Gloria Mercedes (Walker) Zaccardo fondly known as Mickie, peacefully passed away on the afternoon of June 2, 2021 with her son Tom and daughter Lesly by her side. Gloria was preceded in death by her Husband and constant companion Louis, her parents Joseph and Anna Chwalka and her brother Robert Morris.

Gloria was born in Manhattan, NJ. Her parents were born in Poland, and upon their arrival to the United States their name was changed to Walker.

They loved spending long summers at Uncle Doug and Aunt Marys Maine cabin. In 1994 the couple moved to Mays Landing NJ and purchased a 31’ foot Silverton which they kept in Beach Haven NJ. They loved fishing and joined the Beach Haven Marlin and Tuna Club. With their children they won the Shark tournament 3 consecutive times.

Mickie was a wonderful homemaker, loved reading and doing puzzles. In her younger years she enjoyed sewing and made many beautiful outfits for her daughter Lesly, who has continued the talent she learned from her mother.
