Gloria P. Nissen Gloria P. Nissen


Gloria Patricia Nissen, 64, of Lublin, after a long battle with cancer, passed away peacefully with her family at her side, on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020, at Clark County Rehab and Living Center in Owen. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 14 at St. Mary’s Polish National Catholic Church in Lublin with Rev. Marion Talaga officiating. Private family interment will be held at a later date. Visitation will be held at the church on Saturday from 9 a.m. until the time of the service.

Gloria Fryza was born on March 17, 1955 at Victory Memorial Hospital in Stanley, to Edmund and Delores (Ruda) Fryza. She was raised on the family farm, attended Lublin Elementary School and graduated from Gilman High School in 1973. After completing her education, Gloria worked at Phillips Plastics in Medford for 27 years. She was united in marriage to Harold R. Nissen on March 27, 1982. Gloria later owned and operated the Sunset Drive Inn in Owen, and worked at the Gilman Phoenix House in Gilman. In addition to raising her three children and working outside of her home, Gloria also started her own soap manufacturing company, Gloria’s Herbal Bath, which she ran until entering Clark County Rehab and Living Center in 2020. Gloria had many interests, but especially loved baking, gardening and anything to do with homemaking. While her children and grandchildren were her “pride and joys”, Gloria always found time to spend with other family members and her many friends.

Gloria is survived by her three sons, Adam Fryza, Karl Nissen and Gared Nissen, all of Lublin; three siblings, Linda Ramirez of Menomonie, Jeff (Diane) Fryza of Lublin and Lori L. Alger (Dave Lutz) of Thorp; and nieces, nephews and many friends.

Gloria was preceded in death by her parents; and her brother, Gary M. Fryza.

Special thanks are offered to her entire family and her amazing supporters throughout these trying years, Shannon Wry, Marty Riehle, Angie Haroldson, Waylon Brunsell, Kent Brecht, Chris Hoelliwier, Elsie Hochstedler, Andrew Madlon, Kirk Dall and any others involved.
