In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Glenn Mooney on March 24th, 2023, just shy of his 91st birthday.
Just 2 months after the passing of his wife Lillian, Glenn joined her in heaven. He is at peace once again being with his wife of 69 years.
Glenn will be greatly missed by his children Sandy (Jerry) and Murray(Charlene), his brother Wayne, his many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many friends.
Glenn is predeceased by his wife Lillian, his son Doug (Shirley), and brothers, Gordon and Russell.
Glenn loved his family greatly and was always offering his advice and sharing his wisdom with them. He had many stories of his past that he took great pleasure in telling. He was a very proud grandad and great-grandad and took great pride in teaching his grandsons how to work on vehicles or build something.
Glenn was always available to help anyone who needed something fixed!!!! He was self-taught and was extremely knowledgeable and could fix almost anything.
Glenn loved a gathering and wanted to celebrate every occasion with family and friends. Glenn and Lillian hosted many dinner parties in their home.
Glenn and Lillian were very involved in their church, while they were able to, and developed many wonderful friendships.
Extended family and long-time friendships were very important to Glenn. They were always reaching out to keep in touch with relatives and friends.
Glenn was born near Choiceland, Saskatchewan. It was in Choiceland that he met and married Lillian.
After trying their hand at farming, Glenn and Lillian decided to move to Prince George in 1955 where they raised their 3 children and had a successful logging truck operation.
Glenn and Lillian moved to Kelowna in 1979 where they purchased a 5-acre orchard that was a lot of work but also brought much joy, especially for their grandchildren. In 1991 they sold the orchard and retired.
Due to health reasons, they moved to Vernon in 2019 to be closer to family.
We would like to thank the staff at The Hamlets of Vernon for the love and care shown to Glenn during his time there.
Donations may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society.
A Celebration of Life will be held for both Glenn and Lillian on Tuesday, August 8th, 2023 @ 11 a.m. at Evangel Church, 3261 Gordon Drive, Kelowna.
Forever in our hearts
