Obituary for Glenda Gail Gardner Leverett

Glenda Gail Gardner Leverett

Her last day on earth was Christmas Day, 2018. She walked the hallways of Delmar Gardens singing Christmas carols and joking with the staff. One stated, “I’ve never heard her voice sound so beautiful!”

Glenda Gail Gardner Leverett was born in Edinburg, Texas on June 20, 1939. She grew up and graduated high school in Carrizo Springs, Texas where she was a cheerleader and an outstanding cornet player. She graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas majoring in music and education.

She moved to Peoria, Il where she was a teacher for 20+ years, going on to receive her masters and specialist degrees in education from Bradley University. She met the love of her life in Peoria. William Charles Leverett was a principal and shared her passion for education.

They retired to Goodyear, Az where they enjoyed friends and traveling until Charles’ death in 2016. Gail missed her husband and went to join him on December 26, 2018.

She was preceded in death by her parents, William H. Gardner “Bill” and Zelma Thomas Gardner of Uvalde, Texas and her brother, William H. Gardner, Jr. “Bill”.

She will be missed by her sister and brother-in-law, Debbie Gardner Silvestri and Tom Silvestri along with nieces Brenda Gardner, Ariadna Gail Gardner, Fanta McDuffie and nephew William H. Gardner, III along with numerous cousins and friends.

She will be placed next to her husband in Arkansas with a memorial celebration in June 2019. The exact time and date to be announced at a later time.

There will be a celebration of her life on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at 11 am at the Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church 105 Arnold Street Plumerville, Arkansas 72127 with the Rev. Dr. David E. Cox officiating. The service will be followed by interment, and dinner served at the church afterward.
