Glenda Elizabeth Bursey (Kennedy)

January 28, 1951 - April 8, 2024

Passed peacefully away on April 8 at the age of 73, after a long-fought battle with Parkinson’s. Mom is reunited with her precious family who have gone before her, her husband Edward (2017), son Ryan (1999), and parents Hayward and Florence.

Left with the fondest and most cherished memories, her daughter Jennifer, son-in-law Barry, treasured granddaughters Charlotte and Isla whom she lovingly referred to as ‘Nanny’s Dollies’, devoted sister Nancy and her partner Shelly, dedicated brother David and his wife Elaine, as well as her circle of cousins, brother-and sister-in laws, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Mom spent her years working and caring for those who needed her and selflessly putting others first. She was happiest when she was outdoors and even in the later stages of her illness, she managed to get out on the toboggan on a snowy day or go for a dip in the pond in the summer. She was a determined and inspirational soul with a deep sense of faith. She will be known for her cookies and cherry cakes. 

We are grateful to the staff of Admiral’s Coast and Glenbrook Lodge who helped care for mom over the past five years.

Cremation has taken place and a service will be announced at a later time. To send a message of condolence, please visit Donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
