Gloria Dudley Adcock


Gloria Dudley Adcock, 75, a resident of Creedmoor went to be with Lord on September 27, 2019 with family by her side.

Gloria’s journey began on June 21, 1944 in Florence, South Carolina to the late Carol Lee & John McKiver Dudley. She was raised in Ruby, South Carolina and graduated from Ruby High School in 1962. After graduation Gloria moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, working for the Credit Bureau for seven years then, moving to Creedmoor in 1970. Gloria, blessed by a friend (Linda Tomlinson) helped her acquire a job in the lab at Duke Hospital. While gainfully employed at Duke, Gloria received her two year training and obtained her certification as a Histortechnologist. Gloria worked seven years at Duke, then 18 years at Burroughs Welcome and then returned to Duke working 15 years before retiring. Because of the love of what she did, her colleagues, doctors and other lab staff, Gloria worked four more years semi-retired.

Her Love for Traditional Country and Gospel Music brought her much joy and pleasure throughout the years, but Gospel Music gave her comfort, assurance and sustained her in the fight with cancer. Jonathan Abbott graciously shared his gift of singing gospel music just for her. Words cannot express what a Blessing this was to Gloria.

Gloria is survived by the love of her life, Bruce (PawPaw) Adcock of Creedmoor; her daughter, Angela Walls (Scott Jacobs) of Black Mountain; three grandchildren, Josh Aiken of Asheville, Scott Walls & Kris Walls both of Liberty and great grandchildren, Jorden and Alayna. Gloria also leaves behind a sister, Carol D. Greene of Bessemer City, North Carolina, one nephew, four nieces, a close cousin Linda Evitt of Creedmoor and her four-legged daughter, Precious.

Funeral services will be held Monday, September 30, 2019 at 11:00 am at First Baptist Church of Butner. Visitation will be held in the Family Life Center from 10:00-10:45 am. Burial will be in Carolina Memorial Gardens in Creedmoor.

Tenhover NP, and Dr. Jason Webb, Palliative Care, Duke Hospital Staff 9th Floor, Duke Cancer Center Staff, Duke Hospice Staff, neighbors, church and family for the loving care and support during Gloria’s fight with cancer.

    Bruce and Angie,

    I just found out that Gloria passed away in September. I am so very sorry! We used to run into one another at Duke and would enjoy a few minutes catching up. The last time I saw Gloria, she was at Duke for a follow up appointment. She and Bruce were getting something to eat in the the Duke Clinic food court. I am so glad I was able to have a few minutes to talk with her.

    I remember with great fondness all of the times I spent the night with Angie when we were in school. Gloria always made me feel welcome.

    Please know I am keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you what you need.

    In deepest sympathy,
    Rhonda Tant Rogers
