Glenda was a long time member of the Seekers prayer group. She was an avid Auburn fan and loved Auburn sports after she met her husband. She “forcefully instructed” Joe Namath to move his Corvette out of her parking place, while in grad school In Tuscaloosa, and that was her first step to becoming an Auburn fan.
Glenda volunteered on several community boards and civic clubs. She was a member and chair of the Hartselle Planning Commission from July 1991to October 2001. She was a member of the Hartselle Rotary Club becoming a Paul Harris fellow. Glenda owned Hartselle Office Supply for several years and enjoyed retirement afterward. She will be missed by her many friends over the years. Her Irish wit and humor will be missed. Glenda loved her family, friends, and cats. In lieu of flowers, she requested donations to Hospice of the Valley, who took care of her in her final days, and the Morgan County Animal Shelter, because she loved cats.
