In memory of Glenda C. Younger, 81 of Hurricane, West Virginia. This memorial obituary is written in honor of our mother by her children who loved her dearly. Mom moved to Heaven on July 13, 2021.
Mom was born on February 7, 1940 to Carl Scott Coffman and Dorothy Bowen in Lenore, West Virginia.
Mom was a school bus driver for Putnam County Schools for 30 + years. She retired in 2014. Before she moved back to West Virginia, she was a school bus driver for Anne Arundel County schools in Maryland.
Mom had a natural tendency for acts of service. She was a helper at her church, many times baking cookies for others. She was a caregiver for two friends and her own mother for the last ten years of her mother’s life.
Mom loved to do holidays big. She had decorations and place settings for every holiday and season. She greatly enjoyed decking out her house and the table for her family. We could always count on a joyous time together as a family. She made the holidays special. We can just see her now, in Heaven, having beautiful place settings at her table every week.
Mom also enjoyed photography, gardening, sewing, quilting and ceramics. The flowers in her yard were always beautiful. We will have many wonderful memories of her by looking at her photographs and ceramics that will now be cherished in our houses.
Mom was a born-again Christian and loved Jesus. We are certain to have one wonderful joyful reunion when we all get to Heaven.
We will miss her greatly.
Mom was a great mother and godly influence for all her children. She molded us into who we are today. Family came first and Mom loved her kids and grandkids.
During the last few years of Mom’s life, there were people who made a difference by being there for her when her mobility prevented her from living alone. Her daughter, Sherry, lived with her for the last 2 ½ years. Debbie Welch became a trusted caregiver and companion to Mom. Reverend Stephanie Pack came to minister to Mom many times.
Mom is survived by daughter Sherry and her husband Ken Wilkins. Son Gregory and his wife Karen, their children Casey (Albert), Andrew, Abigail, and Jarod. Son Ronald P. Younger, II and his wife Renee, their children Kristin (Jared), Sophia and Zachary. Great grandchildren are Tyler Ireland, Jordan Ireland, Jared C. Reedy, and Jacie Reedy.
Mom was predeceased by her father Carl Coffman, her mother Dorothy Coffman, brothers Damon Coffman and Scotty Coffman. We know they are all in Heaven having a big ‘ole time.
Visitation will be held at the Allen Funeral Home in Hurricane, WV on July 17, 2021, at 10:00 am, with the memorial service immediately following. Burial will be the Gill Cemetery in Salt Rock, WV. The family plans to have a celebration of life at her home in Hurricane following the graveside services.
