GLENN – Ann (Egnatoff)

August 11, 1916 – October 26, 2009

Ann Glenn passed away peacefully on October 26th – Freed at last from the debilitating pain of arthritis.

Ann is survived by her daughter Pat, son George, son-in-law John, daughter-in-law Connie, granddaughter Heidi, great granddaughter Emily, brother Michael, sister-in-law Mildred, nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, great great nieces and nephews and many many friends.

She met people, made friends and kept friends for life, from Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg and finally Calgary. She met people in the neighbourhood, through work, at church and through sports.

When she and her husband, Mel, moved to Calgary they quickly became involved with St. David’s United Church as active members of the congregation and its activities. As always, tennis drew them into the community and they enjoyed years of tennis and curling at the Calgary Winter Club. As a mixed doubles duo, they were successful winners in many tournaments in the prairie provinces and continued their winning ways in the Alberta Senior Games. Ann also worked for Continuing Education at the University of Calgary – another source of making great friends.

Ann was predeceased by her husband Mel (1995), her father and mother George and Catherine Egnatoff, brothers Paul, Peter, John and sisters Annie, Katherine, Mary and Nettie.

Arthritis is a terrible disease for all affected. We would like to thank all those that helped Ann cope with the results of this disease and Dr. Leggett and the staff of units 71 and 73 at the Rockyview Hospital for their care and compassion during her last stay in the hospital.

A time of Remembering Ann will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.) on , Saturday October 31, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Arthritis Society or to a charity of the donors choice.

In living memory of Ann Glenn, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Crowfoot Chapel, 82 Crowfoot Circle N.W. Telephone (403) 241-0044.

  1. Jeanine and Earle McVicar :

    We would like to express our deepest sympathy to Pat and John and George and all the family in the passing of their matriarch–Ann Glenn. She was a gem of a woman in so many ways and as such attracted many friends. Her love of family was paramount in her life–she never failed to talk about them during our meetings for birthday lunches with mutual friends. Her love of tennis was our original link–but–the friendship continued from there to be close and fuelled by discussions relating to family, politics, current events etc. Her quick mind and wit was admired by all who knew her. She always thought of others before herself–generous and kind she was. May it be comforting to know that she will be missed by her many friends. Her suffering is over–she is now at peace. May God fill your hearts with the love she had for you and pleasant memories of times spent together over the years.

    Sincerely,

    Jeanine and Earle McVicar
    Calgary Winter Club members

  2. Al and I would like to express our sympathy to Pat and George and all the family. My connection to Ann went back many years to Regina when we played tennis at the same Tennis Club. We connected again at the Winter Club many years later. Ann was a wonderful warm person and I enjoyed the many chats we had when our paths crossed. Her quiet nature and good sense of humour endeared her to many people. I hope it is comforting to think of her and Mel being together again and that she is not suffering still. Sincerely Joyce and Al Bailey

    Ann was a remarkable lady. As a member of St. David’s U.C. Graduates, she contributed greatly, and if she was unable to physically take part was more than willing to do phoning for us. I regarded her as a friend, and am so sorry to miss her service, but I will be attending Iris Garner’s memorial at that time. Ann will be dearly missed, but will at last be free of her pain.
