Graveside services for Georgene Ann Glenn, 89, formerly of Topeka and Tonganoxie, will be at 2 pm Thursday at Bean Cemetery in Little River, Kan. Georgene died Sunday, Feb. 28, 2021, at Rest Well Home in Oskaloosa, Kan.
She was born Dec. 11, 1931, in a farmhouse near Windom, Kan., the daughter of George and Alta Marie Smith Hunsinger. She was the oldest of eight children and attended Look Out School – a one-room school house before graduating from high school in 1950 from Little River. She worked in the Little River grocery store for several years after high school. She moved to the ‘big city’ of Topeka with sisters JoAnn & Kay and worked at Pelletier’s Department Store. Georgene married and had three girls but later divorced, and was a stay-at-home mom who also watched a few neighborhood kids. In the 1970’s she went back to work at Pelletier’s before beginning employment as a vehicle registration clerk for the Kansas Department of Revenue, and retired in 1997 after 21 years of service.
She is survived by daughters Debbie Barbery, Sheri Timm, and Jan Jones (Bill); sister Sharon Glenn (Ted); sister-in-laws Elma Hunsinger and Karen Hunsinger; eight grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Laurel, Dallis, and Karyl, sisters JoAnn, Kay, and Linda, step sister Meredith Voth, step brother Clare Hunsinger, grandson Ethan Cord Jones, and son-in-law Tom Barbery.
Memorial contributions are suggested to the Rest Well Home, 508 Union St., Oskaloosa, KS, 66066.

I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was always so sweet and kind to me. I think she babysat me a few times, and I babysat you three at times. We used to play together with Bill Bentley in his backyard. Do you remember Billy’s “Danny Raccoon“? Growing up in Oakland was a privilege with many happy memories.
We are so sorry to learn about your mother’s passing. Monterrey Village created a family for those of us who had loved ones there. Debbie, you were always there to support your mother and she loved having you with her. We wish you peace and comfort.
