PLEASANT GARDEN, NC Mrs. Glenn Crowder Ayers, 93, died on June 26, 2012 at her home in Pleasant Garden.

A celebration of life service for Glenn was held at 11 am on Friday, June 29 at Pleasant Garden United Methodist Church.

Glenn was the first child born to Joseph Louis Crowder and Pearl Lowry Crowder on April 17, 1919 in Apex, North Carolina. She and her brother, Louis Joseph Crowder Jr. grew up together for 12 years until the birth of the third child, Phillip Lowry Crowder.

Glenn entered Greensboro College in 1937 to become a singer and performer. She graduated high school in Rocky Mount, North Carolina with honors and awards.
She met and married Robert Ayers on July 15, 1939, who was the principal of Providence Graded School in Randolph County at that time. This and the birth of their three children put Glenn's graduation on hold until June 1952.

She received her Bachelor's degree from Greensboro College and her Masters of Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 1964.

Glenn taught in Pleasant Garden in grades K-6 before becoming the music specialist for the Southeast District in Guilford County. Glenn was a teacher for 19 years.

She is survived by son, Robert Dick Ayers Jr. (Rebecca); daughters, Ellen Ayers Osborne (Ronald); Sylvia Ayers Spence (Dwight) all of Pleasant Garden; eight grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; and cousins.
