Trescher, Glendora Rollins

Obituary

Glendora Rollins Trescher (Dodie) passed away on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 9, 2021., in Dallas, TX.   She was 101 years old, a woman of remarkable spirit, love, joy, inquisitiveness and generosity.   It was fitting that her last day with us was Mother’s Day, as she was mother to not only her two daughters and their friends, but also to world-wide friends made on travels, to her family of helpers at Edgemere, to an array of cousins, nieces and nephews.

 

Dodie was born August 6, 1919 in Des Moines, Iowa, to Harry Tebbetts Rollins and Glendora McCord Rollins.  She was the third of four children, with a little sister following in her wake, and a beloved dog, Bumford, trotting happily along.   A child of the Depression, she learned to throw nothing away – paper only used on one side, aluminum foil—and to gather family, friends and former strangers into her circle of storytellers, laughter, blooming flowers and the ever-present Love of God.

 

A graduate of Vassar College, Dodie met her husband, Robert L. Trescher, then a Naval Officer,  in wartime San Diego, CA as he prepared to deploy to New Guinea. They were married on their sixth date, in 1943.  After the war, they returned to Philadelphia, where her husband was a Partner at the law firm Montgomery, McCracken, Walker and Rhoads. The couple had a lifelong devotion to the University of Pennsylvania and the Penn Museum, the American Bar Association and various community organizations, not least of which was her church.

 

She was predeceased by her husband of 59 years.  She is survived by daughters Victoria Agnich and husband Richard of Dallas, TX, and Ellen Haas of Kirkland, WA, grandsons Robert Agnich and wife Tory, in Dallas, Michael and Kelli Agnich and their children Landry (13), Emily (11) and Gavin (5 months) in Menlo Park, CA, Jonathan and Jessica Agnich and children Elizabeth (4) and Elliiot (2) in San Francisco CA, and William Haas of Los Angeles, CA.  In addition to these official family members, there is a diaspora of “family” in China, Australia, South Korea, Philadelphia, Charleston, and Dallas.  Her longtime caregivers, Linda Coffey, Juliet Kerr, and Mariatu Kabba, have become a treasured part of her family and the loving staff at Edgemere deserve our gratitude.

 

The family will hold a private celebration of Dodie’s life.  Memorials may be given to the Dallas Arboretum, one of her favorite gardens of all.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
