Marion J. Glenna, age 91, of Mabel, formerly of rural Lanesboro, died Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at Green Lea Senior Living in Mabel.

Marion was born January, 5, 1924 in Winneshiek County, Iowa near Burr Oak to Russell and Florence (Serfling) Bremseth. She graduated from the Harmony High School and then from Luther College in Decorah. She taught school for a few years until she was united in marriage to Richard Glenna on October 26, 1945 at the Mabel Lutheran Parsonage. They farmed in Newburg Township, Fillmore County for four years before buying a farm in Amherst Township. In 1976, they moved just down the road so Richard could continue to help their son, Toby, with the farm work. After Richard passed away in 2004, she moved to Lanesboro and resided there until moving to the Meadows of Mabel Assisted Living in 2010 and later, Green Lea Senior Living. She was a member of the Highland Lutheran Church in rural Lanesboro where she taught Sunday School for several years. She enjoyed quilting, embroidery, crocheting, listening to polkas, and dancing.

Marion is survived by a son Thoben “Toby” (Bonnie) of Lanesboro; four daughters: Susanne “Sue” Okada of Lime Springs, Iowa, Sara (Michael) Onsager of Decorah, Iowa, Sherida (Tom) Newgard of Mabel, and Sandra (Gene) Goodman of Kasson, Minn.; 14 grandchildren; 5 stepgrandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren; 11 step great-grandchildren; a brother, Neil (Joyce) Bremseth of Preston, Minn.; and two sisters-in-law: Marge Bremseth of Fountain, Minn., and Sylvia Bremseth of Idaho. She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard; her parents; four brothers: Marvin, Mervin, Leroy, and Ronald; and two sons-in-law: Arnold (Dave) Kruse and Kenneth Okada.

Funeral services were held 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at the First Lutheran Church of Highland in rural Lanesboro, Minn. with Pastor Patricia Hinkie officiating. Burial took place in the Highland Lutheran Cemetery. Visitation was one hour prior to services at the church.
