Watson-North Funeral Home is honored to serve and minister to the family of 87-year-old Mary Glendon Thorn of Estill Springs. Mrs. Thorn was born August 17, 1934 to the late Haskel and Georgia Foster. She passed from this life in the arms of Jesus on August 22, 2021, surrounded by her family. Glendon was a housewife, loved to crochet, scrape, cook, and was a loyal member of Riva Lake Baptist Church where she served her Lord and Savior for 34 years. She enjoyed working with children and served in the church nursery for several years. She also served on the Hostess Committee, sang in the choir, and was the Awana leader for 10 years at Sparks. Glendon loved everyone and always welcomed them into her home. Her door was always open and when someone visited her he was greeted with a cup of coffee, a glass of iced tea and a delicious dessert that she had made and ready to serve. Being a mother of 5 children, she has always had a house full of children. Many mornings she would wake up to make her children’s breakfast and there were several extra mouths to feed because everyone had brought a friend or two home. She was always smiling and had a great sense of humor. She loved her Lord deeply and everyone who spent time with her knew that. She will be sadly missed by family and friends. Mary Glendon is predeceased by her husband, Leonard; granddaughter, Stacy Marie; parents, foster family Haskel and Georgia; sisters, Alberta Coker, Clara Bob Thurman and Ruby Davis; brothers, Albert (Pocket) Foster and adoptive William Kenneth. She is survived by her children, James (Pam) Thorn of Lowell, IN, Terry Thorn of Winchester, Tony Thorn of Winamac, IN, Christie (Steve) Stewart of Estill Springs and Karen Benton of Winchester. She also leaves behind one brother, Ralph (Shirley) Foster of Manchester; grandchildren, Jimmy and Timothy Thorn, Shelby Stewart, Nikki, Amanda, Sara and Jeffrey Benton; 7 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. The family will receive friends at Watson-North Funeral Home on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. The funeral will be on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 at 2 p.m. in the Watson-North Chapel.
