Glennis Hodges Bland

August 3, 1933 — July 15, 2021

Glennis Bland, age 87, let go of her family’s hands and took the hands of her Lord and Savior on Thursday, July 15 in Statesboro, Georgia under the care of Ogeechee Area Hospice. She was a life-long resident of Bulloch County, born on August 3, 1933 to the late Fannie Williams Hodges and William Hodges. Glennis worked for more than forty years caring for residents at two local nursing homes, Statesboro Nursing Home and Heritage Inn. She loved children, the elderly, gardening, and animals, but her greatest joy came with spending time with her family.

Surviving are her children Dan Bland (Miriam) of Valrico, Florida and Vickie Reid (David) of Statesboro; three beloved grandchildren Ashlin Baisch (Jeff) of Columbia, South Carolina, Graham Reid of Springfield, Georgia, and Tyler Reid of Statesboro; and one cherished great grandchild, Adaline Reid of Statesboro; four sisters, Vivian Colson of Savannah, Joyce Evans of Lyons, Wynell Hampton (Hubert) of Conyers and Ann Seals (Jim) of Tuttle, Oklahoma; two brothers, Alvin Hodges (Sharon) of Alamogordo, New Mexico, and Wendell Hodges (Phyllis) of Putney, Georgia. Glennis loved and prayed for many children (now adults) in Statesboro as if they were her own. Many nieces, nephews, and friends also survive. Glennis is preceded in death by her husband, Mike Bland, and two brothers, Eugene Hodges of Statesboro and Donald Hodges of Bartow, Georgia.

A graveside service will be held Saturday, July 17 at 10:00 in the morning at Eastside Cemetery.
