Glenna M. Seevers passed away on Saturday (Aug, 10, 2013) after a long illness and short hospital stay requiring surgery and hospice care. Her family followed her wishes with a private viewing on Tuesday at the McClure-Schafer-Lankford Funeral Home funeral home and an immediate internment at East Lawn Memorial Park in Reno, Ohio.
She will meet in death her late husband Robert E. Seevers Sr. who died six years ago of a long fight with cancer. She was preceded in death by her parents, George and Fannie Sayger also of Newport and 11 brothers and sisters. Glenna was most proud of her stay at home mom job, her turn at coaching softball and her times working at One Hour Martinizing, The Layfayette and Christian Anchorage. When she could she enjoyed volunteering for the Democrats even if it meant holding a sign up and yelling for you to honk your horn! One of her favorite memories is not only meeting but speaking to President Clinton.
She is survived by two of her children who love her beyond words. Son, Robert E. Seevers Jr. (Elizabeth) of Belpre and daughter, Brenda R. Seevers (Laura) of Pittsburgh also her loving grandson, Shawn R. Seevers (Courtney). She is also survived by her sister, Bonnie Stevens (Frank) of Fly, and numbers can't count the amount of nieces and nephews both real and in the spirit of love who considered this woman their "Aunt Nannie". Remembering that same spirit think of her with her hand on her hip saying "I don't want ANYONE to see me when I'm dead. I just don't want it." In that spirit of love and understanding we thank you for your respect of her wishes at this time.
