Her grandchildren were especially fond of her macaroni and cheese, perch fish fry dinners, homemade noodles and desserts too numerous to mention.

Glenn Conner passed away peacefully in the arms of his beloved wife, Cher, on July 26, 2014, at Silverado Senior Living. Glenn was born December 13, 1924, to parents, Jay Alvin and Christine Hahn Conner in Shelton, Washington. At the age of seventeen, he enlisted in the United States Navy and was assigned the job of Radarman First Class. He served in the European, African and Asian Theaters being awarded medals in all. After college, he started his career in Finance with Merrill Lynch where he rapidly excelled and was promoted to manager of the under-performing Oakland, California, branch where he made it hugely successful. Afterwards, he was promoted to positions in New York City and then Regional Manager for all States west of the Rockies. Subsequently, he elected to come and live in California, becoming the manager of the Beverly Hills and San Diego offices, eventually deciding to retire in 1992 while manager of the La Jolla and Palm Springs Offices. On July 4, 1988, he married Cher Sinton of La Jolla on the island of Maui, Hawaii. They resided in La Jolla. Glenn was a gentle man who always made a point of upholding a level of civility. He was also a true adventurer, not a quality normally associated with someone who prided himself on always being proper, which is why it was such a special trait. Watching Glenn embrace every new adventure that was proposed, be it piloting a yacht, motorcycling, skiing, collecting art, playing tennis and so much more was a joy. His enthusiasm and willingness to try new things was yet another special thing about this remarkable man, husband and friend. Amongst his many interests, he served on the board of the Neuroscience Institute to ensure the health and safety of animals. He was a Shriner and a member of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2004, Glenn lived his life, never complaining or bemoaning his fate and having the finest care possible. He lived a full life and lived life fully, proud in his achievements and sustained by the love of his family and friends, a good man. He will be thought of with love, deep respect and admiration. Glenn is survived by his wife, Cher; sisters, Betty and husband, John Weiss, of Eugene, OR, and Beverly Noa of Honolulu, HI; brother-in-law, Mel Harris and wife, Helen, of Placerville, CA; sister-in-law, Marilyn and husband, Bill Hill, of Galt, CA; nephews, Tyler Harris and wife, Jen, Todd Harris and wife, Kristin, and Jimmy Hill and wife, Daniela; niece, Karima; and their families. A celebration of his life will be held on August 19, 2014, at 4:00 p.m. at the La Jolla Country Club. Donations in his honor can be made to Scripps Hospice or the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
