Glenna Sainsbury

January 2, 1941 — August 24, 2023



Glenna Elaine Sainsbury, 82 of Cheyenne Wyoming passed away August 24th 2023 at Davis Hospice after a long Illness.

Glenna was born January 2, 1941 in Pocatello Idaho. She was an Executive Secretary for several companies in Utah, Chicago, Ill., Detroit, MI, and in Manhattan New York, New York. She retired from CBS in 2001 and moved to Cheyenne with her husband of 64 years; Jan Sainsbury. They were on the first flight out of NYC after 9/11/2001.

Glenna loved many aspects of Cheyenne, especially Holiday Park where she walked daily. She formed lasting friendships with the Park Pals, and their pups. Given the excellent culinary skills she'd gained from different chefs throughout the country, she was thrilled to join a gourmet cooking club that met monthly and so loved the food. The GIRL FRIEND'S CLUB was her most special activity and she will be missed terribly by its members.

Having lived and worked in major cities, she and Jan rented apartments and followed suit for 8 years in Cheyenne. They bought their first home and the joys of gardening opened a new world of creativity and pleasure for Glenna, and those who joined her on her patio for a glass.

Glenna was loved by all who knew her. She loved her family and friends and will be missed by all.

Glenna is survived by her daughter Kelly DiBIasi, grandson Joey DiBlasi and two great grandchildren Corbyn and Bella, along with 4 sisters and one brother, and her dear Corgi, Stubby.

She is preceded in death by her parents, one brother, one sister, and her husband Jan. She was also preceded in death by her son Sean.

Cremation is under the care of Schrader, Aragon and Jacoby Funeral home, Cheyenne WY.
