Shirley Ann Glass

Shirley Ann Glass, nee McClure, 79, of Millstadt, IL, died January 16, 2022, in Mascoutah, IL. She was born December 15, 1942, in Mound, AR.

She is survived by her children Helen (Dave) Siebenberger and Michele (Jeff) Griffin; grandchildren Jennifer (Josh) Schmitz, Jessica (Alex) Schmidt, Stephanie (Todd) Rick, Jaclyn Griffin (Reginald Williams), Hanna Griffin, and Madison Griffin; great grandchildren Bailey and Simon Rick, Elliot and Blayke Schmitz, and Harland Williams; brother Bob (Kathy) McClure; nieces; nephews; and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her husband Robert A. Glass; son-in-law Floyd H. Poelker; parents Herman O. & Annie V. (nee Jackson) McClure; brother Billy W. McClure; and sister-in-law Carol Sue Reeder.

Her faith was revealed in her daily life, helping others in her business dealings. Shirley was born into a long life of service to others. Her father was her mentor and his description of her was a "Go-Getter". Family was very important to Shirley all her life and she was blessed with 2 daughters, 6 granddaughters, 3 great granddaughters, and 2 great grandsons. Shirley never missed an opportunity to help, guide, and love each one of them.

Shirley enjoyed living at The Legacy and The Cambridge House Assisted Living and really enjoyed all the activities, events, musical sessions, numerous holiday events, and trips. All the staff and residents were very special to her. Shirley never met a stranger she didn't love.

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to:
Zion Evangelical Church in Millstadt, IL

Missy -

I'm so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I always enjoyed catching up with her at the Millstadt Homecoming. She'd fill me in on you and your family. I'm sure your sweet Dad was waiting for her and what a party they are having now. We lost Mom last April. It still seems unreal. Know you and your family are in my prayers.

Helen, your momma was truly like a second mom to me. I loved her and had many conversations with her after my mom died. She always made me feel welcome in your family. She was one of the nicest, devoted, loving and sincere women I ever met. Heaven got a good one. I bet your daddy was waiting with open arms. You always look back at your childhood and say that lady made a difference in my life. Yes, Shirley made a huge difference. Prayers to you and your family. I'm so sorry for your loss.
