Mike Yager, owner of Mid America Motorworks, recently posted the following message on Facebook that he received from retired Corvette Chief Engineer, Dave McLellan:

To our Corvette Family, Glenda passed away Friday morning after battling a diagnosis from last August of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She was her cheery and upbeat self right up to the last day. Glenda and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary February 6, 2015. We have been best pals and a loving couple for as long as we’ve know one another which was for 53 years and 3 months. She was unique and cannot be replaced. She will be so missed, yet she was happy and ready to meet the Lord. “

Glenda was a supporter of many within the Corvette hobby, and had the strongest Christian conviction I have ever witnessed. She will forever live in my memories. RIP Glenda.

I met Glenda several times over the years at various Corvette events across the nation.  She was an incredibly sweet and gracious lady that was incredibly supportive of her husband’s passion for the Corvette and was always by his side greeting fans and admirers of her husband.

On behalf of everyone here at the Corvette Action Center, I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to Dave and his family and friends.
