Glenda was a special lady and family member. I have no doubt that Jesus will continue to use her in heaven as he did here on earth.

Glenda worked for me at Continental Western Group. She was always smiling - we had a good time! My sympathies and prayers to her family as she talked about them often. I know she is in a beautiful place!

Glenda was always such a sweet lady. I remember her helping us with some 4-H stuff I think it was. I’m so very sorry for your family’s loss. You’ve all been in my thoughts. May the memories of her bring you some peace during this difficult time.

I worked with Glenda side by side for 6 years in the early nineties when Farmland opened a region sales office in Lincoln. While I lost contact with Glenda through the years I remember her as one of the nicest people you will ever meet in your life. She was so very helpful in setting up a new office and was indispensable for the years Farmland had the office open. I know she will be greatly missed by all her many friends and especially her family.
If everyone lived their life like Glenda this world would be a better place.
God Bless.

The most important thing to Mom was her family and I consider myself a better person for having her in my life. That is what she did she brought out the best in others by setting the example of how to be a good person. While I will have a hole in my life I know she will be watching over all of us.

I worked with Glenda through her work with NE Coop Council. Glenda was always a lady, polite and kind. I enjoyed visiting with her and quite often she'd speak of her grandchildren. She cherished them. I will miss Glenda.
