Glenna and her husband Doug raised Glenna's sister Paula as one of their own after the sisters lost their mother. Glenna had a special, nurturing bond with nature and living things. She loved caring for her hummingbirds, horseback riding, camping and gardening. Glenna had a natural, creative talent that she used making crafts to share with those she loved. She was an amazing cook and everyone fought over her delicious, quarter-size pancakes. Closest to Glenna’s heart was her wonderful family and those times spent together were her favorite memories.
