Glenna (Spotts) Nulton, age 91, of Shermans Dale, gained her angel wings on November 24, 2021. Born at home on September 2, 1930 to the late Elmer and Carrie (Rambo) Spotts of Shermans Dale, Glenna is survived by three sons: Matthew (Diane) Nulton of Shermans Dale, Stephen (Lorrie) Nulton of Liverpool, and John Nulton of Shermans Dale; six grandchildren: Kassandra Nulton of Newburg, Isaac Nulton of Shermans Dale, Robert (Rebecca) Nulton of Reedsville, Sally (Nathan) Miller of Millerstown, Emma Nulton of Orem, Utah, and Gretta Nulton of Liverpool; four great grandsons; and three siblings: Arlene Kretzing of Shermans Dale (formerly of Landisburg), Harold (Janet) Spotts and Kelvin (Evelyn) Spotts, both of New Bloomfield. In addition to her parents, Glenna is preceded in death by her devoted husband of 50 years, Samuel R. Nulton, who died in 2015. Glenna was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, who enjoyed working with children and helping the “old ladies” with bingo.
Glenna graduated from New Bloomfield High School before earning her degree in elementary education from Shippensburg Teachers College. She began her career teaching in Harrisburg, eventually returning to Perry County to teach special education, 3rd grade and 5th grade in the West Perry School District, from which she retired. She was a faithful member of Christ Lutheran Church in New Bloomfield, where she taught Sunday School, and served as the Junior Sunday School Superintendent for many years. Glenna was also a member of the Rebekah Lodge (now Lady Landis). Glenna enjoyed playing sports and games of all kinds. She was an avid bowler and often served as pitcher during kickball games on the playground at recess. She and her husband enjoyed traveling and sight-seeing across the country. Together, they also organized and promoted country music shows at Lupfers Grove to benefit local charities. The highlight of her year was sitting by the stove at the Nulton Christmas Tree Farm where she would greet old friends and welcome new customers, all while making sure each young visitor received their Christmas coloring book.
Because of this busy season at the Nulton Christmas Tree Farm, the family is planning a Gathering of Friends, Memorial Service, and Inurnment for April 2022. The services will be held at Christ Lutheran Church in New Bloomfield with inurnment to follow in New Bloomfield Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Glenna’s name to her church or to the Neighbor Helping Neighbor Food Bank.
