Janie Mae Glenn was born in Chester, South Carolina on August 12, 1934 to the late Turner Glenn and Mae Fannie Glenn. She was educated in the Chester public school system during her primary years. In 1952, at the age of 18, she moved to New Jersey, where she continued her interest in learning at the East Orange High School of Adult Education. She took many classes to branch off into different areas. She ultimately worked as a home health aide for many years and retired as a class aide at a daycare center.
J. Glenn as some of us called her, never met a stranger and always wanted to know “what’s your last name?”. She loved her family and always wanted to find a way to connect you as that. She helped many of her family and friends to relocate to New Jersey. J. Glenn loved to tell stories about her dad, mother, aunts, uncles, and how she grew up. You had to listen every time, and there was usually a lesson to be learned.
J. Glenn loved of her church family at Mount Olive Baptist Church in East Orange (NJ), where she was very active. She also loved her church family at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Chester (SC), where she joined once she returned to the area to live out remainder of her years. J. Glenn couldn’t wait to go to church revivals every year and get all dressed up in her big hats. She knew she looked good!
Janie was preceded in death by her parents, daughter (Diane) and brother, James Hill. She leaves behind her daughter, Sharon Glenn and three grandchildren, Tysheria Glenn, Maurico Glenn and Jimmani Davis. She leaves Latoya Thomas and Melissa Henry, whom she helped to raise. She also leaves three sisters Janice Glenn, Janie Buckson Brown, Bessie Black, a brother, Turner Glenn Jr. and a cousin Mary Magalene Glenn (Lean), who was more like a sister.
She will be truly missed by her nieces, nephews, the rest of her family and friends and all who knew her.
