CASSOPOLIS - Annie Mae Glover, 103, of Cassopolis, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, December 19, 2012, in Cass County Medical Care Facility, Cassopolis.
She was born July 11, 1909, in Carroll County, Mississippi, to Wilson and Cora Lee (Hudson) Mattox, the oldest girl of seven children. She married Joseph Jefferson Glover on Christmas Day in 1928. He preceded her in death on September 18, 1976. She was also preceded in death by her parents; three sons, Clarence Wilson Glover, Joseph Jefferson Glover Jr. and Wadell Glover; three grandchildren; five sisters and one brother. Annie moved to the area in 1954 from Winona, Mississippi. She was a member of Chain Lake Missionary Baptist Church since 1955 where she served in various roles, including on the Missionary Society and the Usher Board. Annie was an avid gardener who canned most of what was raised and loved to bake. She was also an exceptional seamstress who made most of the children's clothes and draperies. Annie was family oriented. The grandchildren, who all called her "BigMomma," remember being at the house every Sunday after church, with so many aunts, uncles and cousins, it was like a family reunion every week. She and her husband used to make patchwork quilts. She retired as a domestic worker, having worked for several area doctors. Annie will be greatly missed by family and friends. She is survived by nine children, Bonnie (Jean) Glover of Chicago, Illinois, Ethel (Theopolis) Johnson of Cassopolis, William (Brenda) Glover of Cassopolis, Alonzo (Darlene) Glover of Cassopolis, Marvin (Judy) Glover of Cassopolis, Annie Irving of Elkhart, Indiana, Kathleen Alford of South Bend, Indiana, Leonard (Adrienne) Glover of Cassopolis, Connie (Stanley) McCarter of Mishawaka, Indiana; one daughter-in-law, Osie Glover of Jackson, Tennessee; forty-one grandchildren; great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren too numerous to count; one brother, Ira (Liz) Mattox of Chicago, Illinois; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Family and friends will gather from 5:00 until 8:00 p.m. on Friday, December 28, 2012, in Connelly Chapel, Wagner Family Funerals, 202 North Broadway Street, Cassopolis. Funeral services will be held at 12 noon Saturday, December 29, 2012, in Chain Lake Missionary Baptist Church, 16853 Chain Lake Street, Cassopolis, with the Reverend Norman L. Tubbs officiating.
Mrs. Glover will be laid to rest beside her late husband at Chain Lake Cemetery, Calvin Township.
