|Death: ||Mar. 3, 2007|
Mary Beverly Lash Glenn, 84, departed this life on Saturday, March 3, 2007, after a long illness. She had only recently taken residence at the Lutheran Home in Winston-Salem. A lifetime resident of Forsyth County, she was the daughter of Emma Lash Flack of Bethania and stepfather, the Rev. Dr. Conrange Victor Clement Flack. Mrs. Glenn married Willie Casper Glenn of Bethania, and they were together in marriage for 63 years before his death in July, 2004. They raised six children together. She was a lifelong member of the Bethania AME Zion Church. Mary Beverly, as she was called, had a full life, and many will remember her for being a devoted wife and mother. She had a fighter's spirit, as was witnessed everyday by her family and later in life by the various nurses and care professionals who encountered her daily. She was known as a woman who possessed a quick wit, a keen mind and a warm heart. She loved to travel to visit family and friends. She especially enjoyed the beauty of flowers. She will be missed, though her zest for life will undoubtedly be carried on through those who have survived her. Mrs. Glenn is survived by her children and their families: Michael Ray Glenn and Willie Reginald Glenn of Winston-Salem, Dr. Robert Wayne Glenn (Dr. Beverly Caffee Glenn) of Cheltenham, Md.; Priscilla Ann Glenn Kerins (William J. Kerins) of Ellicott, Md.; Theodore Clinton Glenn (Miriam Smitherman Glenn) of Fort Washington, Md., and Jacqueline Hilton of Fort Washington, Md. She also leaves to cherish her memory a brother, Conrange Victor Flack Jr. (Lenora) of Durham; a sister and brother-in-law, India Glenn Martin of Bethania and Joseph Glenn of the city; caring and devoted cousins Gwendolyn Washington and Ronda Hill of the city and Richard Washington and family of Harrisburg, Pa., eight grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, several nieces, nephews; and other loving family and friends. Funeral services will be conducted at noon, Thursday, March 8, at Bethania AME Zion Church, with the Rev. Johnny Ruff officiating. The family will visit with friends at the church 30 minutes before the service. Interment will follow in Forsyth Memorial Park. (Clark S. Brown & Sons)
