Known to many as “Other Mama”, Glenna always had interesting and varied job experiences beginning as a page for MGM Studios as a high school graduate where she met and knew such stars as Judy Garland and her teen idol, Frank Sinatra. In addition to her full-time job as Homemaker, she worked for the Country Music Association, the American Cancer Society, and the Vanderbilt University Department of Psychology. She and her husband Ken were active and starred in numerous productions for Theatre Nashville as well. In her later years she was a dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer at Saint Mathew School.
