Glenda Thomas Shuttlesworth

Profile Updated: June 14, 2019
Residing In: Coldspring, TX USA
Spouse/Partner: J. R.
Occupation: Retired from pharmaceutical sales
Children: Robert E. Shuttlesworth, born 1974
Dana Michele Shuttlesworth Johnson, born 1977

I have seven grandchildren. Halden Johnson born 2005; Elise Shuttlesworth, born 2006; Lillian Johnson, born 2007 and Adelyn Johnson born 2008. Robert recently married for a second time to Stephanie Schonherz. I acquired two more grandchildren, Matthew and Lauren who are now 10 years old. Elise, Matthew, and Lauren are now siblings to Harrison Robert Shuttlesworth born February 3, 2015. I included a picture of my newest grandson.

After high school graduation, I attended and graduated from TCU with a degree in Medical Technology in 1969.

J. R. and I married on 1-9-1971. When we married, I was working as an ASCP medical technologist at John Peter Smith Hospital in Ft. Worth.

We moved to San Antonio in 1978 and I started my career as a pharmaceutical salesperson with Lederle. Lederle folded their oncology sales force into Immunex when they purchased them in 1993 and I became an employee of Immunex. In 2002, Immunex was purchased by Amgen and I retired.

Since my retirement, I have often wondered how I ever had time to work. In 2005, we purchased a home on Lake Livingston and moved to the lake. I have taken up golf, more shopping, renewed my interest in oil painting, and become president of the civic association.

From time to time, I get to keep my grandchildren and love every minute. We live close enough to Houston to enjoy their activities and get to visit them often.

This summer, we left Coldspring with four of the grandchildren to visit Yellowstone National Park. I must say, with 7,6,5,3 year old children, we were totally worn out by the time we reached our destination and could hand them over to their parents. We explored Carlsbad Caverns and Mesa Verde along the way. Our family toured Yellowstone for four days before we all took off in different directions. Robert and Elise returned to Houston since his wedding was in three weeks. Dana and Jon plus their three left for Mt. Rushmore. J.R. and I started back and returned two weeks later. It was a wonderful trip. We had taken Robert and Dana to Yellowstone as children probably 1983. The park had really changed since that time.

Apology accepted. I signed my last name because of Suzanne. I didn't want her to be upset that I sent you a card. I agonized about how to sign it. I wanted you to know that I always appreciated your parents. I am glad you decided to come to our reunion. You look very much the same as you did in high school. I hope your mom is doing OK. Mine is now 91 tuning 92 this November. It has been raining here all day. We have had 8.5 inches of rain since midnight. We also had several inches yesterday. It looks like Memorial plans will be cancelled. I can take this holiday to tell you I appreciate your service to our country.

Rick, I had sent you an email earlier but since, I haven't heard back from you. I thought I would try again. I think you said you could send me digital copies of the South Marshall photos. I would love to have them since I don't have any of them except Miss Bagett. It seemed like we were usually in the same room. I am glad you are enjoying Florida and yet you made it to our reunion. It was good to see you. Thanks, glenda
