, sisters, Faith, Helen (Gloria's twin), Joan, Colleen and Opal, brothers Paul, Frances, Leo, Russell, George, Irwin, Clement, Sonny, Wally, and Earl.
Visitation will begin at 10 a.m., Friday, Nov. 2, at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church and continue until the 11 a.m. Memorial Mass with Rev. James Tobolski as celebrant.
Gloria's family would like to offer their heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the staff at Villa Marina for the wonderful care they offered Gloria during her stay.
Should friends desire, memorials may be made in Gloria's name to the Toys for Tots Program located at the Superior Fire Hall.
