 Throughout her illness, she never stopped being the smart and loving person we all knew and cherished.  Glenda's smile would brighten anyone's day no matter the situation. She had a way of making us all feel special.  With Glenda, you were in the presence of true, unconditional love.  Her kindness will be remembered by all who were lucky enough to have known her. Glenda loved to read, work in the yard, vacation with her family, and spend time with her husband.  She took great pride in her family and enjoyed attending graduations, the births of her grandchildren, weddings, and family reunions.  Glenda had five siblings that she adored throughout her life.  She enjoyed school and graduated from West Hopkins High School in 1968 where she was a cheerleader, class secretary and voted "Best Personality".
  
  As a young woman, Glenda experienced "love at first sight" when she met Terry Holt.  The two were high school sweethearts and married on December 17, 1967. Terry enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1968.  Glenda bravely traveled with him and had their first daughter in 1969.  Glenda was an amazing homemaker.  Over the years, the two had three more daughters.  Glenda and Terry built a life together and set an example of true love for 56 years.
