Glenda was born on May 22, 1937, to the late Bud and Helen (Keel) Rucker in Tell, TX. She grew up in Ropesville, graduating from Ropes High School. Glenda moved to Lubbock in 1969, and in 1993 she married Chris Christopher. Glenda was a member of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church. Her hobbies included playing bridge, traveling and cooking. Glenda was an avid Texas Tech sports fan, and enjoyed her season tickets for football and men’s and women’s basketball.
