Glenda was born July 20, 1938, the daughter of Glenn & Clarice (Kay) Hansen in Glendale, CA. She would gleefully tell you she was born at the Glendale Sanitarium AKA the Glendale Adventist Medical Center. She graduated from Red Oak high school in Red Oak, IA. While in school she was a sales clerk at Woolworth's and a car hop at the A&W Root Beer stand. In 1956 she moved to Mason City, IA and worked at Damon's department store and then Davidson's furniture. In 1963 she moved to Davis, CA and worked at the University of CA. In 1967 she moved back to Mason City, IA, married her husband of nearly 50 years Dennis Hildman and spent the next 14 years exclusively caring for her family. In 1981 she went to work at the Globe Gazette where she worked for 10 years until she retired. Glenda enjoyed dancing, musicals, reading, crossword puzzles, genealogy, coffee and bananas. She had a very strong sense of family and razor sharp wit. She will be missed.
Glenda was preceded in death by her parents Glenn and Clarice (Kay) Hansen and husband Denny.
She is survived by her sister-in-law Ruth; children and grandchildren; Phil & Tanya Hildman and their children Cody, Noah and Sara; Tony & Jean Hildman and their daughter Carrie; Sara Hildman; Mitch Hildman and his daughter Hadass; Jessica & Diane Hildman-Ubben and their children Walker and Justyce.
