On Friday, Aug. 16, 2019, Glenda Sue Gross, loving wife, mother of three children, and grandmother of four children, passed away at the age of 68 in Jacksonville, Fla., after a heart attack. Glenda was born March 27, 1951, in Blytheville, Ark., to Floyd and Gertrude (Martin) Ash.

Glenda was preceded in death by her father and mother; her son, Floyd; and six of her siblings, Roy, Troy, Willard, Alvin, Pat, and Alice.

Glenda had a multi-faceted career, with a multitude of diverse jobs. Her jobs are what she did for a living, but what she lived for was her kids and grandkids. She is well known as the best maker of fried chicken and peanut butter cake, and was already ready with a hug and kind word for anyone who needed it.
