Glenda May Ramsey, 84, of Orlando, Florida, passed away peacefully on January 11, 2021. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, on November 23, 1936, to Jesse W. Gash and Ella May (Cox) Gash, she is survived by her two sons, Dennis (Debbie) Scott Long, of Des Moines, Iowa, Donald (Lora) Stephen Long, of Ardmore, Alabama and her three daughters, Terra (Kevin) Jeanne Laughlin, of Christmas, Florida, Lois Ann Sparkman, of Orlando, Florida and Cheryl Diane White, of Orlando, Florida. She also is survived by 12 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Glenda graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1991 with a Bachelor’s degree in English, completing her degree while she worked for the City of El Paso, Texas, Parks and Recreation Department. She retired in 1999 from the City of El Paso after 15 years of service, and moved back to Florida to be with her children. It wasn’t until her “retirement” that she began to do what she truly loved doing which was working as an English Tutor, first at Brevard College and later at Valencia College. She continued working until she was 83. She loved literature, and taking care of her plants. She also enjoyed decorating for Christmas, her Hummel collection, classical music, and enjoyed watching Murder She Wrote and Judge Judy. She was small in stature but was great in spirit. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Due to Covid restrictions the Celebration of Life ceremony will be announced at a later date.
