Glenna M. Rhodes, age 84, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home, after a long battle with cancer, on Friday, May 26, 2017.
Born in Whitetop, Virginia, on June 3, 1932, Glenna was the daughter of the late Robert and Annie (Hurley) Miller. She took pride in taking care of her house and yard. Glenna loved her family and shared her faith and stories with all of them and she adored her dog Sadie; she will be missed by all. Glenna was a longtime member of the Glasgow Baptist Church in Newark.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Banner W. Rhodes, who died in 1996; and her brother Raymond Miller. Glenna is survived by her daughters, Linda S. Belcher and husband John; Patsy A. Howaniec and husband Mike, all of Newark; grandchildren who called her “Mom-Mom,” Christopher J. Belcher of Wilmington, Gregory B. Belcher and wife, Carla of Middletown, Todd M. Howaniec and wife, Jennifer of Newark and Troy J. Howaniec and wife, Heather of Newark; and great grandchildren who called her “Big Mom,” Eric and Emma Belcher and Todd, Jr., Jackson, Ella, and Dylan Howaniec.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff, nurses, and doctors at the Helen Graham Cancer Center and to Delaware Hospice.
Services and interment will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in Glenna’s memory to Glasgow Baptist Church, 3021 Old County Rd., Newark, DE 19702.
