  1. Doyle Walstrom. She married the love of her life, Raymond C. Glynn, in Alamosa on February 27, 1945. They enjoyed over 55 years together until his passing in 2000.

Grams, as she was affectionately known by her family, is survived by her children Nancy (Jerry) Bogner of Alamosa, Trudy (Clark) Rogers of Alamosa, Cindy Glynn of Sanford, Bev (Woody Miller) Glynn of Monte Vista, Melanie Woodward of Alamosa, Valerie (Brian) Crowther of Sanford, and Brian (Pam) Glynn of Alamosa; 24 grandchildren, 56 great-grandchildren, and 10 great-great grandchildren; as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

Grams is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her son-in-law, Jeff Woodward, and two great-grandchildren, Ty Berryman and Maverick Mitchell.

Grams had an incredible passion for her family, she unconditionally and unselfishly loved her children and supported them her entire life. Her home was always filled with the smell of home baked goodies, and Sundays were always special when all her children and grandchildren would gather for lunch. She was also a devout Catholic and spent years as a devoted member of Catholic Daughters.

She worked for several years as the Head of Housekeeping at both the Alamosa Hospital and Conejos County Hospital and was also an employee of Silver Fox Jewelry.

In her free time, she loved playing 1st base on her softball team, which she did until she was 65. Every year, she and our dad would travel, and they loved going to Laughlin, Nevada, and Branson, Missouri. She and our dad would also sing at weddings and funerals.
