Gletta Gwendoly Ferguson Mendenhall
Gletta ascended into heaven to be with her Lord after an extended illness on July 7th, 2022.
Gletta was born in Roseville to James Wesley and Mary Lillian (Smith) Ferguson on October 2nd, 1935. She graduated Roseville High School in 1953 and went on to receive a degree from Meredith Business College. She first worked for the Fraternal Order of the Eagles as a secretary. After taking a hiatus to care for her children, she resumed her career working for the United Steelworkers of America where she loved her job and those around her.
Those who knew Gletta in life would know that she loved the Lord dearly and this was evidenced by her generosity and kindness to others. She had a passion for gardening and many would say that she had a green thumb. Family was an integral part of her life and she went on many adventures with her daughters, and her sisters. She was always ready to embrace life, new experiences, and people. The love of Jesus radiated from her and could be seen and felt in her laughter.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 40 years, Ray Mendenhall, and also her sister Barbara Gardner.
She is survived by four daughters: Joan (Mark) Fluharty, Darla (James) Young, Christina (Patrick) Fisher and Jill (Michael) Moldoch; grandchildren: Kayla Warren, Joseph (Casey) Young, Jaye Young, Jordan (Chris) Cesta, Benjamin (Alyscia) Fisher, Alyssa Fisher and Breanna Moldoch; her great grandchildren: Harper Warren, Alyssa Hill, Cyler, Parker, and Izabella Young, McKinley Fisher, Caedan Hinkel, Emilia Pew and Alexander Fisher; her three sisters: Rebecca Hoopes, Vicky Hall and Deborah (Bob) Ratliff-Andrews.
