GLENN GEORGE CONLEY
August 25, 1946 September 21, 2020
Glenn was predeceased by his parents, George and Emma Conley. He leaves to mourn and will be sadly missed by his cousins, goddaughter, and close friends whom he loved dearly.
Glenn grew up on Stella Avenue in Winnipeg. He attended King Edward School, Sisler High School, and graduated from the University of Winnipeg, as well as the University of Manitoba.
In his early years, Glenn's love for photography led him to work at the Winnipeg Children's Hospital and at the International Grains Commission. He then went on to pursue his career as a geologist for the Province of Manitoba.
Glenn loved celebrating holidays with family. He really enjoyed cooking and woodworking. Camping in the mountains, watching movies, reading, working on his computer, listening to music and visiting Fort Whyte Alive Sanctuary, brought him peace and enjoyment.
The family would like to thank Dr. John Mayba, CancerCare Manitoba and home care staff for their support, amazing kindness and compassion shown to Glenn.
What a Wonderful World!
"May God grant you always,
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you,
Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful family and friends near you,
And whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you."
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba or to a charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
So Sorry to hear of Glenn's passing. I was a co-editor of the Univ. of Wpg. yearbook and Glenn was one of the photographers that we counted on for some great shots. He never disappointed. Rest well. - Posted by: Ken Sargeant (friend from univ of Wpg.) on: Oct 14, 2020
We were greatly sorry to hear of the passing of Glen. Don, my husband was a cousin of Glen's Mother, Emma. Glen's Grandmother, Mary was my husband's sister. We have many wonderful memories of Glen and his family. Emma had a bridal shower for us in her home on Stella. We helped Glen with his move to Bonnycastle Court and he assisted when we moved to Seabrook Cove in Southdale, around the same time. Many dinners were spent with Glen, whether at Glen's home, or our home, or out at a restaurant, We enjoyed our conversations, as Glen was intelligent and well read. We also enjoyed hearing about the projects that he had on his list, one being the big furniture that he was going to build. We will miss you Glen. We were sorry that we couldn't attend his graveside service. - Posted by: Karen and Don Gundrum (cousin) on: Oct 03, 2020
Please accept my very sincere condolences on Glenn's passing. He was literally larger than life (as I am 5'1.5"). His presence and humour was sincerely appreciated. His degree of professionalism was unstoppable! Glenn (AKA: Grumpy): May you rest in peace knowing that your complete dedication to your friends are well n' truly appreciated. I wish you loads of pickeral, wine as well as the other finer culinary delights. I sincerely hope that you finally made your own large furniture (as per your retirement plan). Enjoy the ride my friend as you will be missed. Very sincerely, Bonnie Lenton - Posted by: Bonnie Lenton (Friend/former co-worker) on: Sep 27, 2020
My sincere condolences on your loss. I pray that memories of happier times will see you through your time of grief! "God gave us memory so we might enjoy roses in winter." Glenn and I worked together at Children's Hospital and Health Sciences Centre. I always knew him to be competent, conscientious and affable, and he will be missed. - Posted by: Bob Strong (Friend) on: Sep 26, 2020
