Glen Johnstone passed away on Friday, April 12, 2019 and the Memorial Mass was held on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Mora with Glen’s grandson, Fr. Thomas Grafsgaard presiding.
Glen’s wife Jean and the entire family would like to extend appreciation to all who offered support in recent months including the staff and volunteers at St. Croix Hospice and the staff of FirstLight Health System. A special thanks to Rita Claseman, parish life coordinator for her home visits and support, and to the Knights of Columbus Council 5078. A sincere thank you is offered to the American Legion Honor Guard for involvement in the funeral and burial ceremonies. The Memorial Mass was made beautiful and meaningful by the music provided by Kris Paulson, liturgy coordinator, Jean Mork and the St. Mary’s Choir. Thank you to the members of the funeral committee who prepared and served a delicious lunch, and to Gene Stifter who assisted Fr. Grafsgaard at the funeral Mass.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Mike Ingebrand and staff for the exceptional support and care.
We appreciate those who sent cards, memorials, floral arrangements and provided food for the family. The kind gestures from the community have been overwhelming, and the support means so much to all of us.
The family of Glen V. Johnstone
