The Daily Iowegian - 21 February 2007

  Diana Lynn Glenn, 56, of Jerome went from her home to be with Christ on Sunday, Feb. 18, 2007, after a courageous battle with cancer.  She was born Dec. 21, 1950 in Centerville, the daughter of Kenneth and Frances (Hamm) Owen.

  Diana graduated from Seymour High School in 1969 and received her BA from the University of Northern Iowa in 1973.
  She married John Glenn on Aug. 26, 1978, by the fireplace in her parents’ backyard. Two children were born from this union, Whitney and John Roy (JR) Glenn.
  She is also survived by her brother, Keith, and his wife, Sharon, of Pueblo West, Colo., and many in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
  Diana was dedicated to her family and friends’ lives. No words could ever describe the wonderful woman she was. She was full of kindness, beauty and grace to all who knew her and her legacy will live on. She was a number one fan, chauffeur and problem solver. Diana had a love for the Lord, antiques, design and spending quality time with family and friends. She was a past member of many organizations, including P.E.O., B.P.W. and the Seymour Booster Club, serving as president for a year while her children were in high school.
  Diana was an active volunteer for the Appanoose County Cattlemen’s Association and the Plano Christian Church, where she helped coordinate the Vacation Bible School. Diana was the guardian of the Jerome Cemetery and served as secretary/treasurer of the Jerome Cemetery Association. In her early career years, she was the service manager of Owen Motors and she then decided to become a full-time homemaker to raise her children. The last few years she owned and operated Vintage Treasures at Bradley Hall and The Columns.
  Friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. today, Tuesday, at the Thomas Lange Funeral Home in Centerville.
  Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21, at the Jerome Cemetery with Pastor David Welch officiating. The graveside services will be open to all family and friends as well as a gathering at the Plano Christian Church following.
