Nancy Streeter Glenn

Friday, April 21, 2006

Nancy Streeter Glenn of Austin, Texas, spent her last days at home with her loving family and was reunited with her heavenly family in the early morning hours of April 15, 2006.

Nancy lived her life artfully. Her deep appreciation for beauty was evident in all she touched. A garden alchemist, her green thumb was more like a green heart, and plants couldn't help but flourish vividly under her tender care. Her home, too, possessed a mystic quality: peaceful, embracing and animated by the eccentric collections gathered from her many travels.

Nancy had an intrinsic curiosity for our diverse world -- when at home she was always tinkering with new ideas, places and cultures; she had a thirst for the unconventional and always reached to broaden her horizons.

She was an artist through to her bones: a quilter, a poet, a painter, a beauty maker. She lived gracefully, with laughter and a spark in her eye and in her step. Her energy was contagious and will continue to inspire all who knew her.

She took the time to smell the roses. She wrote: "I embrace my world and wish all living beings could share the joy of my life."

Her family is a blooming testament to the magic seeds she sowed. With unconditional love she nourished us, taking care to fertilize the beautiful potential in each of us. The best parts of us serve as tribute to this magnificent woman. Her spirit is tendriled around our hearts and woven into our lives -- always.

Nancy Ellen Streeter and her husband Ralph H. Glenn "Jack," who passed away in 1995, were born in Marshall in 1924 but didn't meet until after World War II. They married in 1948 and raised three children in Texas.

Nancy is survived by her children: Mike and wife Julia, daughters Cindy and Candace and husband Bruce Bradford. Her grandchildren; Jessica, Ryan, Nicole, Katy, Paula and Marjie. We were truly blessed.

We would like to thank Hospice Austin for making her comfortable during her last days at home. The understanding and dignity they supported allowed us to be part of her life until the end.

Nancy's Remembrance Walk will be a private ceremony held on her daughter's ranch. Memorials are suggested to Hospice Austin at (512) 342-4700.
