      Glenn Russell Abbott, age 91, of Racine passed away on Monday, April 25th, 2022, at Ridgewood Care Center with his family by his side.

Glenn married Marie Alice Farley on June 18th, 1955, at Atonement Lutheran Church in Racine. He owned and operated Abbott Suburban Foods on Hwy 31 in Racine, WI for 16 years. Glenn also worked as a manager at Sentry Foods and after his retirement, at Captains Galley. He was a longtime and very active member of Atonement Lutheran Church (now, Living Faith Church).  Glenn was an extremely hard worker and that was especially shown in his love of gardening. Glenn was every bit the “Cheesehead”! He loved his Packers, his Brewers, his Badgers, and the Bucks. Glenn was famous for sharing his homemade fudge with everyone. Glenn loved sitting down with friends and family to play a good game of cards.

       He was preceded in death by, his parents; his in-laws, Charles, and Margaret Farley; four brothers, Dean, Dale (Fran), Bud and Jim; two sisters, Jeanette (Robert Hughes) and Bonnie and two sisters-in-law, Elenor (Dareld) Kommer and Marge (Carlo) DeLaurentis.

The family of Glenn Abbott wishes to express our deepest gratitude to the amazing staff at Zablocki VA Hospital, Ridgewood Care Center, and Hospice Alliance for their kind and compassionate care.

            A celebration of life for Glenn will be held at 11 AM on April 30th, Saturday, at Living Faith Lutheran Church (2915 Wright Avenue, Racine).

    Didn’t know him well, but knew him as a part of the BEST TEAM of workers In the Grocery Business at Willie’s Sentry on Douglas Ave. In Racine. A very efficient and nice man. Around 30 years ago the store closed, and very near the same time, I left town. I remember Glenn, and my condolences go to ALL of the families involved.
