Gloria Hope Lyons


Gloria Hope Lyons, age 89, passed away Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at the Mountain View Assisted Living Facility, Lebanon, Va.

Born in Kentucky in 1931, Gloria moved to Virginia and attended Radford University. There she obtained her Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and Physics. After graduation, she worked for NASA for several years and later in life was a teacher in the Norton Public School System, sharing her love for the sciences with her numerous students. She was considered a brilliant lady, whose intelligence took her many directions that in the 1950's, was rare for a woman to go.

Gloria is survived by several nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many former students and co-workers.

There will be no public services at this time.

Care for Ms. Lyons family has been entrusted to Seaver-Brown Funeral Service & Crematory, 237 East Main Street, Marion, Va. 24354.

Gloria was remarkable at picking up dance moves from watching them at the movie theater. She only had to see them for a few seconds and she would have them. Then she would come home and show every one. This earned her the nickname Hoppy. Barbra Lyons

I did not know Ms. Lyons but she certainly sounds like someone that I would like to have met. Thank-you Ms. Lyons for making a path for women into the future.
