Glenna Robinson of Fredericton NB passed away on December 18, 2020. Glenna is survived by her brother Doug (Lynette) Hanson; son Randy (Julie); daughters Linda & Lisa (Trevor); and grandsons Christopher & Tanner. She was predeceased by her husband Gordon, her parents Lee and Addie (Williams) Hanson and brothers Harold, Aubrey, Kenneth, and Karl.
Born in 1934 in Fredericton’s Rabbit Town neighbourhood she excelled in academic achievement. Most years she was at the top of her class. Glenna married in 1953 and went on to become a devoted wife to Gordon for over 51 years. She was a loving and supportive mother and grandmother, most particularly to her grandsons who she loved with her whole heart encouraging them in every way she could. Love of others was her hallmark.
She always attempted to meet a need wherever she found it. She believed Love never fails. Glenna was a loyal friend and trusted and valued employee. She followed her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ whether recording radio programs at CJRI or preparing devotionals with the many groups she was involved with. Recently Glenna established a reading program to her fellow residents at Nashwaak Villa.
Glenna attended George Street United Baptist Church and then Grace memorial Baptist Church for over 80 years. Mom as she was affectionately called truly loved people and loved showing that love. She was a Sunday School Teacher, Mission Band Leader, charter member of Ferne School WMS, president of Christian Women’s Club and a Deacon. Her favorite activities were greeting people after Sunday morning service in the Welcome Centre over coffee and attending Tuesday night Bible Study.
The family wishes to express its deep appreciation to the staff of Nashwaak Villa for the compassion. Love and care that they gave to Mom these last 4 years. We could not have asked or wished for any better care. Your graciousness and love will always be remembered.
