The H. Marshall Glenn Scholarship Endowment Fund was established through the receipt of a bequest from the estate of his wife Margaret F. Glenn (1916-2006).
Mrs. Glenn was born in Ashton, Illinois and moved to Aurora when she was six. She was a graduate of Madonna High School. In 1953, she married H. Marshall Glenn (1906-1996).
Mr. Glenn was born in Plainfield, Indiana. He owned the Marshall Glenn Insurance Agency from 1949 until his retirement in 1993. The business was located at 33 South Fourth Street in Aurora.
Mr. Glenn had formerly been employed by the Chrysler Corporation in Detroit, Michigan, King Seeley Corporation in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Travelers Insurance Company and American Auto Insurance Company.
Scholarships from his fund will be available to residents of the Fox Valley area who are furthering their educations at a two-year college, a four-year college or university, or a trade or vocational school.
According to his granddaughter Stacy Zagar, Mr. Glenn’s favorite saying was, “Never mind what has been. Bigger folks than you have made bigger mistakes. Press on to what lies ahead.”.
