Glenita Rosanne Segura passed away May 20th, 2018 at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX after a yearlong battle with cancer. She was born in Dimmitt, TX to Glen and Sandra Smith on June 20th, 1968. Glenita was the first born of three children and grew up in the Texas panhandle. In 1987, she graduated from Kress High School as valedictorian, and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Houston, Clear Lake.

Glenita married Ricardo (Rick) Segura on February 14th, 1989 in Galveston, TX, where they spent 30 years together and raised their two sons. Her family was her life, and seeing her sons accomplish their goals was her greatest joy. Her proudest moments were watching Stephen graduate from Princeton University (2011), and Scott from The University of Texas at Dallas (2018).

She was very athletic during her school years, competing in basketball and track. Her love of sports continued throughout her lifetime, exemplified by her joy of watching football, especially the Dallas Cowboys, and participating in CrossFit. Glenita was an avid reader, and a very active parent within both the Boy Scouts of America and Ball High School band.

In her professional life, Glenita was the Director of Grants and Contracts Accounting at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, where she worked for over 23 years.

Glenita is survived by her husband Ricardo (Rick) of Galveston, TX; two sons, Stephen and Scott; mother, Sandra H. Smith of Tulia, TX; two brothers, Tim and Michael of Tulia, TX; and numerous aunts, uncles, in-laws, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

A special, loving thanks to all who helped Glenita during her struggle.

A memorial service will be held at St. Patrick’s Church in Galveston, TX on Tuesday May 29th, 2018 at 10:00AM.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to MD Anderson Cancer Center.

I ask God to wrap His loving arms around all of Glenita's family and ask Him to send His Holy Spirit to comfort you now. Glenita was a helper, a teacher and an encourager. She stood up for what was best and what was right in every endeavor she involved herself in. She was so very proud of her sons and told me that often. She inspired me. God be with you.

Rick, Stephen, Scott and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I read the post below, all true! Glenita was a great friend, mother and fighter. I will remember our friendship over the last 24 years, kids going to school together, lunches together and will miss her during the D'Feet Breast Cancer Walks. I hope and pray, one day, there will be a cure for all cancers. She's my hero, she fought a hard battle, now she can rest. Love you Glenita!

My prayers go out to Rick, Stephen and Scott I have been friends with Glenita well over 20 years. Two things I admired most about her. Her head strong opinions and her willingness and ability to vocalize what she thought and the love she had for Rick and the boys. She was very proud of them and always spoke so highly of them. She was a kind and caring soul and so full of life. I am thankful I was able to spend some time with her and blessed to have been able to call her "my friend". I will miss you. Until we meet again, sing with the angels. Your friend, Teresa

The love for her friends and family was so apparent. While talking and telling stories about her sons and husband I loved watching her face light up. There wasn't a day that went by that she didn't share something about them that didn't make her face beam with pride. I appreciated her willingness to listen to me as a friend. As busy as she was, if she noticed I was feeling stressed she would invite me in to talk. Whether it be a personal or professional conversation she always gave up some of her time to offer advice or just a friendly ear. I will always remember her laugh, her strength, her mothering personality and her commitment to family-both at home and at work. "Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday"

Glenita was a very special friend and I regret not having told her that more often. She loved her friends, her job but most of all her family. I will always cherish our memories and pray that she is now at peace. I will cherish her friendship forever. I love you Glenita.

I am very Sorry to hear about it. I had known Glenita for past 5-6 years at UTMB. She was not only a very strong personality, she was a subject matter expert in her area. I know its a tough time. My sincere prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. May God give you all strength to get through it. May Glenita Rest in Peace. She was a Gem of a person and she will be always missed.
