Rhonda Glenn Â (nee: London) Â
a 1985 was an employee of Crossroads Christian Communications Inc. show 100 Huntley Street, wife of St. Georges minister Ray David Glenn, and filled in as a guest on the former show she co-hosted (corrects from hosted – BD) during the difficulties Crossroads faced last summer.
She talked excitedly and passionately about her dreams of graduating from Osgoode hall this year, her son and her future with her husband and as a lawyer.
Rhonda Glenn went to hospital with a migraine a few weeks ago. She was sent home. She returned and was sent home again. Â Finally doctors did a scan and discovered a gliablastomo in the mid-line of her brain. Â She was admitted for care April 19th. A few days later her doctors announced they were unable to operate, and they diagnosedÂ it as state 2.
She was in pain, having seizures, and Hamilton doctors sent her home for comfort before beginning radiation this week.
She was returned to ICU with extensive brain swelling after her first treatment.
Rhona Â Glenn died yesterday afternoon. The funeral arrangements are on her husbands church site – St. Georges – a Â breakaway church in the Anglican Network in Canada, based in Burlington Ontario. Rhonda Glenn’s funeral will be held at Queensway Cathedral in Toronto.
Hundreds of people have followed this quick and painful journey of this young wife and have poured out their support and prayers to the Glenns.
I am sorry for the loss her loved ones are going though and extend my deepest sympathy to son Matthew, husband David Ray Glenn, fellow law students and church family. Rhonda died yesterday.
