Our sweet mom, Glendola “Gwen” Sanders, passed away on November 14, 2019 after a brief battle with cancer. She was 72 years old. Born on November 25, 1946 in Arkansas to Evelyn Rutledge and Lawrence Rutledge. In the hours before her passing, she was surrounded by her loving and caring family at home. Gwen moved to Oregon in 1962 with her family to work in the bean and berry fields. She had her only child, Juli, in 1967 and married her life partner Bud Sanders on April 2, 1970. Gwen was a lover dachshunds (Cindy, Spunky, Cocoa, Mandy and Tea) an avid Elvis Presley fan and enjoyed spending time travelling to Nevada with her husband.
