Glenda as a child went to grade school in Naponee, Nebraska, K thru 6th grade. Then she transferred to Republican City from 7th to her 11th grade year. The School at Republican City closed so Glenda then went to Franklin for her final year in school where she graduated in 1985.

Glenda resided in Naponee her whole life, until her health situation required her to be in and out of hospitals. Glenda resided in Alma, Nebraska at the Good Samaritan home for about a year to recover, then to Hastings, Nebraska to be close to her children.
Glenda loved to tell stories and making people laugh while drinking coffee with her French vanilla creamer. She enjoyed writing poems, playing in pitch tournaments, doing crossword puzzles, cooking, gardening and spending time with family and friends. She loved to watch Judge Judy every day, because she said she reminded her of her mother.
