Graveside services for Georgene Ann Glenn, 89, formerly of Topeka and Tonganoxie, will be at 2 pm Thursday at Bean Cemetery in Little River, Kan. Georgene died Sunday, Feb. 28, 2021, at Rest Well Home in Oskaloosa, Kan.
She was born Dec. 11, 1931, in a farmhouse near Windom, Kan., the daughter of George and Alta Marie Smith Hunsinger. She was the oldest of eight children and attended Look Out School – a one-room school house before graduating from high school in 1950 from Little River. She worked in the Little River grocery store for several years after high school. She moved to the ‘big city’ of Topeka with sisters JoAnn & Kay and worked at Pelletier’s Department Store. Georgene married and had three girls but later divorced, and was a stay-at-home mom who also watched a few neighborhood kids. In the 1970’s she went back to work at Pelletier’s before beginning employment as a vehicle registration clerk for the Kansas Department of Revenue, and retired in 1997 after 21 years of service.
She is survived by daughters Debbie Barbery, Sheri Timm, and Jan Jones (Bill); sister Sharon Glenn (Ted); sister-in-laws Elma Hunsinger and Karen Hunsinger; eight grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Laurel, Dallis, and Karyl, sisters JoAnn, Kay, and Linda, step sister Meredith Voth, step brother Clare Hunsinger, grandson Ethan Cord Jones, and son-in-law Tom Barbery.
