Doris Ann Henderson Glover - Obituary


oris Ann Glover, beloved wife, sister, and aunt, leaves behind a great legacy and will be immensely missed by all who had the honor of knowing her. She was born on historical D-Day, making that date known as Doris Ann Day for her family. While attending Memphis State University, she became an aunt for the first time, a title she proudly treasured until her death on April 15, 2024. Born on June 6, 1944, in Memphis, TN, to the late Jack Lock and Doris Pankey Henderson, Doris earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Memphis State University. After graduating college, she embarked on a noble journey as a teacher, a role she embraced with unwavering dedication. To her peers, she was known simply as "Doris", but to her southern family, she was always and forever Doris Ann. She married Jere, the love of her life, on March 30, 1968. For 35 years, she taught elementary school in Montgomery County, pouring her heart and soul into improving the lives of each of her students, a commitment that continued until her retirement in 2003. Doris Ann delighted in each and every one of her nieces as they grew up. When they began having children, and the number of her great-nieces and nephews kept multiplying, so did her love for them. Even her great-great nieces and nephews all came to know and love their Aunt Doris Ann. She would frequently make time to travel to meet the newest additions and would absolutely cherish the time she spent holding them. From infants to the elderly, it didn't matter how old you were. Whenever you were in the presence of Doris Ann, the world seemed to stop, and her undivided attention would be upon you. She would smile, lean in, and nod as she listened to you. That radiant smile of hers would brighten up every room she entered. No matter the setting, she made everyone feel welcome, important, and heard. Doris Ann's family was not just a part of her life, but one of her most cherished possessions. Her home was always open, a welcoming space for her loved ones, where she hosted family gatherings both small and large. Her love for each of them was boundless, and she encouraged them all to reach their fullest potential, a testament to her unwavering support and belief in them.  Doris Ann was incredibly selfless and generous. Even though her nieces and nephews were spread across the globe at times, she never forgot a birthday or a Christmas present. She could always pick out the prettiest dresses for her nieces, the snazziest outfits for her nephews, and the coolest, age-appropriate toys for all. Doris was a longtime member of Severna Park United Methodist Church. Her faith was not just a part of her life, but the cornerstone that guided her every action and deed, a direct result of her personal relationship with Jesus. In this, we find solace, knowing that she is now at peace with her Savior. Doris Ann's legacy lives on in everyone she loved. She was an absolute treasure and will be dearly missed. Doris was the beloved wife of 56 years of Jere W. Glover; sister of Judith Lee Stevens; aunt of Valerie Stevens McLeod, Sidney Stevens (Ronnie) Petty, Juleanna (Christopher Reiter) Glover, Kristen Glover, Elizabeth (Patrick Sullivan) Glover and Rebecca (Darrell Issa) Glover; great-aunt of Jessica McLeod (Brian James) Patton, Rachel Margaret McLeod, Cale (Bridget McHoul) Petty, William and Blythe Weiss, Helena Walsh, Leopold Reiter, Shelby Glover and Avery Glover Sullivan and great-great-aunt of Ayelet, Oliver and Zayne Patton, Daniel Rounds, Derrick, Levi, Addy and Piper Petty. In addition to her parents, Doris was preceded in death by her brother-in-law, Frank Warren Stevens, and her Nephew, Jesse Holt McLeod.
