Elling “Glen” Glenwood Conner

January 31, 1940 – March 8, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Glen Conner, on Friday, March 8, 2013 at the Rockyview Hospital in Calgary, Alberta. Glen was born and raised in the Red Deer area near Pine Lake. He attended Acadia University, the University of Alberta and the School of Nursing at Alberta Hospital Ponoka. Glen met Sandy Conner (Middleton) through friends and the two were later married on July 31, 1963. They settled in Ponoka where Glen worked at Alberta Hospital as a registered psychiatric nurse and later a nursing instructor. As the family grew, Glen and Sandy moved to a farm near Mecca Glenn School east of Ponoka where Glen worked hard building their home, grain farming and raising cattle in addition to working at the hospital. He loved camping and being in the outdoors, whether on the farm or in the mountains. Glen is survived by his daughter Janelle (Paul) Hastie, granddaughters Madison and Kiegan; son Brent (Andrea) Conner, granddaughters Sandra, Lauren and Viola; special cousin Corrine (Sunny) Sundberg. He was predeceased by his wife Sandy, mother Dorothy and father Elling. On Thursday, March 14, 2013 a Celebration of Glen’s Life will be held at the Ponoka Funeral Home, 5115 50th Avenue, Ponoka, Alberta at 1:00 p.m. Following the Service you are invited to join the family at the Royal Canadian Legion, 3911 Highway 2A, Ponoka at 2:30 p.m. The family would like to thank the staff at Southwood Care Center and the doctors, nurses and the palliative care team at the Rockyview General Hospital.
