Obituary for Zelma Belle Glenn (Gann)

Zelma Belle Glenn, age 87, of Springfield, entered her heavenly home on August 26, 2018. She was born July 28, 1931, the youngest child of Walter and Gracie Gann. Zelma married her sweetheart, Bill Glenn on May 27, 1950. She was a protective mother and exceptional "Grailor" to all her grandchildren. We have many memories to cherish--her enthusiasm for the holidays, her fondness for flowers and her compassion for God's creatures. Zelma was a woman of strong faith and a natural encourager. In early years, she attended Ridgecrest Baptist Church.

Survivors include her husband, Bill of 68 years. She also leaves behind two children and their spouses, Linda and Courtney Parker of Nixa, and Christopher and Cynthia Glenn of Springfield. Grandchildren include Kristen Parker of Virginia, Brooke (Luke) Shaw of Springfield, Ashley Glenn of California, Taylor Glenn, Jordan Glenn and Joshua Glenn, all of Springfield. Great-grandchildren include Henry, Penelope, and Samuel Shaw, Kaden and Zoey Glenn, all of Springfield. Zelma will be missed by other extended family and friends.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to Springfield Rehab and Health Care Center. Keep doing what you do so well. You've become family. We are also very appreciative to the Seasons Hospice Staff. You are gifted individuals.

Thank you, mom, for the lessons and values you imprinted on our lives. Meet us at The Gate.

Visitation will be Thursday, August 30, 2018, 9:00-10:00am, at Greenlawn Funeral Home North. Graveside services will follow at 10:00am in Greenlawn Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to C.A.R.E. Animal Shelter, 1328-B West Sunshine, Springfield, MO 65807.
