It is with great sadness that the family of Glenna Menzies, Age 76, announces her peaceful passing, May 24, 2022 in Whitehorse, Yukon, after a short battle with cancer.
She was born in Vegreville, AB March 19, 1946 to Mary and Nicholas Kozak. Glenna along with her loving, devoted spouse Art Cook, came to the Yukon in 1985 and fell in love with the area, and decided this is where they were meant to be.
Glenna's passions included caring whole heartedly for her family and others around her, planting her flowers every spring, and following the teachings of our Father with absolute grace. In fact everything she did was done with grace and with Father at the forefront. Always telling those around, when in doubt, to "Look Up!".
Glenna leaves behind cherished memories to her, spouse Art Cook, and her children, Carey Cook (Val), Denise Beaupre, James Menzies (Paula) Teena Brooks (Keith), Leanne Fortier(James) as well as many grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, and her sisters, Donna, Louise, Adeline, Debbie. Glenna was predeceased by her parents, a brother (Lorrie) and a son (Jary).
A Celebration of Life will be held on June 17, 2022 at Grace Community Church, in Whitehorse at 2pm.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation (monetary or otherwise, anything goes!) to the Wind River House of Whitehorse, Yukon.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to, Dr. Rockenstein, Dr. Biss, Dr. Kmet, and all the staff at Wind River House for making this process one that we were able to endure with understanding, acceptance and peace.
