Lila (Glenn) Addison Hodge, 88, died peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday, March 2, 2017 in her home at Summerville Estates in Summerville, SC with all of “her girls” near her side.

Glenn was born on June 12, 1928. She graduated salutatorian from Lower Richland High School then attended the University of SC, where she was a member of Chi Omega Sorority. Glenn graduated Cum Laude from Newberry College in 1950 where she played basketball, and was voted May Court and Homecoming Queen.

After graduation, Glenn became a schoolteacher in Columbia, SC before starting her family and moving to Sumter. She dedicated herself to a life of service by raising five children, volunteering in nursing homes and various clubs and organizations including The Iris Garden Club, WMU at Grace Baptist Church, Pilot Club of Sumter and HAPPIE Chicks Boiled Peanuts of Edisto Beach SC.
She had an abiding love for Swan Lake.

She was preceded in death by parents, Glenn Clyde Addison and JoNelle Garner Addison of Eastover SC, her brother Dr. Gene Calvin Addison of Columbia and former husband Clifford P. Hodge, Sr. of Sumter.

Glenn is survived by her five children, Clifford P. Hodge, Jr. (Priscilla), Jeanne Hodge Griffith, JoNelle Hodge Gardner, John Daniel “Danny” Hodge (Suzanne) and Virginia “Ginger” Hodge; five grandchildren, Rachel Gardner, Cliff Hodge, Drew Gardner, Seth Hodge, Diana Hodge; one great grandson Finn; various nieces, nephews, extended, and honorary family members.

Glenn showed her love for her family and others through food and will be best remembered for her fondness of flowers, fascination with birds, her famous lasagna, and marvelous macaroni and cheese.
