Glenn Reginald Rosenow, son of Harry and Marietta (Umberhocker) Rosenow, was born July 8, 1934, in Ellsworth Township. He graduated from Litchfield High School in 1952 and served in the Army National Guard.

He was united in marriage to Elizabeth (Betty) Reed Sept. 10, 1960. Throughout the years, Glenn worked on the railroad and dairy and crop farmed, along with raising purebred Berkshire hogs. He was a member of St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church where he was an Elder, Meeker County Saddle Club and Manannah Snowmobile Club. Glenn’s greatest joy was spending time with his family and attending his grandchildren’s activities. He always had a smile and a gift of visiting with friends and strangers alike. He enjoyed coon hunting, his many dogs over the years, throwing horseshoes, playing cards, riding horses and being out on the farm. He was witty and will be remembered for his storytelling, his jokes and legendary one liners. He was honest and warm. He worked hard and lived with dignity. He was a great man.

He is survived by his wife Betty Rosenow of Grove City; children, Brian (Kellie) Rosenow of Grove City, Rhonda (Tom) Dahlstrom of Howard Lake, Renee Rosenow of Litchfield, Renita (Todd) Rohloff of Dassel and Brooks (Kelly) Rosenow of Shakopee; grandchildren, Kirsten Rosenow, Brennan (Jessica) Rosenow, Kayla Rosenow, Joshua Rosenow, Jessica Rosenow-Dahlstrom, Annabelle Rosenow-Dahlstrom, Jordan Rosenow, Tyler Delp, Torey Rohloff (and fiancé Anna), Taeya Rohloff, Emma Rosenow and Riley Rosenow; brothers and sisters, Robert (Diane) Rosenow of Dassel, Ione (Budd) Christensen of Litchfield and Beatrice Donovan of Florida.

He was preceded in death by his parents Harry and Marietta; sister Laverne; brothers and sisters-in-law; and nephew Doug.
