Born in: Decatur, Georgia
Resided in: Stone Mountain , Georgia

Glenda Long McLeod age 72 passed away unexpectedly at home on Sunday, July 3, 2022. Glenda was born on May 24, 1950 in Decatur, to Albert and Amma Long. She lived her entire life in the Stone Mountain area. Glenda was preceded in death by Albert, Amma, and oldest brother Edward. She is survived by her husband Johnny of 52 years of marriage, three children; daughter Kellie McLeod Dorsett (Chris), son Kyle McLeod (Katie) and daughter Kim McLeod, grandsons Connor and Rylan McLeod (Kyle). She is also survived by her brother Wayne Long (Mitzi) and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother (Ninna), Sister, Aunt and Friend

Glenda worked almost her entire adult life in only a few different jobs.  The most important and fulfilling was raising her three children as a “stay at home mom” she quite possibly could be the reason that the phrase was created. Once her children were all in school she went back to work for York pest control and later for Georgia MLS where she retired from late last year. She cared deeply for her family and friends.  She did not out of obligation, but because it was who she was. She was always willing to lend a helping hand to those that were in need. She enjoyed going to the beach and spending countless hours sunbathing and taking walks down the beach.  This truly was her “happy place”. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and loved spending time with her grandchildren.

Memories Timeline


  1. Sorry for your loss. I went to Stone Mountain High with Glenda. She was always a special person. I know she will be dearly missed. Praying for comfort for the family. Julie Sheppard Childers and Ron Childers

  2. CandleImageAlthough we never met your Mom, Glenda, we know from knowing you Kyle, Katie & boys what an amazing loving upbringing you must have had because of Glenda. Your smile, love to others, and patience within our friendship leads me to believe you got this from your Mom. We wish we could have met Glenda, knowing she would have filled our hearts with love and friendship. Although her passing was sudden, she truly showed her unconditional love each and every day while on this earth. Our hearts are sadden as you all go through this loss, but know that your Mom will always fill your hearts with the memories of her kindness, smile, and unconditional love for you all. God bless and prayers to your family.

  3. CandleImageGlenda was truly a wonderful friend as well as being one of my many cousins. We were classmate the entirety of our school days at Stone Mountain. We also were in Church and GA’s together. Glenda was very sweet and somewhat shy girl! I’m glad we got to reconnect recently! I am truly sorry for the loss you are going through! May God give you His peace! I’m praying for your family.

  4. Dear Mom,

    You were the first woman in my life and I am proud and honored to be your son. I know that I didn’t always make it easy on you growing up. The few disagreements that we had over the years only made both of us stronger. You were a caring and loving mother and taught all three of us very valuable life lessons that we will carry with us forever. I am sorry that I made you worry about me most of the time, but thank you for always being there for me. You filled my life with laughter and joy; you knew I was in pain even before I said anything about it. I will miss our many phone conversations as I travel down the road, but will continue to think of you always! I need you to know that I’ll be watching after dad so you can rest easy now. May you keep loving me as much as you do, I know I will be loving you!

    Your loving son,
