Glynis Kuehne Obituary

Visitation will be at the church on Thursday, January 4, 2024, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM and will continue again the day of the funeral one hour prior to the service.

Glynis Raye, was born on April 8, 1948 the daughter of Adolph and Patricia (Tufts) Lemke. She was one of three children born to the Long Prairie couple. She graduated from Long Prairie High School, and then attended Alexandria Technical College earning a diploma in Women in Agriculture & Administrative Office Management.

Glynis married her childhood classmate David Kuehne on August 21, 1971, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Long Prairie. Their marriage combined households, and created the family which included Ammy, Leah, and soon to come after Chad, Cindy and Craig. The couple lived in Hadley and Slayton before moving back to Long Prairie for good in 1976. Together David and Glynis milked cows and worked the land. Glynis also worked outside the farm and spent time at Dairyridge, Stearns Manufacturing and Coleman. Her favorite job was taking care of her family and making memories. Glynis was an active member of the Trinity Lutheran Church, the Minnesota Limousin Cattle Association, she volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and was a 4H leader.  She had a successful green thumb growing plants inside and out, flourishing under her care. She kept a full garden in the summer, and made sure her bird feeders were full, so that she could sit and watch them flutter around. Glynis started each day walking her dogs, then followed that by feeding them, and their sheep and feline friends. In her downtime she would hunker down with a good book and was an avid photographer, she loved capturing memories. Glynis rarely missed an activity or group event for her grandchildren, and you could find her smiling face at the local festivals enjoying the time with family and friends. She had moments of orneriness, but her compassion and thoughtfulness that she showed for others far outweighed it.

Glynis joined her parents and son Craig in heaven on December 31, 2023. She leaves behind her husband, David, Long Prairie; children, Ammy (Rob) Rasmusen of Burnsville, Leah (Steve) Lymburner of Osage, Chad (Teri) Kuehne of Long Prairie and Cindy (David) Durheim of Askov; grandchildren, Heather (Korben Palmer) Jager, Michael (Katy Wiener) Durheim, Caroline (Travis), Caylee, Cierra and Chad Kuehne Jr.; great-grandchildren, Thomas, Wesley, Bennett, Henry Becker, Reid, Eleanor, Ty Lymburner and baby Durheim; siblings, Paula Lemke and Mike (Micki) Lemke many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
