  1. So so sorry to hear of Glenda’s passing! She was a dear friend of Wes & mine and will be missed! Was a joy as I tried to keep her in the loop with Follett news
    She even watched some of our 6man football games and was full of questions about some of the players whose name she could identify with!
    We’re sending you all our thoughts & prayers❤️ Sue & Wesley Bourquin

  2. I am so sorry to hear this. Glenda was older than me, but I thought she was a fine lady. I always looked up to her. Loved her sense of humor. She loved her hometown and the people in it. My prayers are for the family and friends who loved her. God bless you all and may He give you His Comfort.

  3. Our hearts were saddened when we heard of Glenda’s passing. Glenda was a wonderful friend and teacher and we shared in wonderful memories of our children growing up together. Our love to Derek, Doug and your sisters. God’s blessings on your family.

  4. Glenda was one of a kind. I met her at while working at Target and just fell in love with her. I did have to gripe at her often to stay off the ladders in the backroom. I told her to call me and I would get her stuff down for her. She didn’t really like asking for help but I tried to watch her closely and if I saw her heading to the backroom I intercepted her. She kept the best bra and panty section in any Target I have ever seen. She always got 2 long johns for her break time. Not sure how she stayed so thin. She made me smile every day.

    She loved to correct my grammar. I always use prepositions at the end of my sentences. Obviously a no no to her. She was always teaching all of us.

    I don’t enjoy playing card games but she talked me into joining the Card Crew. She was gracious enough to host us at her house once a month for years. We played Hand and Foot and I actually started to enjoy it. I loved getting to see her monthly. She will be greatly missed.

    • So sorry for your family’s loss! Thinking and praying for you and your family during this difficult time.
