Glenna  Hirshey


Glenna Hirshey, age 91, passed away on March 29, 2019 at Freeman Hospital (Joplin). Glenna was born August 6, 1927, in Yarnelle, AR, to James and Thelma Martin and grew up in Lanagan, MO. She moved to Joplin after high school and lived her entire adult life there.
After lovingly raising her children, she worked as a well-respected real estate agent, retiring in 1993. During her retirement, she enjoyed playing bridge and hosting dinners for dear friends. Her greatest joy was spending time with her children and grandchildren, who all adored her, and she traveled frequently to visit them.
Glenna was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Lona Martin; and her brother, Jimmy Morris.
She is survived by her son, William Hirshey, of Joplin; her daughter, Linda Carlson, of Keller, TX; her nephew, David Morris, of Oronogo; five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
A private graveside service for the immediate family was held at Ozark Memorial Cemetery.
