Genesta Victoria Glenn
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing,
at her home in Heatherton, of Genesta “Net” Glenn, a loving
Mother, Nanny, Sister, and Aunt on Saturday, July 7,2018, at the age
of 86 years.
Born in Little Dover, Nova Scotia she was the daughter of the
late Alex and Lillian Rhynold.
years, she operated her own hairdressing salon, worked at her
niece’s bakery, and provided childcare to many families.
Her pastimes included baking, tending her garden, visiting,
and spending time with her cherished grandchildren. Although
she never had a driver’s license, she never had any
difficulty getting where she wanted to go as long as “you
didn’t drive too fast”. Nothing pleased her
more than being treated to a good “scoff” at one of her
favourite restaurants. She looked forward each year to her
visit back to her birthplace, Little Dover, on her birthday to spend
time with her brother and other family members. Our
“Net” touched the hearts of everyone she met with her quick
wit and her tendency to always speak her mind.
She is survived by her daughter, Cindy (Bob) Boutilier,
Antigonish; her grandchildren, Bryden, Toronto; Allyson and Kristyn,
both of Antigonish; her sisters, Rita Rhynold, Antigonish, Margie
Bray, Bedford; brother, Jim (Pearlie) Rhynold, Little Dover; special
