Glenda Joyce Ponds

 

Glenda Joyce Ponds was born October 16, 1958 in Hohenwald, TN the daughter of the late Taylor Edna Staggs and Gladys Marie Ray Staggs Sherrill.

She was united in marriage to Roy Wayne Ponds on November 21, 1987. Mr. Ponds preceded her in death on January 6, 2021.

She worked for many years as a certified nurse assistant and was dedicated to caring for each one like they were her family. She enjoyed going on vacation to the mountains, shopping, spending time with all her babies, and family gatherings. She had a love for NASCAR, followed Jeff Gordon and secretly always wanted a racecar! 

She was known by her family and close friends as master of slamming cabinet doors to relieve her frustrations. Her favorite time of the year was always Christmas time -she especially loved cooking and making her favorite candies while always wearing her fuzzy socks.
