Himes, Glenda Violet, 87, of Lutz, passed away December 21, 2020. She was born on October 22, 1933, in Wauchula, FL, where she lived with her family until later moving to Tampa.
She was predeceased by her parents, Charles Edward Jacobs and Addie Lorena Austin McIntyre, and eleven siblings.
Glenda loved spending time with her family, traveling and working in her flower gardens. If she wasn’t playing a game or playing a song on the piano, at a family birthday, school event, wedding, or holiday gathering, she was traveling to one of the forty nine states that she visited over the years. She stepped foot in all states except Hawaii as well as several countries outside of the US. She enjoyed maintaining her many varieties of flowers and plants at her home in Lutz while accompanied by her two dogs, Harry and Harley.
She was very active in her church and a member of the choir. Attending art class with Jane and other friends was always a fun time.
Glenda is survived by her four sons, Tim (Vivian), Carl (Diana), Allan (Barbara), and Kelly; grandchildren Josh (Emma), Katie (Sean), Justin (Sara), Christopher, Joey, Charlie, Michael, Jake (Victoria), Hunter, Sierra, Stephanie and Katie; great-grandchildren Logan, Olivia, Luke, Liliana, Sophia, Kennedy, Madilaina, Madison, Cambria, Caelan, Kalijah and Liam; and many nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed, but forever in our hearts.
A memorial service will be held, May 1, 2021, from 11-12 at Lutz Community Church in Lutz, FL with visitation at 10. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s research organization, curealz.org, or an organization of your choice.
A private graveside service will be held by the family at Hart Cemetery in Wauchula, FL, where she will be laid to rest with her mother.
