She would spend the next 14 years, as the loving wife to a career military man, starting a family and becoming the supportive mother to Damon and Dena. In her dedication, she also ran the Non-Commissioned Officer’s wives club in Liephiem, Germany. When her soldier retired, they made their home in Crosbyton, Texas. She would then spend the next 18 years as an employee of the Crosbyton Clinic Hospital, and in her spare time as a booster for the local high school booster club. It was always a given that her voice would be the one heard on a Friday night. Later she would help her husband realize his dream of owning and operating a family drive in, Jordan’s Red Barn, also located in Crosbyton. She would take great pride in the home cooked meal she would serve to her family and friends in the community. In all that Glenda did nothing meant more to her than taking care of her family; being supportive in any and everyway possible. She took great pride in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
