Rena known by most was born in Abilene, Texas to Vaughn and Delois Glover.

She attended AISD and graduated from Abilene High School in 1983.

A stranger to no one as everyone knew her smiling face and her fondness of engaging in conversations. She was a good mother and grandmother. Nae Nae loved all her grandkids (Kyle, Kaylee, Tatyana, Makenzie, Elijah, Peyton, Aaliyah, Averie, Kaliyah and Baby Jeremy). From sleepovers to the water parks to sporting events.

Rena's favorite past time was spending it with the grands. She loved doing puzzle pieces, canvas painting, and listening to music with Resha riding alone. She loved and did everything she could for her family and friends, which she loved dearly. Rena traveled as much as she could and loved every minute doing it.

Her dad Vaughn Glover, Brothers Willie Don Ray (Vanessa) Glover and Vaughn (Kristi) Glover, Sisters Bertha Bruno, Resha Glover George, God Daughters, Lashonda (VV) Cotton, Brianna Waithaka, and a host of Uncles, Aunties, Nephews, Nieces, Cousins and friends.
