Mrs. Glenda Ann (Morgan) Hairston of Molino passed away at her home in Molino in the early hours on April 29, 2016. She passed peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her husband George of 53 years, her daughters, and grandchildren.

Glenda was a devoted wife and homemaker. She loved to travel. She and George visited many of the 50 states. She had a sense of adventure and was always up for a challenge, including hang gliding and hot air ballooning. She had a contagious smile and an amazing sense of humor. She was a small package, with a big personality!

Glenda was everyone’s favorite aunt, cousin, and friend. She will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know and love her.

Glenda is survived by her loving husband George and their two daughters, Terra Reading and her husband, John, Vicki Holland and her husband James; five grandchildren, Emily Reading, Molly Reading Tingle, Savannah Holland Page, Joshua Holland, and Madeline Holland; two great-grandsons, Leo James Page, and Liam Warren Raggard; sister, Bennie Morgan Creel of South Dakota, brother Charles Morgan of Mississippi, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

    It was so great to know Glenda. She was a sweet friend and an inspiration to all of us who were in the graduating class of ‘61 from Tate High School. The memory of Glenda brings a smile to my face. Our prayers and thoughts are with all of her family and friends

    My classmate and friend….a large and warm, caring soul. Being around her in class or seeing her at other times during the day brought a big smile and something to be said. She came across as everbody’s friend. I last saw her two years ago at a THS alumni luncheon and so much enjoyed our time to visit together. It was so easy to smile when thinking of Glenda. I know she will be greatly missed. Those who knew her were blessed. My sincerest sympathy and heartfelt prayers are being sent to her family, church family, and friends as they mourn their tremendous loss, but rejoice with her in her new home above. May she always be remembered for the good person she was to all.

    So fortunate knowing this wonderful Lady and family for a few decades. She gave selflessly her love and friendship to so many in our small community of Molino. Glenda you will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of you calling them friend(s). Lord you gained another angel in the last several days. We all know she is safe & sound in your eternal presence. We will see you again Glenda…

    I’m so very sorry to learn of Glenda’s passing. I’ve known Glenda since the mid 50’s. We were in the same grades at Molino School and graduated together from Tate in ‘61. She was wonderful to be around and brought joy to all. A week ago another lady from Molino was in Dallas and the first person I asked about was Glenda.

    R.I.P. my dear friend. May God bless you and your friends and family.
