Glenda was such a kind, sweet lady. She never had a cross word and was always gracious. She was an example of a Proverbs 31 woman, and I am blessed to have known her.

My heart has been sad but glad this week.
Long time family friend and neighbor Glenda Norman passed away and her service is Thursday.
Chris will be raiding her freezer in the afterlife for ice cream, I just know it!
Glenda is one of the most beautiful souls I ever knew. I never felt invisible around her - which is kind of a big thing for me as a kid.
And as much dental stuff as I had to have done, she was always a calming force for me so I could limit anxiety and just get through it with Dr Forbus.
I know she’s struggled a great deal recently with health issues and those battles are won and done.
But a great light on this earth has gone out. She will be missed!

Glenda was such a sweet lady that I know will be missed by all that knew her. One of my fondest memories of Glenda is when she was my long-term sub for my classroom as I was on maternity leave after Bronson was born. I always knew my classes were well taken care of and didn't have to worry about being absent anytime she subbed for me! ;) Love and prayers to Glenda's precious family.
