Died in Cartersville Ga., July 22, 1893, Mrs. Anna R. Glenn in the 57 th year of her age.
She was a daughter of the late Judge Turner H. Trippe and was born in Clarksville, Ga., on the 16 th of April 1837.
During her childhood her father settled in Bartow county where she was reared and where she was married on the 10 th of March, 1857.
About a year after her marriage she moved west, but returned to this county after the war.
Some time after this she moved to Columbia, South Carolina, and after a residence of six years in that city she removed to Cartersville, in January, 1873, where the last twenty years of her life were spent.
These few facts and dates furnish a very imperfect record of a noble, heroic, consecrated life. Mrs. Glenn was of the very highest type of a woman and a Christian.
She inherited from her distinguished father superior mental endowments, which were cultivated and developed under the benign influences of a refined and Christian home.
She was a woman of more than ordinary intelligence, of strong convictions of duty and clear perceptions of truth and was always ready to give an answer to any who might ask “a reason for the hope that was in her.”
She had a tender conscience, a sympathetic and loving heart and a frank and cordial manner which easily won and retained the confidence and esteem of all who knew her.
Those who knew Mrs. Glenn best would probably mention decision of character, unswerving devotion to principle, patience under suffering and sincerity of heart and speech, as among her more prominent characteristics, and yet with her firmness she possessed in an eminent degree “the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit which is in the sight of god of great price.”
At the age of fifteen she accepted Christ as her savior and united with the Methodist church.
Soon after her marriage she joined the Presbyterian church of which she was a consistent member during the remainder of her life.
Mrs. Glenn’s sphere in life was a limited one, but she filled it completely and has doubtless heard the welcome words of her savior “well done good and Faithful servant, thou hast been faithful over a few things I will make thee ruler over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
As a mother she was gentle, thoughtful and loving; as a neighbor she was kind, social and considerate, as a Christian she was consistent and faithful.
She fought a good fight, she finished her course, she kept the faith, and she is now wearing the crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge shall give to all those that love His appearing.

A Sudden Death.
Mrs. A. R. Glenn is stricken with Apoplexy and Dies in a Few Minutes.
On Saturday evening about seven o’clock the people of Cartersville were shocked by the announcement that Mrs. A. R. Glenn had died a few minutes before at her home in this city.
Mrs. Glenn was alone at the time. Her daughters, Misses Fannie and Sarah, and Miss Cooper, who is stopping with them for a few days, had gone out for a walk, leaving her in her usual health.
They had been gone only a short time when one of the neighbors saw Mrs. Glenn walk out of the garden to the back veranda and sit down in a chair. She soon saw that something was wrong and hurrying over found Mrs. Glenn struggling for breath. Some one was sent for a doctor and her daughters and Dr. Riddle answered the call, but he was unable to do anything, and she expired shortly after his arrival.
Mrs. Glenn has recently had several severe attacks of smothering from asthma, but no one anticipated any serious results. Her death is attributed to apoplexy.
Mrs. Glenn was a daughter of Judge Turner H. Trippe who presided in this circuit before the war. She has long been a consistent member of the Presbyterian church, and has a large circle of friends who were greatly shocked by her sudden demise. She leaves three daughters and two sons, all of whom were devoted to her, to mourn the loss of a loving mother.
Her remains were laid to rest at Oak Hill cemetery on Monday morning.
