Mrs. Mary Glenn, age 73 years died shortly after noon Wednesday [November 22, 1933].  A few months ago she had a stroke and was partially paralyzed, but her condition improved and she was able to be about. Wednesday morning she had a stroke of apoplexy and passed away the same day.

She was the wife of C.B. Glenn who died in 1927 and survived by a grand-daughter, Mrs. J. Newton Nutt, whose mother died when she was small and was raised in the home of her grandmother and her many friends with her in her hour of sorrow.
