In Memory of Glenda Powdrill
This morning, we received tragic news that Myron's sister, Glenda Powdrill, died in a one-car accident last night.
According to The News-Star, Glenda sustained fatal injuries when the SUV she was driving overturned on New Natchitoches Road in West Monroe, La.
The car crashed just before midnight while she was reportedly traveling westbound on Louisiana 838 (New Natchitoches Road) in a 2003 GMC Envoy when the vehicle traveled off the right side of the road, the report said.
Glenda apparently overcorrected, then overturned. The release also stated she was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
Alcohol use is not suspected to be a factor.
Myron and his other two sisters are with his parents in Louisiana, waiting for the body to be returned from autopsy later tonight. Arrangements will be finalized tomorrow.
Glenda was a respected registered nurse; a faithful wife to Jerry; the loyal daughter of Katherine and Mack McCormick; loving sister to Myron, Maxine and Sandy and mother of two grown children. We will miss her.
