Grace Ann Glynn
ORLANDO, FL. - Glynn, Grace Ann (Rogers), 94. Born January 19, 1919. Died February 23, 2013 in Orlando, Florida. Grace was a lifelong resident of Pawtucket.
As a single mom with two children she worked in the war effort of WWII while living with and supporting her own grandmother. In 1950 she formed her own business, designing, manufacturing, and selling a variety of satin and lace floral supply products to florists throughout New England. In her later years she maintained the business on a small scale until she was 85.
Grace had an indomitable spirit. She was selfless and generous - everything for others, nothing for herself. Her passion was her family - total devotion to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
She is loved by and will be missed by her surviving children, Barry and Gayle, and by her 7 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.
The funeral will be private. Donations in her memory are suggested to the American Breast Cancer Society.
