Glenna Scamell

Obituary Condolences Flowers

Glenna M. Scamell 94, passed away on June 11, 2014. She was born on December 9, 1919 in Kearny, New Jersey. Glenna married Frank W. Scamell in 1940 and they relocated to Houston in 1952 with their three children.
Glenna enjoyed helping others. She was a devoted member of the hospital auxiliaries at Sam Houston Hospital and later at Spring Branch Memorial Hospital for over 25 years. Glenna was also a very active volunteer at Spring Branch Presbyterian Church which she and her family joined in 1952. However, Glenna's greatest joy was her family. To her five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, she was affectionately called "Doe" or "Great Doe." Even when her health was declining, any conversation with Glenna always began with, "How are the children?"
She was preceded in death by her husband, Frank, and her brother, Donald Monteith. She is survived by her sister, Doris Monteith of Clifton, New Jersey; her son, Richard Scamell of Houston; her daughters, Sharon Moore (Wayne) of Brownsville, Texas and Diane Hickman (Ron) of Canyon Lake, Texas.
The funeral arrangements are entrusted to Memorial Oaks Funeral Home. A private service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that a donation be made in Glenna's name to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
