Our “Ran” Glenda Jeanette Gatlin, of Mexia, Texas passed away Saturday July 24th, 2021.
Glenda married Jay Presley Gatlin on December 23rd, 1959. She enjoyed being a military wife and wonderful mother to their two sons Jim and John.
If you knew Glenda, you knew her passion in life was her family. She and Jay spent a lifetime supporting their sons’ many athletic events and coaching careers. They later loved attending their four grandchildren’s many activities.
As a family, we have had the honor and blessing of knowing her as a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. Glenda made the world a better place where she touched so many and her laughter and positive attitude was infectious. She was also a longtime active member of the First Baptist Church of Pt. Enterprise.
She was preceded in death by her parents Ford and Ruth Vardeman and brother- in-law Bobby Fife. She will be cherished and forever remembered by her husband of 61 years, Jay P. Gatlin, sons: Jim and Donna Gatlin, John and Tanya Gatlin. 4 grandchildren: Jordan Gatlin, Morgan and Matthew Sewell, Amber and Jace Gatlin. Sister Dolly Fife, nephew and niece Joe Bob Fife and Shelli Decker and their families.
