Glenda Ables Lawshe passed away at her home in
Goodman, MS on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. She
lived at her beloved “home place” where she was born
and grew up.

Glenda was born in 1940 to Martin Levi Ables and
Virginia Burrell Ables. She graduated from Holmes Jr.
College with a degree in accounting. In 1959, she
married her husband, William “Bubba” Lawshe. They
lived in Lexington, MS, Memphis, TN and Jonesboro,
AR before returning to Kosciusko and Goodman in
1978. They have loved each other through all that life
has thrown at them for over sixty-one years.
Glenda had a long and successful career with USDA
Farmers Home Administration while raising her four
children. Glenda always cherished the friendships she
made while working, especially JoAnn, Dot, Doris and
many others. She also helped her husband run several
successful businesses over the years.
Glenda was a devoted member of the United Methodist
Church her entire life. Taking her children to church
was always a priority.

After retiring, Glenda enjoyed traveling with her
husband and four sisters, gardening, and collecting
antiques. She was a volunteer at the Goodman Public
Library. Glenda was an excellent cook and enjoyed
nothing more than cooking for all of her children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Always the
gracious hostess, she wouldn’t sit down until she made
sure everyone else was at the table. Glenda will
always be remembered for her kindness that was
shown to everyone she met.

She was preceded in death by her son, Michael “Mike”
Allan Lawshe, her parents and her sisters, Marilyn
Ables Castle and Frankie Lloyd.

Glenda is survived by her husband William “Bubba”
Lawshe, her children Barry Lawshe (LaWanna), Jeff
Lawshe (Pam) and Laurie Parks (Jeff); grandchildren
Michael Lawshe (Suzanne), Whitney Robinson
(Kevin), Maggie Lawshe, Brandon Lawshe (Olivia),
Jack Parks, Emmie Parks, five great grandchildren and
two sisters, Mollie Smith and Virginia Smith.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 3, 2021 at
11:00 a.m. at Goodman United Methodist Church with
a visitation before the funeral at 10:00 a.m. The burial
will follow at Seneasha Cemetery in Goodman, MS.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be
made to the Alzheimer’s Association or Goodman
United Methodist Church.
The family would like to thank Sherry, Loretha, Mary,
Diane and Jackie for the loving care they provided to

When I started working for the FmHA, Glenda was the County Office Clerk. But it didn't take me long to realize that SHE RAN THAT OFFICE. Everyone from the boss to all the other employees went to her when they needed to know something or how to do something. And she was always kind enough to help us without making us feel like complete dummies. LOL I do believe she had a photographic memory as she knew all those big black procedure books by heart. LOL When she and Bubba moved to Arkansas, I got her job and did it scare me to death!! I knew I would never replace her. Those were some big shoes to fill. But thank goodness, she did return several years later. She was a dear friend and I will miss her so much.
