Gleneta Cashman

May 19, 1923 – January 6, 2015

Nora Gleneta Cashman was born to Harry and Mildred O’Neil on May 19th, 1923 in Sandy Cove, Nova Scotia.  Gleneta was predeceased by her parents, her husband Joseph Leo Cashman and her six siblings.  Grateful for Gleneta’s full life and left to carry on her legacy of love and friendship are her three sons: Leyland Lent (Diane) of Nova Scotia, Alfred Cashman (Lucille) of Ontario and Gary Cashman (Gloria) of Merville B.C.  Gleneta was also loved by five grandchildren:  Jim, Lisa (Jon), Candice, Steve (Cheryle), Matthew (Tanya), nine great-grandchildren:  Aron, Sierra, Jolissa, Madison, Krystena, Ava, Brody, Leo and Gavin as well as four sisters-in-law and many extended family members.

Gleneta’s home for the last three years was at the Comox Valley Seniors Village. Words cannot express our appreciation for the exemplary care Mom received from her “family of caregivers.”  She was always smiling when we came for a visit.  Thank you also to friends Joan and Brenda.

As per her wishes, friends are invited to join her family for a Celebration of Life at 11am on Friday, February 20th, 2015 at Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road. 

For those wishing, donations in Gleneta’s memory to the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation (Hospice Project) would be appreciated (2137 Comox Ave., Comox BC.  V9M 1P2.)
