It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that the family of Glenda McGregor announces her passing on Sunday, October 16th, 2016. Glenda was born on February 27th, 1946 in Fort Frances, Ontario to Glen and Gladys Steele. She grew up in the west end of Fort Frances and was a graduate of Fort Frances High School. Glenda was married to the love of her life, Neil McGregor, on August 16th, 1969 and they chose to reside in Thunder Bay. Glenda graduated from the McKellar School of Nursing in 1966 and enjoyed a successful career in nursing that lasted an amazing 42 years. Glenda worked in several hospitals in Fort Frances, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Thunder Bay. She is fondly remembered by every coworker and countless patients who were all touched by her genuine kindness and compassion. Glenda had a stunning smile and possessed such a pleasant personality; she lifted the spirits of everyone around her. She spent her entire life putting the needs of others far ahead of her own and helped so many people through the most difficult of times. Glenda cherished all of her relationships with family and friends and especially enjoyed the time she spent with family at the island on Rainy Lake. Glenda is survived by her husband Neil, nephews John, Paul and Bob Steele and their families, sisters-in-law Loretta Hill, Nadine Element and Cheryl McGregor, nieces Miranda and Melissa Hill, Jenny Pert-Wesley and nephews Lyle and Kenny Pert.
