February 26, 1961 ~ January 27, 2020 (age 58)


Glossie Mae Towner was born on February 26,1961 in Earle, Arkansas to the late Ernestine Clements and Edward Waits.
In 1970 Glossie relocated to Elgin, IL with her mother and siblings. She graduated from Elgin High School.
Glossie was employed as a paralegal with the Elgin states appellate prosecutor for 18 years. She graduated from Judson College with a degree in business, then later went on to receive a degree in theology.
Glossie was an ordained minister and she dedicated her life to God.
For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
 Until her health condition made it impossible, Glossie was active in the life of
 the church working with many ministry efforts.
 Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Hebrews 13:5 —
“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have.
   Glossie loved to love on people. She loved to swim and travel, but most of all she
 loved her family and instilled in her children strong values that have served them well.
 On January 27, 2020 Glossie heard Jesus call her name and she answered. Glossie
 displayed great courage throughout her illness. She will be deeply missed by her
 friends, family, and all who knew her.
 She was preceded in death by her daughter Gloria Jean Riley, her mother Ernestine
 Clements, her father Edward Waits, her grandmother Eliza Dorsey, and her brother
 James Clements.
 She leaves in God's care, one daughter: Fanta Williams, two sons:
Ethan Riley, Dyno Michael Mosely, four sisters: Elizabeth Pargo, Betty Donald (Nick), Gail
 Clements, Lorraine Rice (James), three brothers: Carl Clement (Dora), Willie
