Condolence & Memory Journal

Glenna was to me, along with Clara, a loving Aunt-figure. A woman of principal who did not suffer my young, or adult, foolishness gladly, but always explained and taught. These women, my mother's life-long friends raised me, and whatever is good about me, they had some hand in it's instilling. As there will never be another Dot or Clara, I can say with confidence there will never, not ever, be another Glenna. I can only hope that the three of them are watching over us. I sure feel better thinking that. Love to my free spirit friend David and to Paul who introduced me to Rush. I am so sorry I wasn't there and that I am just now seeing this and reaching out. If you see this, I am at 405-642-3349.

Glenna was a force of nature and a very sharp person. Trinity was well served by her volunteer work and her friends will always be better for having had her in their lives.

With love and condolences to her sons David and Paul, and their families, and to her sister Mary and her family. Ms. Glenna McCord, Trinity University Class of 1947 will be remembered with love and admiration by her classmates and Trinity family. She will be remembered for her enthusiastic and extended service on the National Alumni Board; for graciously helping with Alumni Weekend and other projects; for the many hours spent compiling the class notes for Trinity magazine; and, for her love of learning and dedication to Trinity University. She was most deserving of her 2012 Trinity Spirit Award, bestowed by Trinity's Alumni Association. She will be missed.
