Glenda Carol Williams

September 22, 1943 / June 16, 2002

Glenda C. Williams, 58, a resident of Tucson Arizona, passed away Sunday, June 16th, 2002. She spent her last days in the company of her family, and spent her last moment here on earth with her children. Born Glenda C. Nelson in Spokane Washington, September 22nd, 1943, she moved to the Tri-Cities in 1945 where she lived most of her life. Glenda moved to Tucson two and a half years ago to live with her daughter and grandchildren.

Though Glenda did work outside of the home, she always felt her most important job was that of being a mother and homemaker. She focused all of her energies on being a great mother, daughter, sister and grandmother. Glenda worked for the OIC/CETA organization in the nineteen seventies. During her employment there she worked diligently to help others obtain education, employment, and life opportunities. She was committed to helping others, which she continued to do throughout her life.

A life long woman of faith and devoted Christian, she was an active member of the Catalina United Methodist Church of Tucson, and was a member of the United Methodist Women’s Circle.

Her beloved father, Glen Nelson, preceded Glenda in death in March of 1977. She is survived by her mother, Elsie Nelson, brother, Gary Nelson and wife, Mary, sister, Laurel Peak and husband, Charles, children Sonnie Poureetezadi and wife, Sugeily, Shah Poureetezadi and wife, Katherine, Samone Poureetezadi and wife, Tonya, Heather Nelson and husband Mark, Roddy Williams and wife Cindy, seventeen grandchildren, a niece, two nephews, two great nephews, numerous cousins and many special friends.

Glenda was a caring and compassionate person who will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Comfort can be gained in knowing that she is now in the hands of God.

A viewing will be held Thursday, June 20th, from 3 to 8 p.m at Einan’s Funeral Home. Graveside services will be held Friday, June 21st, at 11:00 a.m. at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

Donations may be made on her behalf to the Make A Wish Foundation or the American Cancer Society.

  • I HAVE A LITTLE VERSE THAT MAY HELP YOU IN YOUR TIME OF SORROW.

    THE WEAVER

    MY LIFE IS BUT A WEAVING

    BETWEEN MY LORD AND ME

    I CANNOT CHOOSE THE COLORS

    HE WORKETH STEADILY

    SOMETIMES HE WEAVETH SORROW

    AND I IN FOOLISH PRIDE

    FORGET HE SEES THE UPPER

    AND I THE UNDERSIDE

    NOT TILL THE LOOM IS SILENT

    AND THE SHUTTLES CEASE TO FLY

    SHALL GOD UNROLL THE CANVAS

    AND EXPLAIN THE REASONS WHY

    THE DARK THREADS ARE AS NEEDFUL

    IN THE WEAVERS SKILLFUL HANDS

    AS THE THREADS OF GOLD AND SILVER

    IN THE PATTERN HE HAS PLANNED

    I AM SO SORRY AND SAD TO HEAR ABOUT GLENDA. SHE WAS A DEAR FRIEND. I CARED SO MUCH FOR HER. SHE WILL BE MISSED BY ALL OF THOSE WHO LOVED HER.

    AS ALWAYS JUDY
