Mary Ella “Am” Graham Glymph, of Pomaria, who celebrated her 103rd birthday on November 21st entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, December 2, 2015, at Newberry County Memorial Hospital.

She was retired from Old School Manufacturing. “Am” was a member of Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church where she was involved over the years in many aspects of the church. She played the organ for 60 years, was involved with the 55+ Group, the Women's Missionary Society, and was an honorary member of the Men's Group. “Am” never complained and always was content and satisfied in any situation that God gave her to face.

“Am” is survived by nieces, Brenda G. Chappell (Mike, deceased) and Mitzi S.

My Mother, my sister and I all worked with Mrs. Mary Ella at Old School, she always waved with a big smile on her face when I got to work in the afternoons after school. Such a warm and loving person. She surely will be missed by all who knew her.
