Sending my deepest condolences to you all. I remember the first time I met Glenna. The spring of 1988. I was newly married, just moved to Conn and I was getting familiar with the town. First stop, the Conn post office. A lady was there to greet me with the biggest smile, the warmest, welcoming nature and a lasting friendship began. Throughout the years of living in Conn, you could always depend on Glenna to lend a hand if needed, listen to my stories and offer gentle advice. The good old days of raising my kids in the little hamlet of Conn. Thinking of you all in this difficult time.— Trina Larter, December 19, 2022
I met Glenna when the girls got together summer evenings at McLennan apartments…..we would figure out the worlds problems and then make plans to go for dinner someplace.

Glenna was a real good second mother to my children. We will never forget the good times we had together.
Our Sincere sympathy on the death of your loved one. She enjoyed the Euchres at St. Mary's even when she had to use an assistive device to get from one table to the other. She was a sharp Euchre player and at all times had that happy smile. She so loved her family and lit up when asked of them. May her Soul Rest In Peace and may all of you treasure your happy memories. Sincerely, Bob and Mary McIntee— Bob and Mary McIntee, December 19, 2022
