Phyllis B Rond Glenn
" Together Again"

Phyllis B Glenn, age 80, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend passed away quietly at her home in American Fork on May 18. 2011. She was born in Ogden April 5, 1931 to parents Albertus "Bert" Rond, Jr., and Myrtle Alzina Burton.

She grew up in Ogden and attended schools there. She met and married Rulon Cole, later divorced. On July 24, 1951 she married Eldon Glenn in Evanston, Wyoming. They were sealed in the Logan LDS Temple April 6, 1964. He preceded her in death on July 21, 2009. Together they raised 4 sons and a daughter.

Phyllis was an exceptionally talented woman, although she never thought of herself as that. She was an outstanding cook and seamstress. No one could make cinnamon rolls or a loaf of bread like her, and many of her children and grandchildren are blessed to have one or more of her quilts. She had the ability to make everyone feel welcome in her home and it was never a bother for her to quickly put together a meal for unexpected guests.

Eldon moved in his employment to Fort Duchesne, Caldwell, Idaho Falls, Shelley, and Spokane and finally back to Utah where they retired and put down roots. Eldon would grow the garden and Phyllis would bottle the produce. Together they made a home for their family.

A lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, she served faithfully in many callings. She especially loved working in the Primary, where she spent many years teaching the young people of the Church. She loved to travel and together her and Eldon went to New Zealand and to Europe. They always talked of dancing at the "Moulin Rouge" in Paris.

In her later years, she was stricken with Rheumatoid Arthritis. This frustrated her because she was unable to continue doing the things she enjoyed throughout her life. Eldon became her devoted caregiver for the rest of his life. The past few years, she has been cared for by her daughter, Nanette Nielsen.

Phyllis is survived by her children, Randy (Helene), Mike, Eric (Karen), and Nanette; and a sister Berta Kim of Sandy, Oregon. She has 18 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband of 58 years; a son Rickey; grandsons, Darin Glenn and David Glenn; and a sister and three brothers.

Funeral services Phyllis will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2011 at 10:00 am in the American Fork 11th LDS Chapel located at 2433 West 450 South Pleasant Grove, Utah. Family and friends may call on Saturday morning from 9:00-10:00 am prior to services at the church. Interment will follow services at Leavitt’s Aultorest Memorial Park located at 836 36th Street Ogden, Utah.
