Roy Eugene Glenn

Roy Eugene Glenn, 91 years, eight months and two days, of Plano, died at his home near Plano on Sunday, March 9, 2014. He was born July 7, 1922 to Roy and Rachel (Stoner) Glenn northwest of Seymour.

Gene graduated from Promise City High School in 1939 and became a member of the United Methodist Church in Centerville in 1944. Gene married Elizabeth (Betty) King of Centerville in 1945 and lived on a farm North of Promise City. To this union two children were born, a daughter, Mary Ann and a son, John. Betty and Mary Ann were tragically killed in a car-train accident in the summer of 1953. Gene married Joann Jones of Plano, on November 21, 1954. They later moved to a farm near Plano. To this union four children were born, Tim, Danny, Kimberly and Cheryl.

Gene was a wonderful husband and father and truly enjoyed his family. Gene’s other enjoyments in life were farming and raising livestock, especially cattle. He enjoyed driving his John Deere tractors and combines. In his earlier years Gene enjoyed roller skating and dancing, which he learned from his three older sisters. Gene participated in bowling leagues in Centerville and Corydon into his 1980s. He enjoyed his Promise City class reunions and attending his children’s sporting events.

Gene was very dedicated to the agricultural profession, receiving the Outstanding Conservation Farmer award in 1992 and the Distinguished Farm Family Award. Gene was the leader for Johns Junior Feeder 4-H Club for many years.

Gene was a quiet, soft spoken man who believed in God. He suffered two strokes, but rarely complained. Gene enjoyed taking drives with Joann to see his farm and cattle. He enjoyed family gatherings surrounded by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Gene leaves to mourn his loving wife of 59 years, Joann Glenn, of Plano; their children, John and his wife, Donna Glenn, of Centerville, Tim and his wife, Linda Glenn, of Plano, Danny Glenn and Christine Pozo of Centerville, Kimberly and her husband, Dr. Nick Hindley, of Centerville and Cheryl and her husband, Bill Hillyard, of Mediapolis; his sister, Eleanor Carpenter, of Baraboo, Wis.; grandchildren, Brock (Jenni) Glenn, Blake (Stacy) Glenn, Velvet (Jeremy) Buckingham, Whitney (Matt) Hornaday, J.R. (Ashley) Glenn, Tessa Glenn, Max Glenn, Delissa (Tony Strode) Hindley, Brandi Hindley, Ginger (Travis) Henderson, Cameron Hindley, Maggie and Jackson Hindley and Hannah, Haley, Heidi and Helaina Hillyard; great-grandchildren, Ashtin and Dugun Glenn, Caroline and Jack Glenn, Nash and Fischer Buckingham, Cecelia and Simeon Hammer; many nieces and nephews; and in-laws, Donnie (Karen) Jones, Gary Jones and Ielene Jones.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
