  • Glenda held a special place in so many hearts … she will be missed deeply. Having lived one’s life to the fullest is one of the greatest accomplishments ever and Glenda took on that idea as her mantra … always telling me that she would never pass away curious! 🙂 Glenda was more than a business partner, co-worker, and friend … she was family!

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Glenda and Bob through decades of exciting times.
    Glenda had numerous outstanding qualities, but foremost among them was her ever present sense of humor. The more intense the pressure, the greater was Glenda’s ability to soften the moment with a smile, a quick witty remark, or her timing.
    There was absolutely no better cure, than to walk down a hall, or into a conference room, and hear Glenda’s laugh. I never knew her to miss a deadline, or an assignment.
    Glenda simply made every work-day enjoyable.
    I will miss my friend.

  • The Allen’s were neighbors for a time when I lived in Richland and we were at Col-Hi together. I fondly remember Glenda and her youthful enthusiasm.

  • I knew Glenda for more than 30 years, and I appreciated her each and everyday that we spent time together, either as part of the workday or with common friends at social events. She was a great lady; she was kind and considerate; and I will miss her along with many others. God needed a good person.
