Glenna Kay Wright

Friday, December 18, 2015

Glenna Kay Wright, 53, of Nevada, Mo., passed away Dec. 15, 2015, at Freeman West Hospital, in Joplin. She was born Oct. 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 brother, Chris Wright and wife, Chasitty, of Lamar, along with their children, Michael Danner, Victoria Wright, Johnathan Danner, Macy Danner, and McKenzie Wright; and brother, Tim Deeter and wife, Angie, of Forsyth, along with their children, Brianna, Christian, Karson, and Jacob; and Jeff Wright of Las Vegas, Nev. Glenna was preceded in death by her parents; grandmother, Gwen (Tiny) Kennedy; and brothers, Rodney Wright and Donald Wright.

Funeral services for Glenna Kay Wright are scheduled for 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 19, at Ferry Funeral Home, in Nevada, with interment to follow in the Antioch Cemetery, in Nevada. Visitation will be held from 1 to 2 p.m., just prior to the service, also at the funeral home.
