Gloria Denise (Jimmerson) Mayer

December 25, 1960 ~ February 14, 2021 (age 60)

God blessed Mr. Clovis T. and Mrs. Virginia Jimmerson with a baby girl on Christmas Day, December 25, 1960. They named her Gloria Denise. The family resided in Toone, of Hardeman County, Tennessee, surrounded my family that laid the foundation for the baby’s future love and concern for her family and community. She would become a leader and a nurturer as an example for future generations.

Her graveside service was held on Thursday February 25, 2021 at 1:00 pm in the Jimmerson Cemetery with Pastor Robert Wooden in charge with burial in the Jimmerson Cemetery and Dixie Funeral Home in charge of the professional service.

Living in Toone, Gloria attended Toone Elementary school and graduated from Bolivar Central High School. During this time she confessed Christ as her personal savior and was baptized at Clover Chapel Church in Cloverport, Tennessee. She served as an usher at the church. She also developed her skills and pursued her passion for cooking, basketball and softball.

Occupations spanned across the gamut of various positions with Kilgore, Hart and Cooling, Sears Department Store, Hardeman County Schools, and finally the Hardeman County Court House from where she retired as a Circuit County Clerk. Her personal life led to her husband, Mr. Raymond Tim Mayer. After 16 years of dating, they were united in Holy Matrimony on October 10, 1999. She loved young people and always welcomed them. She and Tim were their cheerleaders and motivators. They enjoyed encouraging chil-dren to pursue their dreams. Along with her biological children she poured her spirit into Danita Shaw Fowler, Jaleigh Turner, Mia Niles, and Alaia Skye. Happiness was always a part of her demeanor.

Reminiscing on Gloria’s life will bring memories of a life of love, family, perseverance and strength. Working hard for her family and ensuring their well-being, development, and pursuit of happiness, Gloria set the bar. Work hard, play hard, live, laugh and enjoy life to the fullest. She invested her time in the next generations so they may seek God for themselves. The epitome of a true champion as more than just a mother to her children, Gloria was fired up as a woman of action and faith to the world she encountered.

Inspiring are the words of Proverbs 18:24, “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Indeed a friend, sticking closer than a brother. Even though her son, Cortez Jimmerson, preceded her in death at a very young age, Gloria continued to weather the storms of life and be a pillar of strength. She gave of herself and poured that passion into her family and community. In addition to her son and father, who preceded her in death, are her siblings: Wallace and Sharon Jimmerson, and her father- and mother-in-law: Mr. Kenneth and Mrs. Bobbie Mayer.

After a lengthy illness, Gloria Jimmerson Mayer, transitioned on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2021. A day of Love, to remember her legacy of love for all of us- her loving husband, mother, children: Maronda Turner (Bernard), Laronda Woods (Marshall), Alicia Stanley (Wiluardo), and; siblings: Clovis Jimmerson, Jr. (Ginger), Daphne Gibbs (Michael), brothers-in-law: Ted Mayer (Sonya) and Todd Mayer (Donna); grandchil-dren: Alexandria Shaw, Kylan Turner, Antavious Shaw, Olivia Shaw, Vantez Sain, Cordarius Stanley, JaCorey Stanley, Corbyn Stanley, a multitude of other relatives and friends.
