Glenda Parrent

GlendaParrent1May 6 1942 – August 2, 2007

Glenda, originally from Manitoba, joined Abreast In A Boat in its second year. She was an active member of “Breasting the Waves”, one of the two novice boats that year. Her everpresent smile and positive personality were always a delight to her crewmates, and also to the young students who came into Glenda’s orbit during her many years as a teacher.

Glenda paddled for several years until sidelined by her recurrence but even when she could no longer paddle, she participated in as many AIAB activities as she could including social get-togethers with the alumnae group and attending the 10-year anniversary of her novice crew.

Glenda leaves behind two sons, two grandsons, a devoted daughter-in-law, and many friends from AIAB – all of whom will miss her dearly.
