Glenda and I have been friends for many years. We began our friendship as teachers at Fredonia-Delaware Elementary School. She loved and understood her students and they loved and respected her. Glenda and I were both members of PASR. During the month of May each year we would visit shut-ins and those members in nursing homes to give them gifts from PASR. Glenda also enjoyed our Book Club and her participation enhanced our club meeting greatly. I have wonderful memories of bus trips taken with Glenda and Bill and also enjoying PASR picnics together. I will miss her infectious laugh and sharing conversations with her. May you rest in peace now, Glenda, in the arms of our loving Savior.

I offer my condolences to the family for Glenda who I work with and highly respected.
Our paths crossed for so many years and I wished I had taken the opportunity to know Glenda more.
We started at the Edinboro’s Off Campus Center at Hickory High School. We ended up working for the same school district and retired the same year.
I always thought of Glenda as a “real” teacher.
This world will miss her.

Dear Glenda,
So many memories- where to begin. We enjoyed the fun of night classes at Edinboro's off campus center at Hickory High School, where we met. Then we were off to main campus to complete our degrees in elementary education.
We both secured teaching positions, and both were married in 1968. We ended up living about four miles from each other for over 40 years.
Sharing so many of the same interests, including bird watching, we joined the Audubon Society. We took several great birdwatching trips together to the Delmarva Peninsula. Those trips were great fun that we shared with the Butler group. The meals and the card games were treasured experiences.
After retirement we joined PASR and held various offices. We worked hard to promote our organization. It was also important to serve as proctors for the NOCTI tests at the career center.
I moved to Greenville first and was thrilled when you bought your cottage at St. Paul's.
My friend, you were a big part of my life. I will be forever grateful for your friendship. Save me a seat at the table when we meet again.
My sincere condolences to all of Glenda's family. She loved you dearly and always looked forward to your gatherings. A special thank you to Janet for keeping me informed.
Love, Pat
