Will miss my Auntie Glennys so much. She was such a special lady and will forever live on by her cheerful memories on the farm.
Aunt Glennys, the wife of Richard (Dick) is the youngest son and brother to my father who is the eldest son to my Granma & Granpa Weatherston. An era ends. Both Dick & Glennys were caretakers of the original Weatherston homestead where many incredible memories were forged in a time that no longer exists. Like jumping from the hayloft to the mushroom mound of hay in the barnyard, missing was not an option. Family picnics in the empty field by the laneway & the proverbial baseball games; frogs in the stream, collecting duck eggs in the spring, knowing Uncle Dick must be magic cause he could touch the electric fence without being electrocuted – city kids wore leather shoes, being allowed to play with the budgies or new sheltie puppies, the smell of the old wood kitchen stove and the wonderful cookies we got if we were good, and haying where I learned the more on the hay wagon the better it was . . . being “allowed” to steal a beer from under that one bale of hay at the back of the loft
Aunt Glennys was special to me as she was welcoming at the Weatherston farm. She will forever be part of my memories.
Glennys:I am sorry to here of your passing ,you will be sadly missed Rockton fair is going to notice that your wonderful arrangements are not there.
Sorry to hear of Glennys’ passing. Don and I are away for the month of October. I have many memories of time spent at my grandparents and then Uncle Dick and Glennys’ place. As a teenager I remember being a part of their wedding party, picking fresh corn, enjoying their puppies and the many hours spent playing cribbage in the kitchen.
It was a privilege and a blessing to know Glennys for even a short time. To share a meal with her here at Amica was something almost all of us residents looked forward to. Her good humour and compassionate understanding made her loved by all. She has left a great void in our lives, and will be greatly missed by so many of us. Rest in eternal please, Glennys!
Bill and I will remember our chats with them at the kitchen table. She was such a lovely lady.
Great times at the corn roasts too.
