Glendene Louise Breshears October 11, 1920 – January 25, 2013 Glendene Louise Breshears passed away on January 25, 2013, peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born October I l, 1920, in Magnet, TX to Glen E. St. John and Vera Bell St. John. She had a sister, Eula May, who died in infancy, and two brothers, William (Dorothy) and Lawrence (Eva Belle). She married Paul E. Breshears on December 22, 194l. They had two children, Paul E Breshears Jr., and Linda Berry. With her husband serving in the military, she raised their children, while working in the fruit fields and orchards and helping her widowed mother in Grand Valley, CO. Upon Paul's discharge, they settled on Morrisiana Mesa, CO. Paul was called back into service during the Korean War. After his return, the family moved to Rangely, CO in 1952, where they lived the remainder of their lives. Glendene was most proud of her ability as a bookkeeper, and worked several jobs doing this, until she purchased the H & R Block franchise, doing taxes, which she managed until she retired. She always had a large vegetable garden, and canned the produce it provided. She kept her friends and family warm with her crocheted afghans. She always had a dog (or two or three) which she loved dearly. She enjoyed camping and going to Oklahoma to visit family there. One of her biggest thrills was when her brother, Lawrence took her to Canada on a fishing trip, and she caught the biggest fish. She is predeceased by her parents; brothers; a sister-in-law, Eva Belle St. John, and husband, Paul. She is survived by her son, Paul E. Jr. (Sharon); daughter, Linda, and honorary daughter, Jean E. Smith; her grandchildren, Curtis Kinney (Dee); Roy Kinney (Shanna); Paul Eugene Breshears; Peggy Thompson; Jim Walston (Monica); Marty Walston; Jennifer Forbis (Koy); Aimee (Ken) Brown; Tom Kinney, and Wayne (Mareanne); l5 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
