Glenn was born in

Garrison, North Dakota on

November 25, 1956 to

Cletie and Gertie

(Schlenker) Schreiner. He

was raised in Garrison

and graduated from

Garrison High School and

Bismarck State College.

After college, Glenn start-

ed farming and worked at

the Falkirk Mine until his

retirement from mining in


He married his high

school sweetheart, Paula

(Matthews) Schreiner, on

September 18, 1976 and

they were blessed with

three children, who are

still trying to figure out

which one of them was

his favorite. His children

ALL agree there was never

a dull moment with their

Dad and that they were

taught at a very young age

to enjoy his love of music,

especially ‘The Eagles’,

whenever they got in the

vehicle. Paula was diag-

nosed with ALS in No-

vember 2009 and Glenn

provided loving care dur-

ing her illness. Paula lost

her battle to ALS on No-

vember 7, 2011.

He lived his entire life

in the Garrison/Max area

and was very active in

both communities in

many ways. Glenn was ac-

tive in St. Nicholas

Church where he was a

member of the Knights of

Columbus. He served on

various boards throughout

the area.

In 2012, Glenn was

blessed to find happiness

again with Candace

Trueblood. They married

on October 27, 2017. They

so looked forward to en-

joying retirement and

traveling together. He

lived his life to the fullest

and always had a smile

for everyone he met. He

had a gentle and gracious

heart, which was

displayed in his devotion

to his family and friends.

He was a great dad to his

children and the

GREATEST “Papa” to his

grandchildren, to whom

he taught that donuts

were a good breakfast

choice (or frozen

yogurt/ice cream, if they

promised not to tell their

mom or dad). All who

loved Glenn dearly will

never forget his smile,

wit, charm, the

mischievous twinkle in

his eye and his fervent

love for the Minnesota

Twins, Vikings and ‘The
