Glenna (Dorman) Ozanne, 74, of Cozad, Nebraska, died April 28, 2023 at her home in Cozad with her daughters by her side.

Glenna was born on April 19, 1949, in Gothenburg, NE to Ora and Elsie Dorman. She grew up on the family  farm north of Gothenburg. Glenna completed her school education from Gothenburg High School with the class of 1967. Following high school, she obtained her CNA and moved to Colorado where she worked taking care of the mentally challenged children and loved every minute of it. Glenna was married to Gary Branham and to this union two daughters were born: Gina and Goni. In 1972, she moved back to Nebraska where she had a daycare and cleaned businesses in Gothenburg. She later worked at Monroe's for several years until the store closed. Glenna cleaned houses for others on the side and loved doing things for others including making meals, baking banana bread, and loved to make and decorate cakes for her family events and birthdays. 

She was a woman of simple tastes and interests. Glenna loved nothing more than spending time with her family. She loved being a mom, aunt, and grandma, family was everything to her. She loved attending all of her grandchildren's sporting events. She also enjoyed doing crafts with her beloved grandchildren and often sewed their Halloween costumes for them. A DIY enthusiast at heart, she spent much of her free time watching anything related to these types of shows.

Survivors include two daughters, Goni Branham of Cozad, Gina (James) Spellman of North Platte, her sister Alice (Lawrence) McCain of Gothenburg, grandchildren, Kaylynn Jo (Chance) McMullen, Tyler McMullen, Ian Branham, Cydney Branham, Brianna Valenzuela,  Kaytlynn Spellman, and Tye Spellman along with many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Glenna was loved by so many and will truly be missed by so many, especially her family.
