Glenna EB Kelly
January 20, 1962 – February 16, 2022
Glenna passed away peacefully at UCSF Hospital surrounded by her loving family after a valiant 18-month battle with cancer. She had done extremely well in her battle, but then took an unexpected turn. Glenna is survived by her mother, Mary, her brothers Jerry (Tiffany), Roger (Cristen), Norman, her sister-in-law Jeanne (Pat) Deignan, her brother-in-law Jim Kelly, her husband Dan, her daughters Katherine, Diana (Alex) Kelly-Reyes, Victoria, grandchildren Finley, Molly and Baby #3. She also leaves to mourn several nieces and nephews.
Glenna was born in Modesto, California, attended Ripon Christian School and Calvin College. After earning a business degree, she moved to San Francisco where she worked for a private school, then joined Swinerton and Walberg Builders. She worked in the accounting department and in the field with project managers. She eventually worked her way up to Senior Applications Manager. In her 30 years with Swinerton, she worked on a high-rise job site from start to finish. She worked from groundbreaking through to steel cladding, including core and shell, interior finishes and final tape cutting for occupancy. Few women working in construction have this experience on their CV.
Glenna was highly respected in her industry and had a reputation for being honest in her presentation and opinions.
In Swinerton, Glenna met Dan. They married in 1993 and were together for 28 years.
