Glenna R. (Schultz) Fulmer, 84, of Mifflin, PA and formerly of Lansdale, Boyertown and Millersville, died Friday, August 10, 2012 in her home.
Born in Boyertown, she was a daughter of the late J. Willis and Jennie M. (Kuhns) Schultz.
In her earlier years, Glenna taught and coached at Manor-Millersville High School from 1950 to 1955 and taught at the former Schwenksville Joint High School for almost two years. After retiring from teaching, she was a full-time mother, homemaker, farmer, quilter, gardener and, at one point, returned to Penn State to further her education. In her later years, she had various work experiences including working as a file clerk with the Colon and Rectal Association, retiring in 1998; following this she worked with Willow Grove Bank in the check processing and deposit services center departments, retiring in 2001. She was also actively involved with her children and grandchildren and with their activities, attending numerous field hockey, softball, baseball and soccer games, as well as concerts, ceremonies and plays. She was an active member of Palm Schwenkfelder Church where she enjoyed quilting with the Ladies’ Aide Society of the church and was a former member of the United Schwenkfelder Choir in Worcester. She also attended St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Nook and was currently attending the Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Mifflintown.
Glenna was extremely creative and always had several projects going at one time as she was a quilter, knitter, calligrapher and cross-stitcher. She loved to cook and bake and was also still involved with the writing of the “In Retrospect” for the Schwenkfeldian. Glenna was an avid Philadelphia Phillies and Penn State fan.
