Story furnished by Ashley Loftis
In the early 1900's
Emmie Tew was very active in many aspects of community life in
Glendale. Although not trained professionally, she served as a nurse
and often filled that role for Glendale residents. She stayed with sick
people and provided aid and comfort. She organized and taught a cooking
school for girls in the community and is remembered as an excellent
Sunday school teacher at Glendale Methodist Church. Several ladies
connected with Glendale Methodist Church were named after her.
