LIMA -- Annie L. Glover, 94, died at 7:05 p.m. Jan. 5, 2013, at Lima Convalescent Home.
She was born Feb. 9, 1918, in Madison, Ga., to William Boswell and Lillian Chase, who preceded her in death.
On Sept. 22, 1941, she married Willie Glover Sr., who preceded her in death.
Mrs. Glover was a homemaker. She loved doing charity work and collecting boxes of apples and fruits to take to the state hospital. She continued her ministry even after she became ill. She loved playing with her grandchildren and singing. Her favorite song was "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus" and loved reciting Psalm 23. Her favorite question was "Do you got some money?" A huge moment was when she voted for the first black president and received two birthday cards from President Barack Obama. She was a member of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church and a former member of Philippian Missionary Baptist Church, where she was a member of the mother's board.
Survivors include three sons, Willie Glover Jr., of Ravenna, Harold Glover, of the Philippines, and Ralph (Daisy) Glover, of Victorville, Calif.; two daughters, Gloria J. (James) White and Clemmie A. (Arthur Jr.) Phillips, both of Lima; and 34 grandchildren, 114 great-grandchildren and 28 great-great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by three sons, Eugene J. Glover, Nathaniel Davis and Roger L. Glover.
Services will begin at 10 a.m. Friday at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church. The Rev. Cleven Jones will officiate. Burial will be in Woodlawn Cemetery.
