Coronavirus (COVID-19) Status

Glenise was born on December 19th, 1957 to Floyd Thomas and June Annette Holland (Player).  She graduated from LaVega High School in 1976.  Glenise married Richard “Dutch” Cohrt on July 15, 1980 and they had one child, their daughter Erin.  Glenise served 30 years at the VA Regional Office where she always put the Veterans and their needs first and made relationships to last a lifetime.

Glenise was a devout Christian.  She always offered prayers to anyone in need.  She started her days and ended her days talking to God.  She had a love for gardening/plants and sitting on the back porch in her swing.  She could be found swinging and reading a book almost every day.  If she was not outside, she was watching the Baylor Women’s basketball team play.  She loved spending time with her family and friends any chance she could.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd and June Holland.

Glenise is survived by her husband, Dutch and their daughter, Erin.  Three brothers, Tommy Holland and wife Holly; Sammy Holland and wife Rose; Kendall Holland and wife Karen.  Brother-in-law, Kenneth “Babe” Cohrt and wife Cindy; as well as many nieces and nephews.  Glenise has a special group of friends; The YaYas; her beloved wiener dog, Mollie and grand dog, Frankie.

On July 9, 2018, Glenise was gifted a second chance at life when she received a double lung transplant.  In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations made to UT Southwestern Heart and Lung Transplant Clinic.

Family would like to extend a special thank you to all staff at William P. Clements Hospital for the exceptional care provided during her final hospital stay.

Place of Service: Rosemound Cemetery , 3201 S. 12th St.; Waco, TX 76706

    My heart was so saddened to learn today of the loss of one of the most beautiful persons that touched my life since we were in elementary school together. Glenise was always so kind and fun loving and our friendship was for more than 50 years. The last time I visited with her was about 6 months ago and talking with her was as much fun as always. Dutch and Erin, Glenise loved you both so very much, she is now a Heavenly Angel and will be in our hearts forever.
    Many prayers for you both of you, your families and for God’s strength to endure the loss of Glenise that is loved by so many.
