She was born on October 9, 1943 to the late Noble and Minnie Petty, owners of Petty Service Station in Vernon. Glenda had a God given talent for music and began playing piano and organ for her church at age 14. She loved music and nurtured her children’s love of it. Many nights were spent singing around the piano with her children. On occasion, she would bring out her accordion, playing songs like “The Wildwood Flower”. She was a member of Peace Lutheran Church where she was pianist and organist for 3o years. She was often asked to provide piano music for funerals and was always happy to provide that service for people in their time of need.

The band also performed weekly for the residents of Wood Nursing Home, where she was cosmetologist for many years before opening her own shop. She also owned and operated a small business called the Perfume Room. She had a soft heart for animals, was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She will be dearly missed. She is preceded in death by her husband, Clarance Schwarz, and one infant son, Carey Davis. She is survived by two daughters, Melody Petty and husband Samuel, of Holly Lake Ranch and Melissa Mount and husband Dane, from Marble Falls, Texas. 4 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.
