HENRY — Angelina Marie Glenn, 101 years young, passed away Thursday, April 11, 2019, at Heartland Healthcare in Henry.
Angie was born Oct. 20, 1917, in Toluca to Joseph and Mary (Santi) Renini. She married Dawson “Tony” Glenn on Dec. 15, 1943.
She was a housewife and a nurse’s aide at St. Margaret’s Hospital in Spring Valley, retiring in 1985.
Angie was a member of the Magnolia Methodist Church and served as treasurer for many years. She also volunteered at Grange Hall.
Granny Angie had a deep love for her family and friends. She was always there for them; whether they needed a ride to a farm field, ball practice, 4-H meeting, or a pair of jeans patched or lunch delivered. She would lend a hand wherever she could, to anyone she knew. She enjoyed sewing, gardening and watching baseball; especially if her grandchildren were playing. Angie helped raise four generations of Glenns, making her a saint in the eyes of many. She was the recipient of the Ageless Achievement Award.
Survivors include two sons, James (Mary) Glenn of Magnolia and Terry (Mary) Glenn of Magnolia; seven grandchildren, Laurie Glenn of Magnolia, Tony (Dawn) Glenn of Magnolia, Jennifer (Rick) Garinger of Champaign, Tim Glenn of Henry, Andrew (Jennifer) Glenn of Magnolia, Krystal (Bart) Vaughn of Westmont and Megan (Alex) Tarr of Magnolia; nine great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and her faithful companion, “Mackie.”
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and one son in infancy.
Services will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 13, at the Magnolia Methodist Church in Magnolia with the Rev. Jan Ringenberg officiating. Burial will be in the Magnolia Cemetery.
Visitation will be prior to the service, from 1 to 2 p.m., at the church.
Pallbearers will be Michael Glenn, Tim Glenn, Tony Glenn, Andrew Glenn, Derek Glenn, Jeremy Glenn, PJ Garinger and Rick Garinger.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Magnolia Methodist Church or Putnam County Ambulance.
