Her father, James, and her Grandma Myrtle Scott preceded her in death.
Glenda was a homemaker from the beginning. She had three younger siblings that she helped tend to when she was younger. After graduation, she attended Ivy Tech in Indianapolis, where she wanted to become a seamstress. Little did she know, that was when she would meet her future husband on the bus to school. They were married at St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church in Connersville and was married for 51 years. She was a member of St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church. Glenda was very active in 4H, Homemakers Club and Open Class Canning, where she canned the best jams and jellies and vegetables around. She could be found every year entering the State Fair bringing home Grand Champion awards or setting up at Metamora selling her delicious wares. She was very proud of her talents and looked forward to trying something new and presenting it every year. Glenda’s love of family spurred her interest in Genealogy. At every family get-together, she would bring out her camera and would snap the beloved group picture. She had a habit of getting her finger in the shot but that was what made it special. It began with the immediate family but soon spread out to all the families around us. Her dedication to documenting the lives of others made her incredibly happy. She also loved cooking, gardening, music and watching old mystery movies.
Glenda will be remembered most for being a selfless, altruistic wife and mother who always had a smile even when times were tough. She had a quiet strength. She never complained and always looked towards a better future. She was quick with a smile and never knew a stranger. She will be missed by all.
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
