Many will remember Glenda for the smiles and laughs that followed her everywhere she went. She brought out the best in people and pushed them to reach their full potential. She was a dedicated mother, grandmother, and friend. Glenda’s social calendar was always full, she managed to make time for everyone.

Glenda gained her wings and flew up to be with the love of her life once again. Glenda will be immensely missed by all who knew and loved her.
