Emmie Tew
(Community  Worker)
Story furnished by Ashley Loftis

In the early 1900's Ms. 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.
