Glenna Mae Carson (Ball)

Glenna Mae Carson (Ball) at the age of 88 years old passed away in her own home in West Point on June 10, 2019, of heart disease/heart attack. She was born Nov. 8, 1930, at Eagle Rock, Mo., but spent her early life seasonally travelling to west coast lumber camps and back to Eagle Rock to her family’s farm. She attended Amador High School in Sutter Creek, but graduated from high school in Cassville, Mo., after travelling back to Missouri.

Glenna was a 70-year resident of West Point. She was the owner of Sierra Hardware and Lumber in West Point. Glenna’s life was filled with her love of taking care of people. She took care of her husband James “Arkie” Carson, her companion Lonnie Delap, her children Jackie and Donna, her grandson Daniel, her great-grandchildren Gabriel, Lilyahna and Kharisma, along with many other local family’s children who were in need of a “Grammy.”

Glenna is survived by her grandchildren Daniel and Jennifer, her great-grandchildren Gabriel, Lilyahna, Kharisma, Alexis, Cassandra, Judie and Dakota and her great-great grandchildren Vincent and Marley. She is also survived by her sister Martha Brashear of Davis and brother Norman Ball of Eagle Rock.
