Glenna had been a cook at Waunee Farms for 33 years. She recently had been baptized at the First Baptist Church in Galva. She loved cooking and she enjoyed doing woodworking and making cut-outs, doing yard work and fishing. She was especially proud of her family and enjoyed having them around. Her home was welcome to anyone and she never knew a stranger. She will be deeply missed by those lives she touched.
