4-23 OBIT Paula Wagner Glenn .jpg

Paula Glenn

Paula Wagner Glenn, 53, of Richmond, died Thursday, April 15, 2021, at the Hospice Care Plus Compassionate Care Center in Richmond.

She was born in Pikeville, Aug. 15, 1967, the youngest child of Marvin Rudy Wagner and Billie Barnette Wagner.

She attended Mullins Elementary and Mullins High School. After graduating from Mullins, she attended Prestonsburg Community College for one year. She transferred to Eastern Kentucky University where she graduated in May 1989. She was a proud alumna of EKU, not only because she valued the education she obtained there, but also, because she made many lifelong friends and sisters in the ADPi sorority that she loved dearly.

However, most importantly, Paula met the love of her life at EKU, William David Glenn, III. They dated throughout their college years and the years that followed until they married Nov. 21, 1992. They made their home in Lexington and raised two children.

She is survived by her husband, William David Glenn III; and her sons, William David Glenn IV and Colin Douglas Glenn.

She enjoyed working as a mortgage banker at Stockton Mortgage Corporation because she loved assisting people in fulfilling their dream of owning a home, but she felt her best accomplishments were being a devoted wife to her husband whom she adored and a mother to her precious sons. She found joy in participating in her sons’ school and athletic committees and was very passionate about volunteering with the Humane Society.

She is also survived by her mother, Billie; her step-father, James Stratton; her sister, Kimberly Wagner Lockhart; her mother-in-law, Donna Glenn; her sister-in-law, Amy Glenn Honnerlaw (Shawn Honnerlaw); and several beloved nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father, Rudy; and her sister, Debra Wagner Howe. Arrangements for the Celebration of Life service to be held at Clark Legacy Center in Nicholasville are pending.

4-28-21 OBIT Carson Moore.jpg

Carson Moore

As a friend once said, Carson was a spark! He lived life on his own terms from the day he was born until pretty much the day he died. He enjoyed life. Immensely. He made friends wherever he went, enjoyed a good drink (or two), ate ice cream as often as he could, and played a mean game of corn hole. He had one daughter, who was lucky enough to bask in his glow for nearly 50 years. And, along the way, he taught her some things. Be honest. Be kind. Say “thank you.” Spend wisely. And, plan for tomorrow. Last but not least, he hammered into her that she could do anything (thanks, dad).

Carson was a self-made man who hailed from Garrett, a small town in Kentucky. He joined the Marines as a young man, and soon after graduating boot camp, found himself participating in the color guard for JFK’s inaugural parade. Always the pragmatist, his recollection of that day was that it was cold.

Once he’d completed his service, he got a job in a field that would become his life’s work — accounting. He worked hard and rose through the ranks of corporate America, ultimately becoming the Director of Accounting Operations and Director of Financial Reporting for Mercantile Stores Company, Inc. He loved his work, obsessing over every way the company might be better, no matter how small the detail. One year for Christmas, his daughter gave him a sweater, and he was thrilled . . . with the box it came in. He excitedly exclaimed, “This is a great box! I’m going to take it back to our people so they can examine it and improve our boxes.” And, on the other end of the spectrum, he saw the impact that e-commerce was going to have on brick-and-mortar stores in the late ’90s and began warning people that big department stores would have to adjust (he retired shortly thereafter). He was almost always the smartest guy in the room.

Last week, he finally lost his multi-year battle with cancer. He was a fighter to the very end, and gave what is ordinarily an aggressive cancer a serious run for its money. The world shines a little less brightly without this quirky, smart man. But, he will live on in all who knew him — especially when they make a witty comment or keen observation and find themselves smiling at the thought, “that sounds like something Carson would have said!”

Carson is survived by his daughter Robin Moore and her husband Shawn Fenn; sisters Wanda Duff, Anna Lawson, Evelene Martin, Bonnie Conley, and Judy Schlegelmilch; brothers-in-law Rendell Lawson, Ancil Conley, and John Schlegelmilch; several nieces and nephews; his former spouse, Marty Kidwell, with whom he remained friends; and his dear friend Connie Orr. His parents, Edd and Una Moore; brother Gordon Moore; and brothers-in-law Carl Duff and Tommy Martin passed on before him.

When the pandemic is over, and it is safe to gather, there will be a celebration of his life. In the meantime, raise a glass to him tonight, or eat your favorite food. He would have liked that.
