Douglas, Glenna Louise (nee Leigh)

Passed away on Friday, October 22, 2021, at Hospice Wellington at the age of 92 years. Loving wife of the late John (2009). Proud mother of Michael Douglas (Cindy), David Douglas (Mia Collis), Cynthia Fobert (David Joshua) and Susan Dempsey (Rob).

She is predeceased by her brother Clayton Leigh (Jane) and her sister Audrey Scott (Doug). Glenna will also be fondly remembered by nieces, nephews and the many friends she acquired through the Evergreen Senior Centre and the congregation at Trinity United Church. Glenna graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism from Western University in 1950 and at various times worked as a teacher, librarian and office manager.
