Serving Gogebic, Iron and Ontonagon Counties

Glenda Hansen Gilman

EAGAN, Minn. - Glenda Hansen Gilman, of Eagan, Minnesota, a 65-year-old former resident of Bruce Crossing, Ewen and Ironwood, Michigan, passed away March 1, 2024, at United Hospital at St. Paul, Minnesota.

She played basketball on the varsity team at Luther L. Wright High School in Ironwood and graduated in 1977. She also played at Gogebic Community College.

She was a beloved mother and grandmother.

She is survived by her children, Joshua, Tegan and Dane Gilman; mother, Anita Hansen; brothers, Clay and Joseph; sister, Holly Fiedler; a grandchild, Max; and nieces and nephews, Ryan Hansen, Logan, Luke and Leah Fiedler, and Jack, Abby and Sam Hansen.

Her father, Victor, age 84, preceded her in death in 2017.

We are all saddened, but she is now safe in the arms of her savior Jesus, never to hurt or suffer again.

Glenda was always a tenderhearted and sympathetic girl. One time when she was a wee little girl, she found a dead baby mouse. She had to line a matchbox with cotton batten, and we buried it in our backyard.

A memorial service will be held a little later at Presbyterian Homes in Cottage Grove, Minnesota.

She will be sadly missed. We are brokenhearted.
