Marriage, Divorce and Re-marriage

Gloria Darlene Fox married for the first time at the age of 19 in 1971 to Franklin Thomas Fox, a parole officer.

They had two daughters together, Kristi Michelle Fox (born 1974), and Meghan Fox (born 1986).

However, after 18 years of marriage, they divorced in 1989.

Following her divorce, Gloria raised her two daughters as a single mother for seven years until she married Tony Tonahio in 1996, who was 19 years older than her.

A devoted Pentecostal Christian with traditional views, Tony set strict rules for his family. This meant that Gloria and her daughters couldn’t have a typical, socially liberal lifestyle.

Frustrated by these restrictions, Meghan left home at an early age and started living independently.

Sadly, Tony passed away in 2011 at the age of 77, marking the end of Gloria’s second marriage.

Currently, Gloria Fox is the grandmother of five children.

Kristi, her elder daughter, has two sons, while Meghan has three sons from her previous marriage.
