Glenda Rae (Cox) Berry

August 24, 1932 — April 15, 2024


Glenda Rae (Cox) Berry, 91, of Boise, formerly of Buhl, passed away Monday, April 15, 2024, at a Boise, Idaho hospital. 

Glenda was born on the family farm in Buhl, Idaho to her parents, Nile and Anna (Porter) Cox on August 24, 1932. All the kids in the family had chores and she enjoyed the farm which was quite a distance from town. Glenda attended Deep Creek and Castleford schools graduating from Buhl High School in 1950. She attended Utah State for a year and then attended Dental Hygiene school in San Francisco, California. 

While working in the Boise area she met Bud Berry in 1953. Their paths would cross again four years later and eventually, they were married in Boise at the original Red Rock Christian Church on December 19, 1958.

Glenda later worked at Mountain Bell, and afterward at the US West Telephone Company as an Executive Assistant. She also worked as a dental assistant for several years.

Glenda truly enjoyed BSU Football and at one time she could name every NFL quarterback. RV road trips and camping with Jess, Lois, Don, and Dean were some of her favorite times. She took several Alaska road trips with Sharon who was a writer and photographer for the Alaska magazine “Milepost”.

Retirement found her and Bud enjoying winters in Arizona, traveling in the summers, and always returning to Boise for the Boise State football season. Many of their neighbors and their families became lifelong friends.

Glenda is survived by her sister, Lorna Kolsky; brothers, Jay (Carol) Cox, and Evan (Diane) Cox (who were also traveling companions on many memorable trips); and a number of much-loved nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; sister, Anila; brother, Velmont; two sisters-in-law, Mary Kathryn Berglund and Margaret Ann Greenwalt; and three brothers-in-law, Don Kolsky, John R. “Jack” Berry and Dennis D. Berry.

A graveside service will be held at 3:00 pm, Saturday, April 20, 2024, at West End Cemetery, 1574 East 4150 North, Buhl.
