SMITH, Glenda Blanche (nee Tonks) –
Sadly, on Thursday December 17, 2020, Glenda Blanche Smith (nee Tonks) passed away at Joseph Brant Hospital, Burlington, ON at the age of 85, after a brief illness. Heartfelt thanks to palliative care nurse Diana. Glenda's pride and joy were her two daughters Laurie Simpson and Karen Lombardi and much-loved son in law Bert Lombardi. She had great love and pride for her three grandson's and their partners McKenzie Simpson (wife Amanda), Philip Lombardi (fiancé Tonii) and Christopher (wife Natasha). Glenda lived a long and abundant life with her predeceased husband George W. Smith of 42 years. Whether sailing, travelling the world or enjoying wintering in Florida, they enjoyed the time they spent in their custom-built home in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Glenda much enjoyed her garden and had a lifelong love of books. In Glenda’s later years, she was influenced by her son-in-law Bert, he introduced her to the game of golf and also the love and appreciation of wine. Over her life, Glenda was blessed to have three wonderful dogs; Skipper, Peanut and Sheldon. A private family service will be held on December 22nd at St. Mark's Church, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON. When safe to do so, a celebration of life will be announced in The Niagara Advance. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to Red Roof Retreat, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and can be done through Morgan Funeral Home, 415 Regent St. P.O. Box 453, Niagara-on-the-Lake or at
