Glenda, affectionately called “DeeDee,” daughter of Verna Diggs, was born Monday, May 18, 1964, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
A graduate of Harrisburg High School, Glenda’s career path included positions with Penn National Insurance Company, Metro Teleconnected and, lastly, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Revenue, as an Examiner.
Glenda accepted Christ as her personal Savior at an early age being baptized at Second Baptist Church, Harrisburg.
She loved and enjoyed her children who were the “light-of-her-life.” People who knew her always commented how she kept her “hair tight.” When she smiled, her entire face beamed. Glenda enjoyed listening to gospel music, shopping, supporting her Philadelphia Eagles and, most of all, eating good food.
