Gene is the sister of Pauline Collins Shofner ('65) of VA, and the first cousin of Nita Collins Hastings ('60) of VA and Rip Collins ('65) of TN.
From Nita Collins Hastings ('60) of VA to Karen Weinstein Witte ('60) of FL and the Class of 1960 - 07/06/11, 4:34 PM - " Gene Collins Glave":
It is with a heavy heart that I let you all know that my beloved cousin, Gene Collins Glave, passed away this afternoon. This is a sad, sad day for all who knew and loved her.
From Al Simms ('60) of VA to Karen Weinstein Witte ('60) of FL and the Class of 1960 - 07/06/11, 6:13 PM - " Gene Collins Glave":
|Karen and Classmates,
I just found this video of Gene undergoing chemo and talking about how she is handling it. It was recorded Oct 8, 2010 and brought tears to my eyes and my wife's too.
Thank you so much for relaying this sad news, Al. Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your friend.
Some people are just more alive than others. Gene was that way. I only
met her one time - at the 45-Year Reunion for your Class in
2005 - but that
much was very evident even then.
This is an image she sent me of that night.

Gene Glave succumbs to cancer
Posted by Erica Jackson Curran on Wed, Jul 6, 2011 at 5:20 PM
Gene Glave passed away Thursday after a long battle with breast cancer. Having worked as a registered nurse and the manager of pediatric services for Roper St. Francis Healthcare, Glave was familiar with the disease and approached her treatment with a brave attitude when she was diagnosed in 2006. She blogged about her battle and eventually used her experiences to create a popular, humorous play called The Mammologues. Glave wrapped up her first run of chemotherapy later that year, but the cancer returned in May 2010.
Glave left a message to friends and family, which was posted on Facebook this afternoon:
We'll update soon with information on local services.

For All the Saints
- Lyrics by William W. How
Music (Sine Nomine) by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), 1906
For all the saints
who from their labors rest,
Who thee by faith
before the world confessed.
Thy name, O Jesus,
be forever blest.
Thou wast their Rock,
their Fortress and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their captain
in the well-fought fight;
Thou, in the darkness drear,
their one true light.
O may Thy soldiers,
faithful, true, and bold,
Fight as the saints
who nobly fought of old,
And win with them
the victor's crown of gold.
And when the strife is fierce,
the warfare long,
Steals on the ear
the distant triumph song,
And hearts are brave again,
and arms are strong.
From earth's wide bounds,
from ocean's farthest coast,
Thro' gates of pearl
streams in the countless host,
Singing to Father,
Son, and Holy Ghost,
