New Concord, OH May 19, 2020 – Village of New Concord Mayor Jennifer Lyle issued the following statement:
“This is a sad day for the New Concord community. Today we lost our favorite daughter, Annie Castor Glenn, who was born and raised here. In so many ways, Annie embodied the strength, perseverance, intelligence, kindness, compassion and love we all strive to have. We send special condolences to her cousin, Jane Castor.
A few of us in New Concord grew up with Annie, others had the good fortune to see her regularly throughout the years, and still others met her just once or twice. But all of us were impacted forever by this remarkable woman. All of us know how special she made each person feel, no matter the circumstance.
We in New Concord join our fellow Ohioans and fellow Americans in celebrating, remembering, honoring and loving our own American hero, Annie Castor Glenn.”
