She worked hard her entire life. Glenda helped raise her siblings and supported her family by working in a glass plant and a chicken processing plant.
She endured heartache and loss many times over, yet was able to persevere and keep smiling.
Glenda came from a family of musicians and was an excellent guitar player. She never had any formal training, just learned it all by ear. She played in many different venues with her family and friends during her younger years.
She enjoyed watching old westerns, crime shows and wrestling, but what she enjoyed most was the family reunions and get-togethers, where she could visit, tell wonderful stories about the past and have impromptu jam sessions.
Her pets were part of her family and she loved many over the years. During recent years, Gizmo the Pug was her constant companion and friend.
During her time with us, she made many friends and will be constantly remembered and deeply missed.
