Obituary

Glennie Stafford-Klann, age 81, of Three Oaks, Michigan died peacefully Monday, May 30, 2022 in the comfort of her family’s presence.

Her life began September 28, 1940, in Elwood, Indiana to Burl and Della Hobson.  Burl died when Glennie was young, so her stepfather, Huffman “Huff” Shaw, raised her. 

Glennie married David L. Stafford August 15, 1958 in Elwood, Indiana.  They had three sons from this union.  After thirty-four years of marriage, he preceded her in death on March 4, 1993.  She married Daryl Crandell April 20, 1996 in Three Oaks, Michigan.  After ten years of marriage, Daryl preceded in her death February 18, 2007.  Glennie then married Albert Klann January 20, 2008.  After 10 years of marriage, Albert preceded her in death October 29, 2018.

Glennie was a devoted Christian, having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. She attended New Life Community Church and was a long-time member of the First Reformed Church, both in Three Oaks, Michigan. Glennie’s sons and grandchildren were the joy of her life. Previously, she enjoyed crocheting and baking for her loved ones. She will be remembered for her sense of humor, care giving, friendliness, and ability to love all those around her.

Glennie will be greatly missed by family and friends.  She is survived by her three sons, David L. Stafford, Jr. of Carmel, Indiana, Kevin (Tracy) Stafford of Rolling Prairie, Indiana, Jeff (Judy) Stafford of Galien; four grandchildren, Kylie (Austin) Sullins of Columbus AFB Mississippi, Taylor Stafford of LaPorte, Indiana, Jake Stafford and Brooke Stafford, both of Rolling Prairie, Indiana; step grandchild, Brandy (Jeremy) Payne of Bridgman; four great grandchildren; one sister Shelba (Ken) Enright of Lake Havasu City, Arizona; and a host of nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husbands, David L. Stafford, Sr., Daryl Crandell, and Albert Klann; three sisters, Twila Tranbarger, Vivian Gaither, Carol Wardwell; and three brothers, Estel Shaw, Gene Shaw, and Max Shaw.

Family and friends will gather Saturday, June 4, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. until time of service at 12:00 noon in Real Life Community Church, 12 East Michigan Street, Three Oaks.
