It is with great sadness that the family of Glennis Margaret Glencross (nee Baillie) announces her passing on Sunday March 6, 2016, at the age of 88 years. Glennis is survived by a son John (Angeline), and a daughter Mavis, of Prince Rupert BC. She was predeceased by both or her parents, her husband Don, and her brother William Baillie.
Glennis was born in Howick, Quebec, the daughter of Leonard and Ellen Baillie. She graduated from nursing school in Montreal, Quebec, and then nursed in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, and Kirkland Lake, Ontario, before moving to Prince Rupert in 1953 to continue her nursing career. She met Donald Edward Glencross and they were married on June 4, 1954.
Glennis took great pride in her nursing career and family, she cared for all of her patients just as if they were part of her family. She devoted her life to helping others in any way that she could. She expected the best of herself, and occasionally others as well. She will be extremely missed by all who knew her and, in some way, she touched every life she came in contact with.
A gathering of family and friends was held on Saturday March 12, 2016, at the Prince Rupert Seniors’ Centre.
Glennis’s body was cremated and will be interred at a later date in the Fairview Cemetery, Prince Rupert BC.
The family would like to give a special thank you to the Doctors, Nurses, Staff and Volunteers who cared for her before and during her brief stay in the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital and the Acropolis Manor.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Prince Rupert Seniors’ Centre.
