Glenda was born in April of 1941 in Moweaqua, Illinois, the daughter of Lewis and Ruby Evelyn Sheets. She graduated from Mt. Zion High School, Class of 1959 and after graduation, in August of 1959 Glenda married Ceals Yancey Jr. In her early career she served as a supervisor in the Macon County Circuit Clerks office, and in later years she greeted clients with a smile at Pat Fletcher Tax Service, McAtee Financial Services, and Mike Wilhoit Accounting and Tax Service in Mt.
