Glenda loved kids, anybody’s kids, it didn’t matter to her, she loved them. She would feed them all the snacks they wanted. The kids in Duke would play with the Fly Swatter Bubbles and knew Glenda as the “Popsicle Queen.” The kids also loved the green turtle sandbox with ants.

Glenda will be missed by her church family, her neighbors, and many friends and family. Glenda worked for Rawlings for many years until her health declined. She spent her remaining years at home with her husband and son. She took pride in her special family dinners and her yard full of flowers. She attended church at Duke Community Lighthouse.
