Glenna Lee Thornhill

April 26, 1955 – November 28, 2022
Glenna, a long-time resident of the Comox Valley, passed away in total peace at her home on Monday, November 28, 2022, surrounded by her family. Glenna was born April 26,1955 in North Bay, Ontario and spent her formative years working as a pipeline surveyor, while saving for her first home, a small farm. There she learnt the skills to live largely off the land raising poultry birds and hosting a large garden. Heath concerns with one of her children prompted a move to the valley and she instantly fell in love with the ocean, rivers and mountains across Vancouver Island.
Glenna was an incredibly strong woman and an even better Mother to her sons Mathew (Dawn), Benjamin and Brandon (Ariel). Her love for her brother Howard was also immeasurable.
Her loving nature led to many strong bonds in the valley particularly in the AA community. There she boasted over 15 years of sobriety and was going strong to her last day. Throughout her time in the program she sponsored several people and helped them in their journey to stay sober and took great pride in helping others.
In her twilight she LOVED spending time with grandkids Jared, Samara and Max. Her house could be found with the pictures and items the kids had crafted for her over the years.
She will forever be remembered for her strength, compassion, gritty determination, kindness, love for family and friends and in the end, most of all her grace.
