George Glendenning

June 5, 1933 — February 4, 2022

Stillman Valley, IL

George J Glendenning went to meet his Savior on February 4, 2022, in Sun City AZ. He
was born on June 5, 1933 to George Bruce and Alfhild (Clover) Anderson Glendenning in
Rockford, Illinois. He grew up just south of Stillman Valley, IL and graduated from
Stillman Valley High School in 1952. During that time, he met the love of his life Donna
(Fowler) Glendenning, and they were married in October of 1953 and raised four sons.
George loved the Lord and lived a life of service to his family and his community.
He was drafted into the Army in June of 1953 and served at San Luis Obispo, Camp
Atterbury, Fort Carson, and Beal AFB. He was proud of His country and served faithfully.
After his time in the Army, George moved back to Stillman where he continued to farm
and raise his family. He loved the farm life and raised his sons with a strong work ethic.
He further gave to his community by serving on the Ogle County Fair board, serving on
the steering committee of the Ogle County Hospice Serenity House and helping with
bowling fundraisers for veterans. George served the Lord in various leadership capacities
in his local congregation. He was always available to help out with mowing, running for parts

and filling in where ever he could; he continued to be physically active in recent years by
becoming an avid bowler. George and Donna have wintered in Peoria, AZ for nearly 30
years, where George enjoyed hiking, biking, bowling, horseshoes and sunshine.
