Glenna (Gleason) Bealka
Glenna passed away peacefully in hospice on February 14, 2021, two weeks before her 90th birthday.
She was preceded in death by parents Thomas and Maude Gleason; brothers Tom and Jack Gleason; brother-in-law Bob Bealka, sisters-in-law Marie Gleason and Audrey Bealka and great grandson Luke Bealka.
She is survived by Neil, her beloved husband of 67 years; daughter Coleen (Steve) Ebner; sons Neil Jr. (Deb), Steve (Kit), Jim (Barby) and Dave (Anne) Bealka; brothers-in-law Dennis Bealka and Dean Roper; sisters-in law Joan Gleason, Janet Schaapveld, Kathy Bealka and Kathy Roper; grandchildren Dave, Stephanie, Neil III, Peter, Matt, Dan, John, Alexander, Aaron, Katie and Meg; great grandchildren Lillian, Cecilia, Bennett, Aiden, Jace, Henry and Marian and many nieces and nephews.
Glenna had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease for a number of years, but she will always be remembered for her smile, devotion to family and friends, deep interest in living and learning more about her Catholic faith and her tireless volunteerism through the Church of St. Michael and beyond. The BeFriender Ministry was especially close to her heart, allowing her to bring comfort and Holy Communion to Lakeview Hospital patients and the residents of Stillwater Good Samaritan.
Memorials preferred to BeFrienders at St. Michael’s Catholic Church or Valley Outreach in Stillwater, or the charity of your choice.
A private Memorial Family Gathering will be held July 23 at Bradshaw Celebration of Life Center in Stillwater.
