Glennice Pearce Aronson Coger, 99, of Port Charlotte, Fla., and formerly of Manchester, Conn., passed away Sunday, Feb. 9, 2014, at Harbour Health Skilled Nursing Facility at South Port Square.
She was born Oct. 1, 1914, in Newport, Vt., the daughter of Marshall and Mary Pearce.
Glennice resided in Manchester from 1950 to 1976, where she was an elementary teacher at both Bowers and Robertson, and she will be fondly remembered by many of her students, with whom she kept in touch after retirement. She and her first husband, Arnold Aronson, moved to Port Charlotte in the mid-’70s, and she has resided there since. Strongly independent and always desiring to be well-dressed, Glennice was a very good bridge player, enjoyed knitting and loved to travel internationally. After her first husband passed, she married Mason Coger of Corning, N.Y., for a wonderful 13 years of being together.
Glennice leaves her daughter, MaryAnne Galuska of Vernon, Conn.; as well as two nieces, Janet Adams of Stowe, Vt., and Judith Belding of Bozeman, Mont.
There are no calling hours, and a graveside service will be held in Lyndon Center, Vt., in the late spring.
Memorial donations in Glennice’s memory may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, P.O. Box 1000, Dept. 142, Memphis, TN 38101-9908.
Her family extends its most grateful thanks to Cathy Ramos, her caregiver, for the most loving and compassionate care possible over these past two years.
