After Monday's tragic Metro malfunction, Carol Glover left this life to be with Jesus. She leaves behind a family devastated by this tragic and sudden loss.
But thinking about her life brings such joy. She loved her two sons so much and adored her three grandchildren. She enjoyed going to the movies and Nationals baseball games with her son Marcus, who lives in Alexandria. Two of her beloved grandchildren were born in 2014--a daughter to each of her two sons.
Carol was looking forward to watching her grandchildren grow up. She had so many fun plans for them. She understood and loved her sons well. She always had the right words to help them navigate the ups and down of life. She was quick to listen and give good, measured advice. She had a smile that could light up a room and was profoundly grateful for all she had.
She loved the Lord and constantly pointed those around her to hope in Christ and to trust in him for everything. She was a member of Capitol Hill Baptist Church and was always connecting with older and younger members of the congregation to make sure they felt included. She was an example of humility and strength.
She was an amazing, strong woman. She loved deeply from a strong Christian faith. A generous, warm, hardworking woman.
The Glover family welcomes your prayers and support during this difficult time. Funds donated here will be directed towards funeral or general unplanned expenses.
