Gloria Cecilia Ebbesen

June 8, 1953 ~ June 23, 2022 (age 69)


Gloria Cecilia Ebbesen (‘Cessy’), of New Fairfield, CT died peacefully at Regional Hospice on June 23, 2022, after a valiant battle against cancer with her family by her side. She was 69 years of age.

Born on June 8, 1953, at the Embassy of El Salvador in Honduras, daughter to the late José Felipe and Maria Lydia (Zepeda) Castellanos. Gloria married the love of her life Robert Aage Ebbesen (‘Bob’) on November 29, 1985. Together they moved to New Fairfield, CT from New York City 26 years ago.

Gloria immigrated to the United States when she was 15 years old. Gloria was an accountant and bookkeeper for many companies over the years. One of her favorite jobs was being a Spanish teacher at the Emmanuel Lutheran School in Danbury. Gloria was devoted to her religion and to God. She had a strong faith in the Lord and could always be found reading her bible. She also loved to shop and loved watching her Hallmark movies. Gloria was never on time for anything and, if she was on time, it was because she was told the incorrect start time. But she was a generous, loving person who always provided for and helped others.

Gloria is not only survived by her loving husband Bob, but also her three sons whom she adored, Javitt Joseph Adili of Chicago, IL, Niels P. Ebbesen (Lauren) of New Fairfield, CT, Kristian Ebbesen (Nikki) of New Fairfield, CT; her siblings with whom she shared years of laughter and adventure, Marissa Zuchelli, Felipe A. Castellanos, and Marta Lydia Perret; several nieces and nephews; and her dog Zoe and her granddogs, Dakota and Kenobi.

A service will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2022, at 11 am at the Congregational Church of New Fairfield (20 Gillotti Road, New Fairfield, CT 06812). After the service, a reception in Gloria’s memory will be held at the New Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department Firehouse (302 Ball Pond Road, New Fairfield, CT 06812).
