Glyn Houk was born August 20, 1944 in Columbus, Georgia. Glyn was a homemaker with a big heart who loved her family and friends dearly. She and her husband of 31 years, JD Houk, enjoyed many life adventures together and were the very best of friends. Her passions included cooking for her family, passing time at the beach, quilting with her Grandma Bess and taking care of her precious Yorkie "baby".

Glyn was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother as well as a dear friend to many. She cherished spending time with all of her "Grand-blessings" - they were very dear to her heart. She will be greatly missed! Her memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew her.

Revelation 21:4 tells us "He will wipe away every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things are passed away and all things are made new. "
