Susan (Glenn) Hilgert, 43, went to be with her Lord and Savior and her Granny on Friday, March 28, 2014. Susie was an incredibly loving, kind, fun-loving, spirited and beautiful soul inside and out and will be terribly missed by all who knew and loved her. She will be best known for her infectious personality and her undying love for her son, Gage Hilgert and her family and friends. She lit up a room.
Susan is preceded in death by her paternal grandmother, (Granny) Margaret Glenn of Dadeville, Mo.; her mother, Connie (Fudge) Glenn Eineichner, Iola, and paternal grandfather, Archie Glenn, Dadeville, Mo.
Susan was born on Oct. 30, 1970, in the Bremerton Naval Hospital in Bremerton, Wash., to Bob and Connie Glenn. She attended Dadeville Elementary School, Ash Grove Elementary, Middle and High School. After high school she attended and graduated from Missouri School of Cosmetology.
With an amazing work ethic, she worked in many hair salons in Springfield, Mo. An extremely artistic and talented individual, Susan faced everything with passion, zeal and a lust for life. She never knew a stranger and everyone was the same to her; all just people and people to her were wonderful. She loved the elderly and those less fortunate than she. She touched many, many lives in her short time here on earth and her legacy of love will be felt for years to come.
Susan is survived by the love of her life, her son, Gage Michael Hilgert, Springfield, Mo.; her father, Bob Glenn, Everton, Mo.; her stepparents, John and Paula Eineichner, West Allis, Wis.; her sister, Robin Byler and brother-in-law, Greg; nieces, Kendal, 11, and Jacey Rae, 6; and nephew, Grant, 3; her sister, Christy Eineichner Patton and brother-in-law, Robert, nieces, Brooke, 14, and Olivia, 8; and a host of other loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
