Glenda Sue Shepherd
San Antonio, TX - Glenda Sue Shepherd, 79, born in Guthrie, Oklahoma, lost her fierce battle with cancer with her family at her side on February 10, 2021. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Jerry, and their 3 children, Jana Anderson, Leigh Ann Sem and Jeff Shepherd, their spouses and 4 grandchildren. Glenda and Jerry met in high school in Altus, Oklahoma and were married in 1959. They settled and raised their family in Norman, Oklahoma. Glenda was a longtime employee of Don Cies Real Estate, where she formed lifelong friendships. Upon becoming empty nesters, Glenda and Jerry moved to Dallas and met their good friends and travel companions, Jan and Frank Starr. During retirement, they traveled extensively, eventually landing in the San Antonio area. Glenda enjoyed gardening, reading, crafts and house renovations. She was a devoted and loving Nana to her 4 grandkids (Caroline, Sophia, Cooper and David), a faithful Catholic, an incredible seamstress and a wine enthusiast. Glenda is preceded in death by her beloved brother, Marine veteran, Harold Hoover of Bellevue, Idaho. She is also survived and greatly loved by two brothers, Ron Hoover of Columbus Ohio, and Steve Hoover of Muskogee, Oklahoma, and sister, Kim Hoover of Los Angeles, CA. Her family and friends will miss her generous and loving support, quirky pranks and her unique sense of humor. The family will hold a celebration of her life later in the year. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in her name to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
