Gloria Solis McBee


Gloria Solis McBee, 86, of Irving, Texas, now free of pain and home with many of her loved ones, took her wings on Sunday, April 24, 2022.

Gloria is survived by daughter Daryl Cissi McBee-Rice and husband Murray, daughter Dolly McBee McDowell and husband Tracy. Grandchildren Trey and Darrell Glenn, Cale Rice and wife Miranda, Dalton Rice and Trevor McDowell. Great grandsons Matthew Bexar Rice and Maddox Thomas Rice and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by husband of 64 years Darrell McBee, and daughter Donna Glenn.

She was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend to all. She enjoyed her family, watching her children and grandchildren play, softball and baseball, she enjoyed her Dallas Cowboys, playing bingo and cooking for her family and friends. Gloria always made sure her family came first and loved them dearly.

Gloria’s wish was to be cremated and not to have memorial services.

    When times were tough for our family, Aunt Gloria and Uncle Duffer stepped up and provided our family with a home (at Donna, Cissy and Dolly’s expense….never told you all how much we appreciated that!). They were loving caring, are and will be greatly missed! ♥️♥️♥️ To you all!

    Aunt Gloria was a wonderful lady. Her compassion for her family was always evident. She was fun loving and had so much love to share. Her cooking was spectacular. Meals at the McBee house were definitely events to remember. We feel very fortunate to have so many beautiful memories to keep Aunt Gloria in our hearts.

    I remember when Aunt Gloria came to visit in West Virginia when I was around 10-11 years old. She made us a special treat that we had never had! Nacho chips with piece of cheese on it with a jalapeño!! We thought it was fantastic!! Think of her when I make these for my grandson’s! One special lady that always called me Collie instead of Colleen❤️

"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
