Gloria Jean Amendola February 11th, 1956 – April 4th, 2021 (Age 65)
Gloria Amendola passed away peacefully on (Easter) Sunday, April 4th at her home. Born in Roswell, New Mexico, Gloria was an avid traveler who lived in many places throughout her life. Since 1990, she called Milford, Connecticut home. Gloria is survived by her only child Michael Amendola, her brother Richard Serino, close cousin Victor Serino, and Aunt Jane Cannici. She was the daughter of the late Albert and Martha Serino.
Gloria had a zest for life that seems to be reserved for only a select few. Her radiating smile, strong convictions, unconditional love and Italian background created a unique force always in the forefront of her 65 years. She lived in her truth from a very young age and always spoke her mind. While she worked as a Paralegal in a variety of law practices, she came into her own in the early 2000s as a researcher, intuitive, Reiki Master, group facilitator, Shamanic drummer and certified Dream Teacher. All of these experiences and travels led her to exploring her creative side. Around this time, she authored a play “Magdalene’s Mind” which was produced nationally in New York and Seattle. From there she wrote and published 5 books with her 6th book currently in the works that the family will publish at a future date. Her life was filled with a bold passion for researching and exploring the stories and history of the Holy Grail mysteries, as well as a fierce admiration for the Divine Feminine principles. These interests led her to an extraordinary life of travel around the world and a connection with her home away from home, Rennes le Chateau. Her worldwide friendships resulted in successful tours, conferences, dream work, intuitive readings, Magdalene circles, as well as a historic trip to Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland to be inducted into the order of the Knights Templar.
When she wasn’t researching, exploring the World, and mastering the Mysteries, Gloria loved to eat and cook “good” food with her family. She hosted many Sunday dinners as well as countless Holidays that always highlighted her outstanding cooking. Her eggplant parmesan and cheesecake were legendary and will truly be missed.
Friends and family may visit Maresca & Sons Funeral Home at 592 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT on Saturday, April 10th from 1:00 – 4:00pm. A small private ceremony will take place in addition to remarks from close family.
