About Gloria

Gloria has been married to her husband, former mayor of Kansas City, Mark “Funk” Funkhouser, for almost 40 years. She became his campaign manager by default, and has the rare distinction of being the only First Lady in America legally banned from the City Hall while her husband was in office.


Squitiro has an INFJ (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging) personality:  She is an advocate and a dreamer who takes concrete steps to realize her goals and make a lasting positive impact. Helping others is her purpose, but not through charity work. Her real passion is to get to the heart of issues so people need not be rescued at all.

A graduate of Belmont University with a bachelors in psychology, Gloria has been published in Harper’s Magazine. May Cause Drowsiness and Blurred Vision is her debut memoir, the first in the C’mon Funk series. It is available in print and e-book formats on Amazon.
