Glenys BRINNEN

BRINNEN, Glenys. Lilian Lucas. March 13, 1916 – December 11, 2011. Glenys passed peacefully on the evening of December 11 at the age of 95. She was predeceased by her husband of 63 years, Ken, in 2004. Glenys is survived by her son Ron (Pat) of Armstrong, grandchildren Sarah (Kevin) of Maple Ridge, James of Fort St. John and great grandsons Dylan and Ryder. Glenys had a flair for life and didn’t waste a minute of her time. She thoroughly enjoyed her 18 years as secretary at Guildford Park School in Surrey. She and Ken travelled across Canada and to Alaska, Britain, Europe, New Zealand and China. Glenys was an avid reader, took night school courses, gardened, square danced and learned to tap dance, polynesian dance and swim in her 60’s. The greatest joys in her life were her grandchildren and great grandsons.

A memorial will be held in her honour at The Harrison in Elim Village, 9067 – 160 street, Surrey on May 12 at 2 pm. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society or the B.C. Children’s Hospital.
