HOLDEN, Glee Lorraine

April 16, 1945 – Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan

June 7, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

Glee beloved wife of Jim Holden of Calgary, AB, passed away on June 7, 2014 at the age of 69 years.

Glee was born and raised in Moose Jaw, SK where she attended secretarial college. Glee moved to Calgary where she met Jim and they were married on May 15, 1981 and spent 33 love filled years together.  Glee loved to volunteer for minor hockey, and was a member of the CWL at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church. She also helped coordinate the Mayor’s Environment Expo when she worked for the City of Calgary. Glee loved dogs, especially Brittany Spaniels, and to cook for her family. Her biggest passion in life was being a wife, mother and grandmother, and giving the best hugs ever. She will be missed dearly by all those that knew her.

Besides her loving husband, Glee is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Cory and Silke Holden; daughter-in-law, Kim MacKinnon ; grandchildren Ben, Mia, Madison; sister and brother-in-law, Donna and Garry Steel; nieces and nephew, Richard, Shelley (Jason Cornford) and Robin; and her great niece, Chancey Steel, (Matthias Jobs and their son Dominic Steel-Jobs), and great nephew Devin Cote.

    Dear Jim and Family
    I was so sorry to hear you have lost your precious Glee. I regret that I hadn’t been in touch the last while and haven’t seen you. But I smile when I remember all the fun times taking photos at the hockey events and banquets, Glee giving Rob a hard time when he tried to tell her how to present a trophy or where to stand. She was such a dedicated minor hockey Mom and supporter and a volunteer all those years for Calgary Minor Hockey and AA Council. You have so many happy memories to help you through this difficult time. I’ll miss her.
    Sincerely, Gayle Askew

    Jimmy,

    We are very sorry to hear of Glee’s passing. She was a shining light who always encompassed everything that is great about the volunteerism she embraced. Her years of service to the Minor Hockey Association of Calgary went well above and beyond anything anyone could expect from a volunteer; as it was her love of the game, her love of the kids and her love for you that kept her coming back to volunteer year after year. Her classiness, her laugh, her good heart will sorely be missed by all who were fortunate enough to serve beside her.

    Condolences to you and your family,

    Kirk & Jo-Anne Reynolds

    Hi Jim & Family,

    I was very sorry to hear about Glee’s passing away. She was one of the first ladies I met when I joined The City of Calgary and she was very good to me and trained me. I will always remember her for that and for guiding me when I asked her about things as I was new to Canada. She was a wonderful person and I will always remember her with fond memories.

    Regards,

    Mumtaz

    Please accept my deepest sympathy with your great loss of Glee. I have never met anyone whose name is more appropriate. I remember with great affection meeting you both on your German Honeymoon, with the Royal Midgets. But even more than that, reconnecting with Glee and you, in your ministry with Sr. Justine. sincerely Myrna Quinn

    We are so sorry to hear of Glee’s passing. I still remember when we first moved into the neighborhood 25 years ago, how you helped us celebrate Bill’s 40th birthday and made us feel so welcome.
