Glenna was always so generous. She would call me and all that she would say I have warm banana bread for you! Or peanut butter balls.
I would always go right over and we could have a chat. She was wonderful!

So sorry for your loss. Many great memories of us as kids at the lake spending ‘quality’ time together. Such a sweet lady. Prayers for you all and God bless you.

I meet Glenna when I was about eleven years old. She was the
young one in the quilting group. She had great energy for keeping everything clean and organized. She was a faithful servant. She
was always at church on Wednesday night.
Fred senior would arrive later ; and always greet her with a kiss.
Which at eleven, I thought was really romantic.
