Glenda was one of the smartest and nicest people in my world when I attended school at Trafalgar, IN. She will always be remembered with respect and admiration when I think of our years of attending school with THS 61. Barbara McNamara and I extend condolences to Richard Clark and he and Glenda's family.

So sorry to learn of Glenda's passing. Such a quite sweet lady, although I didn't know her personally. She and Richard, and Lisa and Ed and dear Alma was such a Blessing to our Aunt Bea . Not having a cure for Alzheimer's yet. The cure came to Glenda in the form of our Father when He whispered in her ear and extended His Hand,,,, and said. " Come Home."

To the family of Glenda Clark, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. I knew her as I was a salesman that called on the funeral home for years with Ethel Maid burial garments. I always looked forward to her visit to the Indiana Funeral Directors Convention with Bill. May God bless and comfort you in your loss and may your cherished memories bring a source of peace. Sincere Sympathy, Chuck Agugliaro
