November 2, 1926 - December 13, 2021
Gloria Louise Ensberg, née Eltwick, was born November 2, 1926, to Ludwig Elias Eltwick and Clara Louise (Bosath) Eltwick, and left her earthly body on December 13, 2021, with her family at her side. Born and raised in South Los Angeles, she spent her childhood riding the Red Line Streetcar, and going to the Pike in Long Beach. She worked at Mannings Café in downtown Los Angeles as well as Dunn and Bradstreet. She attended Trinity Lutheran School, Fremont High School, East Los Angeles Community College, and the Famous Artist Schools. Her parents Ludwig and Clara raised her in a large household of 5 Aunties, grandparents, and her 2 brothers Louis, and Bobby. She married Robert Ferman and had 2 children, Randal and Lynn. Together they enjoyed many Jeep trips to the deserts of the Southwest. Gloria met the love for her life, Stuart Ensberg while living in Monterey Park. They married in 1970 and blended their families beautifully while enjoying all the excitement a big family offers. Together they loved to travel including trips to Europe to explore their native Norway, enjoying the cities and fjords. Between traveling and enjoying work life at Sears, Gloria truly lived a creative existence-sewing, painting, and creating masterful quilts were among her many artistic talents. Life eventually led the Ensberg’s to Las Vegas for ten years of desert living. Gloria made many friends and participated in the High Desert Quilters, winning many awards and accolades along the way. Upon their return to California, the Ensberg’s resided in San Dimas, enjoying the proximity to friends, and loved ones. Eventually moving north to be closer to daughter Lynn, in San Luis Obispo, Gloria and Stuart made a home at The Manse on Marsh dazzling all her friends and caregivers with her vintage Barbie collection and weekly fashion shows. Truly gifted in the art of dress making, Gloria has a you tube series documenting the fashions of her vintage Barbies as well as a greeting card line. Gloria’s creative endeavors will be missed, especially the personalized birthday cards each year and unique Christmas gifts! As a lifelong woman of faith, her family is comforted in knowing she has rejoined her dear Stuart in Heaven. Gloria is survived by her children; Lynn and Dale McCrudden, Randy and Sandee Ferman, Martin and Laura Ensberg and Stephen and Terri Ensberg, as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Gloria’s family would like to thank Dr. Steven Sainsbury for his exceptional care and kindness over the years for both Gloria and Stuart. We would also like to thank Central Coast Home Health and Hospice, Jarrell and SC Marcos for the exceptional loving care they gave to her at the Park Grove in San Luis Obispo, and Father Ian Dellinger of St. Stephens Episcopal Church, for his friendship and support. Gloria will be forever in our hearts. She made the world a better place.
