As many are asking, Glen Hill, Jr. funeral arrangements are this Saturday, February 18th at Bittiker Funeral Home in Carrollton. The visitation begins at 2 pm followed by funeral services at 3 pm. The library is honored to host the family and friends dinner in the library lower level after the services at 4 pm as a tribute to Glen for his years of service and volunteering in our genealogy room. And also, to make him smile one more time.
We are very saddened by the passing of the library's genealogists, Glen Hill, Jr. of Wakenda, MO. Glen's knowledge of genealogy was amazing. His willingness to help families find their roots and family history was unsurpassed. Glen greeted library staff each morning with his smile, didn't know a stranger, and impacted many, many lives with his stories and recollections. His devotion to preserving history is found in the library's genealogy room by his works and hard efforts in resources he shared. He is reunited with the love of his life, Anna Lee. Glen will be missed by those who love, respect, and appreciate him as he flies high in heaven.
Thank goodness public libraries have friends like Representative Joe Don McGaugh and Senator Denny Hoskins to understand our battles and be your voice on the hill. I say your voice because this impacts each of you that reads, attends programs for all ages, uses the library's FREE internet connection & WiFi, utilize meeting spaces, download eContent, receive answers to reference questions, research genealogy, and is greeted each day with a friendly smile. 😄
