Preceded in death by husband Lt. Colonel Harry Stewart Glendenning, mother Mary Aneil, father Birl Rudolph Easterling, brothers Dick, Harvey, Billy Ray, LC, Tommy Easterling. Survived by Sister Barbara (Don) Smith, Sons Stewart (Diane), Don (Debbie), Bill, Chuck (Sharee) Glendenning, daughters Betsy (Darryl) Ulrich, Barbara Clark. 12 Grandchildren, 10 Great Grandchildren. Alice was born in Laurel Mississippi, where she sang and played the piano at 2nd Avenue Baptist Church. She was raised in a place and time where young ladies were taught to cook and be good hostesses. Alice was excellent at both. Family, friends, and strangers were always welcome in her home. She was a wonderful cook; breakfast casseroles, hearty southern meals, and the very best desserts blessed all who ate at her table. She always knew and prepared the favorite foods of whomever was with her. Alice enjoyed playing Keno, slot machines, loved to bowl, and loved being with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her swimming pool in Plano, Texas was a favorite family gathering place, at Christmas her house was beautifully decorated inside and out for the young and young at heart. She married Harry Glendenning, October 25th 1952. As the wife of a career Air Force officer, she bore children in Minnesota, Mississippi, Germany, and Nebraska, and helped the family adjust to cultural differences in Japan. Alice worked in the 70's at Brandeis and in the early 80"s at 7-11 (to spend time with Harry after he retired from the military). But for most of her adult life, she was a housewife and homemaker. She was often driving the family station wagon full of kids going to a baseball game or swim meet, and she was always in the stands to cheer on her children and grandchildren. Alice was diagnosed with dementia in 2010 and went to memory care assistance in 2012. Her latter years could not diminish her light of laughter and love. Alice was a strong woman, a good wife, mother, and friend. She had a wonderful smile and laugh that matched the sparkly bling clothes she loved to wear. We will all miss her. The world has lost an angel, heaven has gained one.
