Glynda was born and raised in Kenora Ontario as a faithful and devout Catholic. As a child, she had a love for figure skating, dancing, music, and sports. She attended Mount Caramel School and the convent at St. Jean Baptiste. She was a member of the Catholic Women’s League and the Kenora Legion where she was an avid player in darts taking home numerous awards.

She was a member of supported services such as KACL, Sunset Psychiatric Survivors, and the Challenge Club where she overcame mental health struggles while also becoming a support to others.
