Gloria Squitiro

Gloria Squitiro has been married to her husband, former mayor of Kansas City Mark Funkhouser (Funk), 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 City Hall while her husband was in office. A graduate of Belmont University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, Gloria has been published in Harper’s Magazine. May Cause Drowsiness and Blurred Vision: The Side Effects of Bravery, is her debut memoir, the first in the C’mon Funk series. Gloria lives in Washington, DC, surrounded by some of her flock.
