Glenna Anne Rolison Nassar peacefully went home to God on Thursday, May 2, 2013 at her home, surrounded by her loving family. She lived 80 wonderful years.
Glenna was born on March 14, 1933 in Monesson, Pa. to loving parents, the late Samuel Edward Rolison and Hallie Frances Thomas Rolison.
Glenna adored her family and all who knew her remarked about the beautiful aura of love and kindness that enveloped anyone who entered her life. She created a loving home for her adored seven children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends and loved filling her home with the smell of fresh baked pies, breads and sweets.
She was a spectacular cook, forged long and deep friendships with her bridge group, and during the spring and summer, you could find her planting flowers of all varieties in her prized garden. Glenna adored her family and was a beloved friend to many. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was cherished as well by her black lab, Rocky, who could be found at any time, day or night, sitting lovingly by her feet.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by beloved siblings, Charles Rolison, Howard Rolison, June Rolison and Hallie Robertson. She often exclaimed that "God must really love me because he gave me seven beautiful children and a wonderful life".
