They are survived by three daughters: Jean More (Warren), Judy Bowman, and Jan Upton (John); six grandchildren: Nicholas More (Teresa), Mary More, Anthony More (Jezra), Jonathan Bowman, Samuel Upton (Chatnaree), and Andrew Upton; and two great-grandchildren: Adalin and Evan More. Also surviving are many fond nieces, nephews and cousins.
Their sisters and brothers, including Doris Winans, William Crampton, Leah Tavener, and Martha Foster, preceded them in death.
Glenn was a cowboy, a musician, and an ardent outdoorsman. Mary was a lifelong artist, nature lover, and nurturing wife and mother. They were devoted to each other, rich in family and faith, and they will be dearly missed by their family.
