Glenna Maxey

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Glenna Maxey was born in Lubbock, Texas back in 1939.  She graduated from the Monterey High School in Lubbock.  Continuing her education at Colorado College followed by other classes at the Art Students League in New York.  In 1983, she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Her art appears in many places as well as her sculptures.

In 2007, she suffered a fall and a head injury.  It is not known if she fainted or had a stroke.  Later that same year she recovered and from what I understand he is still alive and well.

What you may not know about Glenna Maxey Goodcare is that she is best known for having designed the obverse of the Sacagawea dollar in 2000, and the Vietnam Women’s Memorial in Washington, D.C.  She also designed the 8-foot standing portrait of Ronald W. Regan at the Regan Library and another cast at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

Good morning James,

I would like to see the statues, I have a few of the dollars and remember they were like a two-dollar bill!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

I have not heard of her before James Dray BUT I can tell you, living in the State that Sakakawea was born in AND the State that has one of the largest man made lakes named Lake Sakakawea we see red in ND when her name is spelled this way and pronounced that way. BTW it's pronounced Saw-Ka-Ka-We-Ja here by the tribe she is from.

After reading this, James... I'm ashamed to admit that I knew nothing about the Sacagwea Dollar and has no idea there was a Viet Nam memorial to women. I will make a point of looking for it when I'm next in DC.

A very talented woman with a great skill. Love the monument, to often the war memorials honor our soldiers but forget the roles of women.

Sounds like she had quite a gift for designing. I actually have several of those Sacagawea dollar coins in my drawer.

Hi James:

I did not know the name nor the Sacagewea Dollar (but certainly knew of Sacagawea) but had heard of the Vietnam Memorial. And thanks to Barbara Todaro for the visuals to bring it all to life!
