Obituary

GLORIA BROWN McDOWELL, age 91. Wife of the late Robert C. McDowell; mother of Bridge McDowell of Kitty Hawk, NC and Spicer McDowell (wife Anne) of Pepper Pike, OH; proud grandmother of Bridge William, Madison Morgan, Keenan Robert, Miles Spicer and Pyper Jamison; sister of the late Dorothy Boyer.

Gloria was born in Cleveland and was a lifelong resident of Northern Ohio. She attended Collinwood High School and studied drama at the University of Iowa. A summer job during college at a Cleveland radio station turned into a 15-year career on the air. After a 5-year run as a talk radio host, Gloria moved into a television talk and interview show when television was first introduced to the Cleveland market. Gloria Brown was known as the "Gal on the Go" and she co-hosted the Mildred and Gloria show for 10 years on the Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC. She retired to start her family in Bath, Ohio where she lived for the last 55 years. An avid patron of the arts, Gloria constantly supported and extolled the virtues of the Cleveland art, music and theater scene. She became a Browns fan as her husband and sons introduced her to the game. She loved to travel and spend time with her grandchildren. She remained involved in cultural, community and business activities until she was over 90.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate contributions in memory of Gloria to the Cleveland Play House, 1901 E. 13th St., Suite 200, Cleveland, Ohio 44114. Funeral Services Private. Interment Private, Ira Cemetery, Bath, Ohio.
