Memories Timeline


  1. My fondest memory is of a time Glenda came to work with us at Bayview Nursing and Rehab in New Bern and she stayed until late in the night to help us fix some coding issues. We shared many laughs that night and I was so amazed by her intelligence and her genuine passion for her work. She will be greatly missed.

  2. Now you are resting in our “Father’s” arms. Such a peace beyond our understanding, I am sure.
    Rest in peace for all eternity. You will be missed.
    Your, Century Care [Haymount Rehabilitation & Nursing Center]

  3. Glenda will always hold a special place in my heart. She was an expert in what she did and always made others feel she was there for them. She will truly be missed by many but we know she is with Alan again to be forever happy and pain free.

  4. Glenda will forever hold a special place in my heart. She always made sure I had the tools I needed to succeed. Glenda was always kind and had a calming, giving spirit. She always took the time to teach and share her abundance of knowledge to anyone that was open to receiving. She was not only an expert at her job but top notch as a friend and just a good human being. Glenda you’re in a beautiful place now, no more pain and with Alan the love of your life and that alone will give us all peace in the mist of our sorrow. Love you forever Glenda
