Marblehead — Gloria Davis Cameron, a longtime resident of Marblehead, died on May 20. She was 97 years young and an avid reader and lover of the arts; she was strong, intelligent, and sharp-witted with a touch of sass, right to the very end.
Born in Winchester, Mass., on April 7, 1916, she was the daughter of the late Dr. Nelson Clifton Davis and Marie Louise Davis, an artist.
She attended Northfield Mount Herman School and Katherine Gibbs School, and was a certified dental assistant. She was employed as a bookkeeper at Gauthier Motors in Salem for many years. After her retirement, she worked part time at Hunt Memorial Hospital in Danvers, where she also did volunteer work.
Mrs. Cameron is survived by her daughter, Joan Cameron Dyer of Marblehead; five granddaughters, Susan Mercer, Liz Parker, Hanna Dyer, Cary Dyer, and Joan Payne; two grandsons, William W. Dyer III, and Daniel A. Dyer; 12 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.
