Former First Lady of Corvette Glenda McLellan Passes Away

Glenda McLellan, wife of former Corvette Chief Engineer Dave McLellan passed was on Friday morning at the age of 73 after a battle with cancer.

We heard the sad news this morning from Mid America Motorworks Mike Yager who posted a note from Dave McLellan:

“To our Corvette Family, Glenda passed away Friday morning after battling a diagnosis from last August of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She was her cheery and upbeat self right up to the last day. Glenda and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary February 6, 2015. We have been best pals and a loving couple for as long as we’ve know one another which was for 53 years and 3 months. She was unique and cannot be replaced. She will be so missed, yet she was happy and ready to meet the Lord.”

Mike also added the following to his Facebook post which we wanted to share as well:

Glenda was a supporter of many within the Corvette hobby, and had the strongest Christian conviction I have ever witnessed. She will forever live in my memories. RIP Glenda.

I met Glenda maybe three of four years ago at the NCRS Winter Regional and she was just the nicest person to talk to. Her devotion to her husband Dave was well known and we never saw one without the other.

Glenda’s obituary can be read here. Please keep Dave McLellan and his family in your prayers during this difficult time.
