Glodeen Jennings, 86 of Springfield, passed away at Mercy Hospital on March 29, 2024, after a short illness.

Glodeen left her job at Zenith to begin an illustrious career at Southwest Missouri State University, serving as an administrative assistant in the Psychology Department.

She is survived by her only child, Tamara “Tammy” Rentchler and her husband, Mike; three grandsons, and others.

A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, April 3, 2024, 11:00 am, in Greenlawn Memorial Gardens (Section C Lot 67 Grave 6).

The family has asked attendees to wear casual clothes and, if possible, something purple—Glodeen’s favorite color.

In lieu of flowers or plants, the family has requested that donations be made in Glodeen’s memory to the Southwest Missouri Humane Society or the Springfield-Greene County Library.
