5/12/30 - 11/14/16

Allana Darleen Glander, 86, passed away Monday November 14th 2016, the night of the super moon just as the darkness fell on the land and this great super moon peeped its head over the horizon. How she loved the moon. Sitting on her balcony checking out the moon was a favorite evening pastime. She had talked about this upcoming super moon for weeks. It is a beautiful thing as we know it helped to light her new journey.
She was surrounded with family at her bedside when she passed. Allana, who also went by the names Allana, Your pets nana, Nana, Grandma, Mama G, Atlantis, Chrissy's mom and just good ol' Mom, was a sweet happy woman who genuinely loved her family and friends. She was a true animal lover. She loved watching the squirrels in the backyard and feeding the hummingbirds. When she traveled to Oklahoma to visit her cousins, Diane and Dan, she always brought home stories about her "visit with the raccoons". For many years she ran the business, Allana, Your Pet's Nana. It was a sad day when she finally had to give up her business as she put her heart and soul into all those animals she cared for. At almost 80 years old she was still out walking dogs, petting kitties and feeding the fish, turtles, birds and lizards.
Some of her favorite things to do were go to the Hometown Fair and Fiesta de las Artes to search for perfect gifts for those she loved. She also loved the Olympics and the last couple years talked about wanting to live to see the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. She did! She loved to watch Dancing with the Stars, Jeopardy and the Price is Right. Going to the aquarium with her daughter and grandson were especially fun for her. She spent many years taking the entire family to the Ringling Brother's Circus and collected all kinds of circus memorabilia. She always talked about when the circus came to town on the train when she was a child back in the 1930s. Gunther Gabel-Williams, the lion trainer, would always be her heartthrob. Maybe she will get to meet him on the other side?
The holidays brought so much excitement with her around. One of her favorite things was her Christmas Village that she would put on the mantle each year. It would take days to arrange just oh so perfectly. Purchasing holiday ornaments annually for some of her favorite people was always a must. There are several people that owe their beautifully decorated tree to Allana. You know who you are. It will be a very difficult Christmas without her. She will be missed by so many. We will miss the shuffle of her steps and the sound of her hand coming down the handrail of the stairs as she ventured to get yet one more cup of ice. Oh how she loved her ice. Hopefully they will have a great ice maker and lots of animals in the new place she calls home. We'll be rocking the Nana Shuffle in her memory. We love you and miss you so much! You will be in our hearts forever.
