Holloway Bequest Received by Grace Foundation

The Grace Foundation was blessed with a bequest from Glenna Holloway. Glenna was a long time member of Grace and was very interested in and a generous supporter of the Youth and International ministries, especially the Kenya ministry and the Russian initiative. Glenna also gave freely for facilities and building needs over the years. Glenna was a member of the Priscilla Circle and the Movie Club, where she enjoyed the fellowship. Glenna was in church every Sunday when able and considered Grace her family.

Glenna’s bequest was well planned and her wishes were detailed in her will. Glenna wanted a principal spendable fund to address the current needs of the church and principal retained funds to help Grace achieve its vision and ministries long after she left this earthly life.

Based on Glenna’s wishes, principal retained funds were established for International Ministries, Children and Youth Ministries, Russian Initiative, and a general fund to be administered by the Church Council for the needs of the church. Foundation funds are not permitted to be used for activities normally included in the church’s annual budget but to help the church grow its ministries into the future.

Glenna gave her Bailey Road home to the church. It is now being used as a parsonage for Pastor Tammy and her family. Glenna also gifted the church community with her entire catalog of poetry. A three-time Illinois Poet Laureate, Glenna frequently contributed poetry to journals, magazines, newspapers, and anthologies.

Glenna’s gifts are a testament to her strong Christian faith and her belief in the future of Grace, and in praise to God for his bountiful blessings. If you have any questions about the Grace Foundation, please contact Scott Oats by email or phone (630) 355-4716.
