GLENDA FAYE TREECE KATZ
May 7, 1946 to January 21, 2013
Glenda Faye Treece Katz died January 21, 2013 at St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima, OH. She was born on May 7, 1946, in Plant City, FL, the daughter of Theo Treece and Connie (Barber) Treece. Most of Glenda’s early years were spent in Belleville, MI. The family later moved to Arkansas where she attended high school at Rogers and Trumann before moving to the Cincinnati and Lima area.
Glenda’s employment over the years included Herschede Jewelry Store and Lazarus Department Store in Cincinnati as well as self-employed artist. Art and poetry were her passion. She created sculptures from clay, designed jewelry, worked with paper and textiles, dabbled in watercolor, oil and acrylic painting, as well as many other mediums. She loved museums, estate sales, flea markets, and other places in which she might find a treasure. Glenda was a poet and her collection included many poems inspired by family and friends. “Memories: Deep in my heart I keep you there, you have never left me; For the memories are like roses that come back each year, more beautiful than the last. You have made prints on my heart to stay and nothing can ever wash them away. We keep making memories every day, we keep loving in our own special way. And the best part is nothing can ever take this away.”
Glenda was preceded in death by an infant son, Michael Aaron Atchison in 1975; her parents, Theo and Connie Treece in 1987 and 2000, and one brother, Gary W. Treece in 2007.
She is survived by eight brothers, Douglas (Mary Moon) Treece of Edgewood, NM; Jerald Treece of Mtn. View, AR; Roger Treece of Danville, IN; Donnie Treece (Ronnie) of Allen Park, MI; Randy Treece (Priscilla Gay) of Tekonsha, MI; Mark Treece (Sherry) of Taylor, MI; David Treece (Glorylu) of Bronx, NY; Phillip Treece of AZ; four sisters, Kathy Berean (Ken) of Edmore, MI; Carol Kaffka (Jay) of Mtn. View, AR; Ann Premo (Don) of Westland, MI; and Gail Smith (Jeff) of Gilbert, AZ. She is further survived by nephews, nieces, other relatives, and many friends who loved her very much.
