Glenda enjoyed collecting cookbooks and cooking, embroidering, was a big St. Louis Cardinal fan and loved the ballgame. She also loved country music. Especially the Saturday morning oldie show at KZNN. She never missed it. Glenda’s greatest treasure was her kids and grandkids. Glenda was a friend to many people. She worked at several factories and at Phelps Health until she retired. She touched the heart of many people. Glenda was a lifetime member of the ladies auxiliary, a proud supporter of the veterans and a member of Pilot Knob Baptist Church. Even during her illness, she faithfully attended on Facebook. Glenda will be missed in a lot of hearts and in Summerfield.

Glenda’s favorite Bible verse was John 14:2. “In my Fathers house, there are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to a prepare a place for you.”
