She enjoyed quilting and was able to give each of her children and grandchildren the gift of a beautiful quilt. Glenelda loved the company of friends and valued a day spent visiting, tending to her plants, and watching the wildlife around her family home and especially the deer since moving to Manitoulin Lodge. She loved to read and enjoyed both fact and fiction and was interested in novels and newspapers alike. Her good sense of humour was enjoyed by all who were lucky enough to spend time with her.She will be dearly missed and will remain in the hearts of all who loved her.
