  1. Met Glenda & Darrel through the SW KS Retired School group. Enjoyed knowing both of them and being volunteers for Meals on Wheels benefits. My 1st cousin, Ben Malone, married Beverly. You all are in my thoughts & prayers.

  2. Glenda was a delightful friend and fellow teacher at Kentwood Elementary in Big Spring, Texas.
    Her devotion to God, family, friends and students was so evident. We miss her radiant smile and her words of encouragement to others even while she was in pain. It was a joy and blessing to know Glenda.
    Prayers and love to her loving sons and their treasured families.

  3. Glenda and her family were the closest friends(family) I’ve known! Her wit and cander were 2 of her memorable qualities but her impact on my life and my husbands life cannot be measured. She was a mentor to me but more importantly a friend, as close as my own family. My condolences to the family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest peacefully Mrs Glenda.

  4. Glenda was a very strong woman and loving, nurturing mother. She will never stop being missed. Something about the women in this family follow Glenda and that is something so special. My condolences l. Love you guys.
