Obituary for Martha Elizabeth Templeton (Glenn)

Martha Elizabeth  Templeton (Glenn)
Martha Elizabeth Glenn Templeton, 88, of Sparta, Tennessee passed away on Monday, March 19, 2018, at her residence.

Born Friday, October 25, 1929, in Sparta, Tennessee, she was the daughter of the late Vance Glenn and the late Eunice Sparks Glenn.

Mrs. Martha worked in the local banking industry for 34 years. She was an active member of the American Cancer Society, where she served as Treasurer for many years. She was also a member of the Better Business Bureau of Professional Women and the Renaissance Club. She was active in the White County Farm Bureau Women's Committee, where she served as Women's Chair for several years. She was also involved in the local March of Dimes, and she participated in the Central View Community Club. She attended the Quebeck Church of Christ.

Martha not only had a passion for each of the causes and clubs she served; she also carried this devotion to her hobbies and interests. She loved attending auctions on a hunt for antiques and glassware with knowledge about worth and an eye for detail. Martha brought this uncontainable spirit to White County High School Basketball games, attending each home game and cheering on her team. No matter where she went, Martha brought her enthusiastic zeal for life with her. Her fervor for life was first and foremost felt by her family and friends, and she always made sure everyone knew her love and devotion for them.

Surviving are daughter, Janan Wallace (Jerry) of Sparta; son, Quinn Templeton (Joy) of Quebeck; granddaughter Kendra Wallace of Ashland City; granddaughter Megan Templeton of Rock Island; grandson Joshua Templeton of Quebeck; granddaughter Maria Templeton of Quebeck; sister, Florence St. Thomas of Charlotte, North Carolina; and special friend Gladys Garrell.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Clifford Templeton; sister, Ellen Officer; brother, Linze Arnold Glenn, and an infant brother.

Funeral service will be held at 2pm on Saturday, March 24, 2018, at Oak Lawn Funeral Home with Don Shuster and Robert Burton officiating. Burial will follow in Shady Grove Cemetery. Family will receive friends from 4pm until 8pm on Friday, March 23, 2018, and Saturday from 10am until 2pm at the funeral home.
