Glenna was such a “sweetheart”. Always so grateful and welcoming. Mom is at a loss; her and Glenna had such a special friendship. Danielle and Greg have a lot of fond memories of their days spent with Glenna and Grandma Louise. Take care.
Sympathy and hugs to all.

Glenna was a wonderful wife and mother of four girls who always had a kind word and a big happy smile on her face. She adored her family as they adored her. She was so lucky and regularly won at Bingo, a game she so loved. Rest In Peace!
