Glenda was born on Saturday, November 23, 1935 in Griffin, GA to the late Glenn and Agnes Smith.  She retired from CB&T where she was employed as a Wire Room Supervisor.  Throughout her life, Glenda enjoyed spreading happiness to the people around her.  The delicious meals she cooked and the beautiful gardens she grew were reflections of a creative and loving woman whose heart was warmed when she saw the smiles they produced.  For a while, she also sold Mary Kay cosmetics.  Glenda was a devout Catholic and a faithful member of Holy Family Church. 

Other than her parents, Glenda is preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband, John William Crawford, Sr.; son, Alan Stuart Crawford; and sister, Rilla Arrington.

Survivors include her daughters, Cynthia Crawford and Faye Crawford, both of Columbus, GA; and son, John Crawford, Jr. of Sugar Hill, GA. 

The family would like to extend their most sincere thanks to Marian Williams for the genuine love and special friendship she gave to their mother.
