Glenda J. Seymour was welcomed into her Heavenly Home on Thursday, April 26th, 2018, at Age 81 with her loved ones at her side. Glenda lived with MDS in her last 12 years and her strong Faith in God was present in both her words and actions to all the lives she touched. She was born May 23, 1936, in De Soto, Wisconsin to Iona (Hickok) and Richard Seymour. Glenda was the eldest of six children. Glenda graduated De Soto High School in 1954 and enlisted in the United States Air Force. Glenda moved to San Diego, California and pursued her career in the construction industry, where she became the 1st female drywall contractor and a founding member of the "National Association of Women in Construction." Glenda had many hobbies and passions in life which included hunting, fishing, golfing, playing cards, and lots of traveling. Her many talents overflowed into wood-crafting, painting, and a green thumb in her gardens. Glenda retired to her beloved home state of Wisconsin in her later years. Glenda passed away at David & Toni's home in Stoddard. She was blessed to have her nieces Tiffany & Laurie, her husband Bobby, and nephew Will to help with her care in her final days with the support of Gundersen Lutheran Hospice. Glenda was committed to her family and always placed their needs before her own. Glenda was a member of Hamburg Lutheran Church in her later years and was always true to her Faith.
Glenda is survived by her Sister Toni (David) Felde, Brothers Conrad (Sharon), and Douglas Seymour. She was blessed to have had many nieces and nephews of whom she was so devoted.
