Marilyn Janell Glennon, 74, of Hermitage passed away on Sunday, June 11, 2017, at the Willis-Knighton Medical Center in Shreveport, Louisiana.
She was born in Hornbeck, Louisiana on March 27, 1943, and was the daughter of the late Leonidas and Mildred Holt.

Janell had many hobbies, including fishing, dancing, decorating cakes, cooking, and working on assorted crafts. She loved butterflies, was a huge Elvis fan and loved buying shoes, but most of all; Janell had a love for life and family. Her grandbabies were her world and her laughter and sense of humor will be remembered by all who knew her.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, John and Natile Gibson.
She is survived by her husband, Doyle Glennon, Sr. of Hermitage; two sons, Doyle M. Glennon, Jr. “Bodie” and wife Paula of Marion, Louisiana, and Richard Lane Glennon “Ricky” and wife Karen of Hamburg; two sisters, Peggy Brown of Florien, Louisiana and Patsy Ellis and husband Rupert of Lumberton, Texas; one brother, John Holt also of Florien, Louisiana; fifteen grandchildren; and ten great-grandchildren.
