A celebration of Glenda’s life will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18, with her family and friends at the Buckinghorse Restaurant in Torrington. Memorials may be made to the family or to an organization of the donor’s choice.
Glenda was born Nov. 24, 1951, the daughter of Glen and Phyllis (Marlatt) Blunt. She attended school at Goshen Hole and Scottsbluff. Glenda married Larry “Ed” Barnes on Dec. 28, 1981.
She was an exceptional woman. A real tribute to Glenda was her grandchildren’s reference to her as the “Happy Grandma.” She was a faithful friend, loving wife and caring mother. Glenda was an accepting person who never had a bad word to say and never judged anyone. Glenda loved music of all kinds, with a special appreciation of Bluegrass music. She shared her love of music by playing with the Torrington Fiddlers. She collected antique knick knacks, which decorate her home. She cherished her animals, her friends and her family.
Survivors include her husband Ed of Torrington; three children, Donovan Bradshaw of Deadwood, S.D., Zee Bradshaw of Larchmont, N.Y. and Travis (Deana) Pond of Omaha, Neb.; four grandchildren, Hailey Bradshaw-Finch of Wisconsin and Nathan, Dylan and Rylie Pond of Omaha; sisters and brothers in law; nieces and nephews and many friends and loved ones.
Glenda was preceded in death by her parents; her grandparents Ray and Birdie Marlatt; her sister LeAnn Blunt and mother and father in law Larry and Laverene Barnes.
