Glenna Jean (Culverhouse) Cline was born July 13, 1929 in Pampa, Texas. She passed away September 30, 2019, surrounded by family and friends. She has lived in the Tri City area since 1942 and also lived for many years near Newport, Washington, with many friends remaining in both places. She met her husband Roy Cline on a blind date, and they were married on November 27, 1947. They had four daughters and felt the need to share their wonderful hearts and love even more by adopting a brother and sister. Among the many people through the years that loved her like a mom are daughters of the heart, Marilyn Jones and Finis Marie DeSoto.
Glenna is survived by her sister Barbara Snider (Jim) and brother Terry Culverhouse; daughters Cathy Hinze (Steve), Lori Flannery (Mike), Glenda Zylinski (Paul), and son Anthony Cline; grandchildren Dana Kelly, Douglas Greer, Camelot Stamey, Karrie Allessio, Jamie Davies, Kody Flannery, Kacey Flannery, Bailey Flannery, Charissa Merkt, Kyra Merkt, Anthony Cline, Zachary Crowner, Nathan Zylinski, and Maryann Terry; great grandchildren Torey Healea, Syerra Stamey, Jessica Greer, Douglas Greer, Dillon Stamey, Zoe Crowner, Samantha Davies, Mya Davies, Kanon Flannery, Kasch Flannery, Noah Zylinski, Emma Zylinski, Ellie Zylinski, Jacob Terry, and Alyssa Terry; great great grandchildren Christian Williams, Logan Healea, Wyatt Healea, Cabrey Stamey, and Scarlette Stamey.
Glenna was an active member of Order of Eastern Star for 63 years and held many oﬃces as well as special appointments. She loved talking about how smart she believed her kids and grandkids to be, and she loved all children. Above all else, she cherished her family and all the wonderful friends she made throughout her life.
Her wish is that everyone holds fast to their faith and celebrates life. She did not want those she loved to “hug their sorrow through the years”, but instead “smile and ﬁll the hours in useful ways”. She spent hours each day doing needlework projects to donate to patients at the Shrine Hospitals for Children and other worthy causes.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to Order of Eastern Star Heart charities.
Although I didn’t know Miss Glenna, she must have been a wonderful person to raise an awesome daughter like Lori. My prayers are with the family as they navigate through this sorrowful time.
I grew to love Glenna Cline as a second mom once I met her daughter Lori in the 7th grade. I thank her family for so many wonderful memories, including camping trips, dinners, anniversaries, birthdays, babysitting their kids while they went square dancing or to Eastern Star, and just getting to hang out with them at reunions and so many other wonderful times throughout the years. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your family. I will miss you! Please give my mom a big hug and kiss for me when you see her in heaven!
Glenna was a wonderful women, was so lucky to have had her in my life. Glenna please give Roy, Karen, Peggy and my Mom and Dad a big Kiss and hug up in heaven when you get there, 🙏😘sure hope God has seeds in the watermelon up there for you 🍉In our heart ♥️ forever John & Jenett
My grandmother was one of the most loving people ever known. She loved unconditionally and she told it to you straight. She will greatly missed. I only hope I could be close to the person she was.
Lori I am sorry to hear about your mom. You and your family are in my thought and prayers.
