Miss Glenn and her pal, Miss Tarpine were my phys Ed teachers at Gateway HS. I remember Miss Glenn as being funny and a great teacher. She chaperoned our senior trip to DW and did so many other things with and for her students. My heartfelt condolences to her family. ❤️

I remember Miss Glenn as being Ted's older sister in Wenonah, then as my tennis coach at Gateway, and then as a parent and grandparent of my Wenonah students. My sincere condolences to Mrs. Glenn, Mike, Megan, and the rest of the family.
