Glenda enjoyed the things that make us smile. First blooms of spring, the surprise of an overnight snowfall, the smell of fresh linen, sightings of baby birds, VW Bugs and of course, Elvis. Her infectious caring of all creatures great and small made her a wonderful example of life’s goodness.
Glenda grew up in Missoula, Montana and graduated from Sentinel High School. She worked at Westmont Tractor and after marrying Jerry, her husband of 50 years, moved to Washington state. With Jerrys’ two Daughters, Michele and Ardyth, and her son Bradley, they spent years enjoying the great northwest. After retiring from a career with the Department of Labor & Industries she and Jerry moved back to Montana, to the small town of Alberton. There they enjoyed the friendships of many and were an active part of the community.
Glenda was preceded in death by her parents Carl and Lois Sorensen, husband, Jerry Phillips, Niece, Tracy Sorensen and granddaughter, Lyndsey Lason. She is survived by her brothers; Gary (Hazel) of Missoula, MT, Walter (Gina) of Springfield, OR. Wesley (Dianna) of Three Forks, MT, Son, Bradley (Donna) of Mill Creek, WA, Step-daughters, Michele of Everett, WA and Ardyth of Rigby, ID. Grandkids, Jennifer, Joshua, Jenny, Stacy, Skyler, Jillian, Josiah, and great grandkids, Lowen, Liam, Laynz, Eugene, Kaylin, Avery, and Nova.
The Family would like to give a sincere thank you to the Partners Hospice Team and Garden City Funeral Home for their kindness and devotion to duty.
