Gloria Jacqueline Barraza 12, of Geneva, IL, passed away on Wednesday 25, 2023 as a result of complications from a mitochondrial disease she had battled with courage and dignity for her entire life.

Gloria loved going on strolls outside, and floating on lazy rivers. She could spend hours staring at her light shows dreaming.  Gloria had the most beautiful smile that could light up your soul.  If you were lucky enough to have been present when she smiled, the pure joy radiating from her would blind you. The relationship she had with her brothers, was not like any other. Gloria was a loving little sister that taught them about compassion and selflessness. 

Gloria is survived by her mother; Laura Bobbitt and her step-father; Steven Bobbitt, father; Jose Arturo Barraza. Siblings; Eric, Eduardo, Ethan and Brian Barraza; grandparents Jose Luis and Gloria Galarza, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate her life and find comfort that she is in heaven watching over us.

Gloria’s family would like to thank all of the medical staff that cared for her, including Dr. Leon G. Epstein, Dr. Bruce H. Cohen, the ICU team at Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital, and the hospice team at Lightways. Your true compassion and care for Gloria, and all of us, will not be forgotten.

A celebration of life will take place at Yurs Funeral Home, 1771 West State Street, Geneva, IL, 60134, on Thursday, November 2nd from 4-8 P.M.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Patrick Catholic Church at 6N487 Crane Road, Saint Charles, IL 60175 on Friday, November 3rd, at 10:30 A.M.

Interment will be in Prairie Cemetery in Saint Charles, IL.
