Obituary - Glenna Kay Wright

Glenna Kay Wright, age 53, of Nevada, MO passed away December 15, 2015 at Freeman West Hospital in Joplin. She was born October 27, 1962 in Nevada, the daughter of Louis Glenn and Sharon Kay (Mulkins) Wright.

Glenna attended school in Nevada, and then graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from Missouri Southern State University in Joplin. She lived most of her life in the Vernon county area with the exception of a period of about five years that was spent in New Orleans living near her brother. She worked in food service through her life at the 54 Café and Country Kitchen among others. When time allowed she enjoyed a good cold Coca-Cola, her dogs and cats, and was a loyal fan of the Kansas Chiefs. But her greatest love was the love that she had for her family.

Survivors include her brothers, Chris Wright and wife Chasity of Lamar along with their children, Michael Danner, Victoria Wright, Johnathon Danner, Macy Danner, and McKenzie Wright; Tim Deeter and wife Angie of Forsythe along with their children, Brieanna, Christian, Karson, and Jacob; and Jeff Wright of Las Vegas, NV.
