Virginia Lea Glamann (Wohlgemuth), age 88, passed away peacefully March 21st, 2020 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s/Dementia.

Virginia was born to William and Irene (Peak) Wohlgemuth on September 23rd, 1931 in Lancaster, KS. She grew up on the farm with her 5 siblings and graduated from Atchison County Community High School in May of 1949. Virginia married her high school sweetheart and love of her life, John William (Bill) Glamann, on June 18th, 1950. They had 5 children, Richard, Dan, Deb, Trent, and Dawn. Virginia worked at the Farm Bureau and then after the family moved to Kansas City, she worked for Consolidated Freightways for 30 years retiring in 1995. Virginia loved her family and friends deeply and welcomed anyone into her home and heart. She was a great cook and would whip up a meal in a hurry if she had any indication you were hungry and sometimes even if you weren’t. She always had treats for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her famous Ritz/peanut butter dipped in chocolate, ice-pops, pudding pies, French toast, gooey butter cake, and more. Virginia was a long- time member of Children’s Memorial Lutheran Church and later at St. James Lutheran Church and Hosanna! Lutheran Church.

Momma Tookie was a jewel, always smiling, always loving to everyone she took under her wing. She was a mother to so many of us in the choir group of Children’s Memorial Lutheran in the 70’s. She could cook , but her desserts were something to write home about! I especially loved her fruit cocktail cakes and gooey butter cakes whenever there was a potluck at church or hanging out at her house with the family. We all felt we were part of that family and loved. Both Ben and I send our condolences to all the Glamann’s and extended family and friends.
