Helen E. Glenn, 95, of Salida, died Saturday April 14, 2018 at Columbine Manor Care Center in Salida.
She was born January 7, 1923 in Scott City, Kansas to Samuel Frederick and Myrtle E. Cole.
Mrs. Glenn was united in marriage to Charles C. Glenn on February 17, 1952 in Raton, New Mexico.
She was from a pioneer family and was raised in farm country from Kansas to the Western slope of Colorado. She lived through the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl days in Kansas and Eastern Colorado, working on the farms and in the fields along side her siblings. When meal time came during the harvest she would cook the meals with her mother for the “threshing” crews. After settling in Salida in 1952, her entire life was centered around her family. Her greatest joy was being with her family.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Charles C. Glenn, siblings Albert Cole, Ben Cole, Carl Cole, Ray Cole, Leona Jenks, Delores Munson and Shirley Sullivan.
