Glenn Tweedy

Tribute

 

Glenn passed away at his home in Mariposa, where he was loved by his caregivers and treated with dignity and respect.  His life is Osoyoos began in 1934, brought here by his parents, Bertha and Johnstone, along with his five siblings; to join his Mom’s family the Pendergrafts.  He was very proud and patriotic, joining the Canadian Army in WWII where he met another enlistee, Iris Pembridge.  They married in 1946 and immediately homesteaded in Osoyoos never to move away.  Glenn began his adult life here as a farmer, but was an entrepreneur in the true sense of the word dealing in fence posts, Christmas trees, and orchard props; in the process hiring hundreds of locals for part-time work for over 50 years.  Glenn was renowned for his generosity of spirit.  He loved to give and share.  His passing will be an understated void in the lives of his family and many, many friends whom he treated like family. 

Glenn is survived by his wife of 66 years, Iris; his three daughters, Donna McRae, Rhonda Rohatynchuk (Ken),and Bonnie Douglas (Greg); Grandchildren Cam, Jen, Haley, Cody, Scott, Monica ,and Brent; Great-Grandchildren Carlin, Conner, Hannah, Lianne, Sydney, Olivia, John, and Harrison. Step Great-Grandchildren Kai and Ethan.  His brother Don Tweedy and wife Evelyn; their family: Mark, Faith, Aaron and their families; niece Linda Nelder, nephew Ross Tweedy and their families.  Predeceasing Glenn were his parents Bertha and Johnstone Tweedy, his siblings Ken (WWII), Roy, Joe, and Peggy; his son Bobby in 1957.  The family is very grateful for the personal and professional care given by Dr. Calder over the many years.  The family would like to thank the staff at Mariposa for all the love given to ‘Papa’, a special thank-you to Amber, Marie, Cathy, and Donna.  There will be a graveside service for family and close friends on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 11:00 am at the Osoyoos Lakeview Cemetery followed by a celebration of life at 2:00 pm at the Osoyoos Elks Hall.  No flowers by request, the family would appreciate donations to Mariposa Auxiliary c/o Lila Kallenberger, Box 683, Osoyoos BC, V0H 1V0.
