Glenda Gatlin

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.

Graveside service will be 10:00 am, Thursday July 29th, 2021 at Point Enterprise Cemetery with Rev. Marcus Sheffield officiating.

Special thanks to Dr. Anil Veluvolu, Dr. Michael Banda and The Carpenter House.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the First Baptist Church of Pt. Enterprise.
