Glenda Lynn Shults of Springfield, Ore. passed away on May 24, 2021 after a long illness. She was surrounded by family at her passing and is now at peace. She was married for over 26 years to her loving husband Daniel Lee Shults. Glenda was an adored mother, wife, sister, aunt, friend, grandmother and great-grandmother. She left a trail of wonderful memories with each and every person with whom she came in contact.
Glenda went to Sheldon High School in Eugene. She had a wide array of interests that included beading to make beautiful jewelry, music festivals, camping, going on cruises with her husband, and most of all just loving on her many grandchildren. She was involved with The Elks Lodge in Springfield along with her husband, where they have many friends that have grown to be family. Glenda also loved flowers and making arrangements that were colorful and that decorated her home. She was kind and a joy to be around. The world is a better place because of her. The people she loved are better for having loved her back. Glenda was the most accepting person; welcoming anyone with open arms and a warm hug. Knowing she is watching over us and has been given her wings should bring peace to those that loved her.
Between Dan and Glenda there were four children, Teresa Patterson, Corey Inness, Jenny Kettle and Jeremy Shults. Over the course of their marriage they also collected 11 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
