Glenda Ann Beal Sharp, age 74, of Caledonia, MI, went home to be with her Lord on Sunday, July 19, 2020.  Glenda was a faithful follower of Jesus and someone who always considered others first and provided for so many people. She ministered to others through her church in running meal programs and coordinating events. Glenda cared for aging family members by having them live in her home for 18 years, father-in-law, William F. Sharp and Aunt, Katherine Viar. She also worked in a long telecommunications career with South Central Bell, BellSouth, AT&T, Lucent Technologies, and Avaya. She loved the gulf coast of the Florida panhandle and made sure to get there yearly for extended periods of time. A loving friend, wife, mother, and nana, Glenda will be deeply missed by her husband, Charles "Chuck" Dean Sharp, son, Charles Bennett "Benny" Sharp (and wife Sarina); grandchildren, Sophia Ann (5), Karis Evelyn (2), a future baby Sharp due in January; siblings, Pam Vacca, Denise Hairr, David Roe, Gene Roe, Jay Beal, Jaimie Russell; nieces and nephews; as well as many close friends and family. A 30 year cancer survivor who contributed much of her time and resources to the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life fundraiser, please consider donating to this cause in honor of Glenda
The family will greet visitors on Friday, July 24, from 6 - 8 pm at Stroo Funeral Home in Grand Rapids. The funeral service will be held at 11 am on Saturday, July 25, at Alaska Baptist Church, 7240 68th St. SE, Caledonia, MI 49316, with Rev. Brian Harrison officiating. There will be visitation prior to the service from 10 - 10:45 am at the church.

We're so sorry to hear about the loss of sweet Ms. Glenda. We went to church with her at Beech Springs and she remained in touch with us even after we left. Prayers and love sent to Mr. Chuck and Benny.
