Glenda was born February 24, 1956 in Carrollton TX to Bolen G. Crawford and Shirley Wigley Crawford.
Glenda was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Throughout her life, she worked tirelessly in all of her pursuits in the body of Christ--teaching in the church, coaching Bible Bowl, writing curriculum. At Holly Frontier, she worked many years as an accountant, as well as supporting her husband and his practice at Artesia Animal Clinic in a similar role. She had an uncompromising passion for Old Testament studies and the beauty of God's encompassing plan of Salvation. She diligently taught her children about the Truth, and lived her life in a Godly manner--not remaining stagnant in her faith, but ever growing deeper in her relationship with Jesus Christ. Glenda exemplified the wife of Proverbs 31 and strove to love God with her whole being. She loved music and was known for her beautiful alto voice.
Throughout the affliction of the disease that took her life so quickly from us, she maintained a noble outlook and a sweet spirit, never wavering in her solid faith. She passed peacefully from this life, holding her husband's hand.
She was preceded in death by her father, and by a brother Michael John Crawford.
Survivors include her husband Lawrence Dale Young; sons Travis Glen Young and Jonathan Garrett Young, both of Artesia; a daughter Laura June and husband Mark Williams of Artesia; mother Shirley Crawford of Artesia; a sister Marcia Daw of Carrolton, Texas; grandchildren Hannah Grace, Jonah Markus, and Micah June, as well as many nieces and nephews. She leaves behind many extended family members and dear beloved friends
