Glenda was born on September 14, 1938 to Elwood Kennedy and wife, Margaret (Evans) Kennedy. She received her High School diploma from Galena Park High School in 1957.

They had three children, Suzanne and husband, Beto Carranza of Atascosita, TX, Catherine and husband, Stan Ackerman of Houston, TX, and Richard Heeth, Jr. and wife, Tammie of Livingston, TX. Glenda was a proud homemaker and doted on her children, always. In 1982, she and husband, Richard, upon retirement from his many businesses, one being a Pawn Shop, moved to Livingston, TX to relax and fish. In June of 1983, her husband, Richard grew bored with retirement and opened another Richard’s Pawn Shop in Downtown Livingston.

Glenda was an active member and organist at Peace United Presbyterian Church in Jacinto City, TX until she and Richard retired to Livingston in 1982. Glenda had a passion for sports, especially for her Houston Astros. In High School, she lettered in the high jump and developed a lifelong passion for volleyball. For 40 years she played volleyball with friends and family every week at the Jacinto City Gym. She was very artistic and musically inclined. She loved playing the organ for her family and church family. She also enjoyed playing board games, especially Rummikub and Scrabble with her siblings. She loved nature and enjoyed feeding the many birds and squirrels in her yard. She even fed a feral cat for five years and was very sad when it stopped showing up.
