    Glenna was a West Nashville Presbyterian friend. Our children grew up together. She taught Lesa how to swim!! And was the “ watch dog” over our teen boys at church functions😊😊!! All sweet memories. We will see her again in Heaven!!

    Glenna has been a cherished friend for more than 20 years. I will miss her smile and her wonderful sense of humor, not to mention the way she took me into the family as though I’d always been a part of it.

    The wonderful memories we cherish of Glenna and her family while attending West Nashville Presbyterian Church have never been forgotten. You could always count on Glenna to have that big smile, uplifting personality, and humorous way. She was a joy to see each Sunday or anytime out in public. Glenna was a stalwart member of her church, her community and Charlotte Park School where her children attended. She was a special woman who influenced many with her Christian virtues and will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Our heartfelt prayers to the family and thank you for sharing your mom each Sunday and on other church occasions with us all. Our love to the family.

    Cathy and Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was a lovely lady and I so enjoyed seeing her whenever I visited St. Paul’s.
    She always had a smile on her face. Because of the virus, I am staying close to home and will not see you tonight.
    Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless you all.
