Glenda worked for Lowes Home Improvement store in customer service but enjoyed the days when she could work in the garden center.

She loved taking trips to the beach with her family, was devoted to her family and enjoyed spending time with them. Her children and grandchildren remember her as being the best soccer mom who always cheered for them from the stands or defended their play from referee. Her smile, fierce personality and companionship will be missed by all.

Left to cherish her memory are her devoted husband of 48 years, Jason Arnold Riddle; daughters, Crystal Hazelbaker and husband Troy and Nicole Moore and husband Larry; brother, Lawrence Johnson; sister, Ernestine Harris (Tommy); grandchildren, Stephen Harris, Christian Harris and Makayla Moore; seven step grandchildren; twenty-one great grandchildren; canine companions, Rose and Chloe; and numerous other loving family and friends.
