Gloria C. Brisman
May 20, 1930 – January 10, 2018
Highland Falls, NY
Gloria C. Brisman passed away Wednesday, January 10, 2018 in her home. She
was 87 years old. Daughter of the late Julius Dubrin and Sadie Wershba Dubrin,
Gloria was born May 20, 1930 in Brooklyn, NY. Gloria was the widow of Jerome I.
Brisman. She was the manager of the Tour Division for West Point Tours, Inc in
Vails Gate, NY.
Gloria leaves behind the tree of family and children that she and her beloved
husband Jerry grew. She will be missed by her daughter Judith Brisman, her
three sons Jeffrey, Robert and Jay and their wives Pamela, Karen and Elizabeth
along with her 9 grandchildren whom she adored and her three great
grandchildren whom she wished to know longer.
Gloria was a quiet force in the family owned West Point Tours Bus Company.
She founded the company tour guide business, designed the business logo
and became the marketing and advertising director, supporting the company
to become the outstanding tour guide service that it is today. Perhaps as important,
she was a steady, supportive "mother" to generations of tour guides,
with whom she shared years of laughter, stories and warmth. Gloria was also
an inspired founder of the "Ice Cream Shoppe" in Highland Falls, where to this
day West Pointers still meet.
But Gloria always felt like her greatest accomplishment was her family. She
created a home that was always open to others, filled with laughter and the
loving chaos of holidays and generations of children. To each of her children
and grandchildren, there was always the same goodbye-
"I want you to know that I love you all.
But each one of you is my favorite".
And she meant it.
We will miss her.
