Inez Taylor Glover, 96, died peacefully in her home in Newnan, Georgia on Monday, January 2, 2017.
Mrs. Glover was born in Greensboro, Georgia on November 24, 1920 and was the daughter of Landrum Sanford Taylor and Ethel May McMichael.
She was one of five children. Her brothers, Lamar “Acie” Taylor and Jack Taylor, preceded her in death, and she is survived by her sisters, Ginny Taylor Clevenger of Calabash, N.C. and Betty Taylor Stovall of Atlanta.
Inez married Clifford Banks Glover, Jr. from Newnan, Georgia on April 28, 1945, and together they had three sons. Gandy Glover lived in Newnan and died on April 24, 2011, and Taylor Glover and Peter Glover both live in Atlanta. Mrs. Glover’s husband, Clifford Glover, died on June 18, 2007.
Mrs. Glover graduated from Valdosta State University and earned a 6-year teaching degree from West Georgia College. After their wedding, Inez and Cliff Glover’s first home was in Deland, Florida, where Cliff was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. After World War II ended, the Glovers returned to Newnan, and Inez continued her career as a schoolteacher at Elm Street Elementary School, where she taught for 22 years.
