Her story began when she was born to Paul Glenn and Agnes Carrington in St. Augustine, Florida in a small home on 18th Pearl Str. Molly was the 4th of 5 children and was the only girl born. Her siblings were Clifton, Frank, Alfred, Wyman, and a surviving brother Harry. Her middle name is of Welsh and Old English origin meaning “Holy, blessed reconciliation, or joy and peace”. Molly pursued an educational career at Florida Memorial College and graduated in May 22, 1967 with a B.S. in Science. Afterwards, she moved from St. Augustine to Orlando for her first job as a teacher at Lake Pickett Elementary and sometime after she was transferred to Winegard Elementary in 1972. She retired in 2001 at Winegard Elementary School with a certificate of excellence, dedication and serving for 33 years. She valued teaching and empowering students with the tools of education. Molly appreciated her students because she knew they were the future and precious resource. During this time, after work she enjoyed investing time with family life, traveling, exploring local towns or cities, and bowling. She loved newly released music of the 70’s and had quite a large album collection that she played records on large floor model Hi-Fi system. Her hobbies included oil painting sailboats, gardening, cooking soul food, hosting backyard gatherings, shooting fireworks, beach weekends, crab boils, planning holiday events for her children and avid lover of puzzle games. She was very spiritual, believed in God and was actively attending Sunday meetings. She always kept her God’s word the Bible next to her to read, study, and look for guidance. In fact she has one bible that has many miles on it by looking at the worn pages. Close to her retirement she became active with fitness/exercising routine and was a diet enthusiast. Her physical training included swimming, weight lifting, yoga, aerobics, and spin classes. Molly Glenn leaves behind her family legacy consisting of her oldest child: son Earl Jeffery Glenn, two twin daughters Maxine Perkins – Kelly (6 children/grandchildren), Francine Perkins – Kelly (3 children/grandchildren), and (Tony) Clifton Perkins (3 children/grandchildren). Our mother will never be forgotten, as she left us with many smiles to cherish. A lifetime of memories she shared while abiding in her Temporary Tabernacle.
