Glenda Joy Evans

October 12, 1934 — March 12, 2024

Glenda Joy Evans (née Anderson) passed away on March 12, 2024, at the age of 89 in South Jordan, Utah. Glenda was born on October 12, 1934, in Spring Glen, Utah, to Leo and Winona Haycock Anderson.

Glenda dedicated over 50 years to a fulfilling nursing career after graduating first from St Marks’ Nursing School and then from the University of Utah School of Nursing. Glenda also taught nursing for 17 years at Salt Lake Community College. Her compassion and love for caring for others were evident throughout her profession.

A faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Glenda found solace and community in her worship. She was known for her unwavering devotion to her faith, her neighbors, and her community.

In her personal life, Glenda was a loving wife to the late Donald H. Evans, who she married in the Salt Lake temple in 1957. She was a devoted mother to Christy Warrington, Aaron Evans, Glen Evans, and Alisa Seeberger. Glenda is survived by her sister Leah Olsen, fourteen grandchildren, and twenty great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her father Leo Anderson, mother Winona Haycock Anderson, daughter Cheri Anderson, and great-grandson Boston.

Glenda's interests were varied from water-coloring to gardening, spending time in the temple and in finding joy in the simplest act of doing laundry. Her dedication to her family, neighbors, and church defined her character, making her a cherished life-long member of her community.
