Sarah Louise Glenn

January 29, 1942 ~ January 11, 2022 (age 79)


Sarah L. Glenn was born January 29, 1942. At an early age, she accepted Christ as her personal Savior and was an active member of Thompson Chapel Baptist Church in Jonesville, SC.

Known by her family and friends as a professional secretary, dressmaker, caregiver, and writer, she delivered her unsurpassed best in all that she produced or provided and used her skills and talents to honor God.

She was preceded in death by her cherished and loving parents, Jeremiah J. & Josel Martin Glenn, along with her loving sister, Eula Mae Glenn-Glenn (John). She leaves behind her beloved sister Betty J. Glenn and brother, King S. Glenn, nieces Jacqueline G. Drummond (Marion), Marian A. Glenn and Kathy G. Hill (Calvin), her great nephew, Christopher M. Drummond (Sherri) and great niece, Corrie Josel Drummond, a close cousin, Mary “Etto” Linder and a dear family friend, Maurice Atchinson.

Sarah enjoyed her work as a professional secretary with Butte and Act lll, Division of Jonathon Logan, Inc. for over 2 decades. She was a faithful church secretary at Thompson Chapel for over 20 years, always performing her duties eloquently. After her season of work with Jonathon Logan, she transitioned into the role of legal secretary with a local attorney. During this transition, she subsequently developed her lifelong hobby of sewing, into an enjoyable entrepreneurship which she named, “Sarah’s Busy Hands.”  Self-described as a “dressmaker,” she crafted hundreds of beautiful garments for church choirs, bridal parties, girls’ pageantry dresses, women’s dresses and men and women’s’ suits for over 40 years.

While at her nursing facility she kept her hands active, often folding paper into origami like miniature shirts/dresses. Although her eyesight had diminished, she still found ways to appreciate her surroundings. She did so by often caressing her hands along her blankets and bedding as she enjoyed the feel of the fabric.

 She enjoyed reading, baking and spending time with her family, who affectionately called her “Aunt.” With the encouragement of her mother, Sarah wrote two poems, “Sunflower” and “A Mother’s Love” published in The National Library of Poetry- Spirit of the Age, a poetry anthology for amateur poets.

Sarah passed away peacefully in the presence of her family on January 11, 2022. She was kind, dedicated and compassionate in her mission to help and encourage others.
