Our loss...Heaven's gain...

Glenda Karen (Austin) Ross was born at Sierra Hospital in Fresno, CA July 21, 1959. She passed away peacefully January 18, 2018 at her home near Prather, CA. Glenda grew up on the family ranch where she developed a
passion for horses, livestock, and the western way of life. Growing up she was an active member of Table Mountain 4-H club. In high school Glenda was an active member of Sierra FFA where she showed livestock and won Grand
Champion steer at the Big Fresno Fair in 1975. In her time at Sierra High She participated in Mothers Day Rodeos, Parliamentary Procedure, and played
on the girl’s basket ball team. Upon graduation from Sierra High School in 1977 Glenda attended Reedley College majoring in Animal Sciences, then Lyles College of Beauty. Glenda worked in the cosmetology field throughout
her adult life, spending 10 years at Carrington Point Retirement facility. 
Glenda met her husband, Joel at the Clovis Rodeo Dance. They married May
21, 1983. They spent summers of their younger years together at High Sierra Pack Station, where Glenda learned to pack. She then became a Team member
of the High Sierra Girls Pack team and competed at Bishop Mule Days. Glenda and Joel became members of the Clovis Rodeo Association. They both enjoyed
helping to put on the Clovis Rodeo and being a part of such a fun event that brought them together. As Joel was always an avid Harley rider, Glenda enjoyed the life on the road with her partner Joel journeying many, many
miles exploring different parts of the United States on the back of a motorcycle. This led her to being a member of the ABATE #24 chapter for the last 6 years.

Glenda is survived by her husband of 34 years, Joel Ross, sons John Ross and Kalen (Taylor) and granddaughter Austin Ross, parents Janice and Wes Austin, brothers, Loren (Denise) Austin and Rick (Kay) Austin.  She will be
remembered as a warm, giving woman who left us far too early -- forever in
our hearts.

A Celebration of life service will be held on February 10 at 2:00 pm. at Charlie and Tami Maxwell’s Ranch, 10925 Rusty Spur Lane, Clovis, CA 93619.
