Glenda was born November 2, 1940 in Wichita, KS to Harry and Edna Rupple. She was a 1958 graduate of Washburn Rural High School in Topeka, KS.  Glenda was a Roller-Dance skater in the 1950’s and met her husband, Denny, in 1956 when they became skating partners. On April 8, 1961, Glenda married Denny Denham in Topeka, KS. They moved to Shawnee, KS in 1968.  During her years as a member of First Baptist Church of Shawnee, Glenda became the celebrated cook who made fabulous homemade meals that fed 150 people every Wednesday evening.  Glenda was an avid crafter who loved to do projects with her grandchildren.  Glenda is perhaps best known for being a dear wife, mother, grandmother and friend who was always ready to listen to you, to encourage you and to pray for you.

Survivors include her husband of 62 years, Denny Denham; son, Doug Denham, Shawnee, KS; daughter, Sheri (Dan) Noot, Charlotte, NC; brother, Harry Rupple, Topeka, KS; and grandchildren, Makenzie Denham, Zoe Denham, Isaac Denham and Isabel Noot.
