So sorry to hear about the passing of Glena (Mrs. Tripp). She was a well respected teacher who I had the privilege of having for my final years at Precious Blood. There are still several songs that she taught us that I can remember all the words and sing when I hear them. My sincere condolences during this sad time.

Dear Pat, & Glena`s family & friends,

So sorry for your loss. Glena is now in a better place as she no longer had quality of life. Vera & I visited her on May 5th & felt very sorry for her & all concerned. It had to be terrible to not be able to talk.

My sincere condolences to her family & friends. Marion (Thompson) Depuydt

Oh my I am saddened to hear of Glena's passing. She was a woman of many talents, gentle and caring, never speaking foul of anyone. I had the privilege to work with Glena as we proceeded through our teaching careers - she was a friend and companion. We shared many classroom stories and even solved the odd problem. Rest in peace, my friend - you have earned it!
To Pat, Gary, Darryl, Lianne, Kevin , Colin and all of Glena's beloved family, my sympathy and prayers.
