Glory was a devoted wife to husband Raymond O. Grogan, Jr., a loving mother to daughter Ticia Rae, son Neal and his wife Melissa, and a doting grandmother to Mason, Morgan and Payton. She joins in Heaven her parents Elton L. and Mable Bateman McCall, and mother-in-law Eileen Grogan. She was a devoted best friend to sister Glenda McCall White, and to her cousins Mary Fay Wilson and Pat Bateman.

Glory fully embraced her faith and was a longtime member of Oak Grove Baptist Church. She joyfully proclaimed her salvation and practiced the golden rule with understanding, and lived with the virtue of caring for others and forgiveness in her heart and deeds.

Glory had a kindness and gentle spirit that was matched only by her laughter especially at family-gatherings when the story-telling would produce tears from her rolling, infectious laughter.

Her passing leaves us heavy with our earthly grief, but we choose to celebrate the joy of her life, and heartwarming memories of a loving, rolling laughterÂ…
