Glenda “Glimpy” Diane Reid

4/27/1948 to 7/20/2021
Glenda was a very honest and sometimes too blunt of a person, who wore her heart on her sleeve. She always wanted to help others and bless them if she could even when she had little to give. She came from a hardworking family, growing up in Pensacola most of her life. She loved to dance and joke. You could always see her laughing. She befriended everyone that was blessed to have gotten to know her. She was very proud of her Native American heritage. She gave her heart to the Lord a few years ago and attended East Brent Baptist Church in Pensacola when she was able.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Bessie Josey; siblings, Beatrice & Edward Bass, Cecil and Faye Salter, Jeannette Hanks, L.D. Josey, Bill ‘Lil Boy’ Daniels, Louise & Randy Trawick, and Cecil Turnbull; daughters, Diane and Marti; grandson, Cody; nieces and nephews, Gayle Grissett and Chucky Davis.

Glenda was survived by her life partner, Doug Croll; sister-in-law, Peggy Turnbull; children, Perry, Stevie, and Kim; grandchildren, Candy and Michael; and several great-grandchildren whom she loved dearly.
She is also survived by very special nieces, Lisa, Sandy, Mandy, and Nette Jo; several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews close to her heart; and her beloved cat, Dudley.

Funeral services will be held at 11AM, Sunday, July 25, 2021 at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North. Visitation will begin at 10AM prior to services. Graveside Burial for family at Live Oak Cemetery on Bonifay, FL. In lieu of flowers, she asked for donations to be given to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at or call 888-557-7177.

Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and have strength of heart. Do not be afraid or shake with fear because of them. For the Lord your God is the One Who goes with you. He will be faithful to you. He will not leave you alone.”

    Fly high my friend. I will always thank you for the great times Janice,Gayle,Mary and myself spent with you at the Brick, Fiesta Lounge and Fox Landing. Every band played your signature dance “Elijah” where you always owned the stage. We were your gang and at least two of them is in heaven waiting to meet you. Your life was never easy and you were my role model for being resilient. Nothing broke you. I’ll see you all again and that band in heaven better be ready for us. Intil rest in peace and don’t get into too much trouble up there. Love always
