Evalene Glenn, 92, formerly of Libby, died on March 13, 2009 at her home in Billings.
She was born on June 30, 1916 at Nysaa, Ore., to Mary and Jack Pitser. She attended grade school and high school at Ontario, Ore.
She married Woodrow “Bill” Glenn on Oct. 12, 1935. They had been married 68 years at the time of his death. Her husband worked for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which started a somewhat nomadic life for many years. During all their travels and many homes, Mrs. Glenn still carried her first set of dishes with her.
The couple loved to fish and camp. She was often the “winner” of the catch of the day. They moved to Libby in 1965 and fell in love with the people and the country. She was known as a good cook and homemaker, raised beautiful begonias and stunning roses, and loved all crafts, painting and playing cards with her many friends. She also enjoyed camping and boating with her children and grandchildren and picking huckleberries for pies and jam.
After her husband’s death in 2003, she moved to Billings, and lived at Tendernest Assisted Living for the past five years.
She was preceded in death by her husband and sons, Lyle and Wayne.
Survivors include daughter June (Leon) Mennie of Billings; son Frank Glenn and Marcia Stegman of Spokane; numerous grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.
Services were scheduled for Tuesday, March 17 at 11 a.m. at the City of Libby Cemetery.
Schnackenberg & Nelson Funeral Home in Libby handled arrangements.
