Susan Pate Glover Jordan Logan
November 1, 1944 - March 8, 2020
Susan Logan passed away peacefully on March 8 in her home in
Hendersonville, North Carolina, surrounded by loved ones. Susan
was born in 1944 in Newnan, Georgia, the third and youngest child
of the late Thomas Jones Glover and Martha Lala Pate Glover, and
the twelfth of 26 grandchildren of Howard Clarke Glover and Fannie
Virginia Jones Glover. She was preceded in death by her sister
Fannie Jones Glover "Jonesy" Mullally, her brother Thomas Jones
Glover, Jr. and her first husband Dr. Brian Thomas Jordan. She is
survived by her husband, William H "Bill" Logan of Hendersonville,
and her son, Kevin Brian Jordan of New Orleans, as well as by her
much-loved nieces and nephews; Lisa Mullally Smith and
husband Matt, Holly Mullally Fortson, James Campbell Mullally,
Lynda Glover Burgy and husband Frank, Thomas Jones Glover III, and
13 great-nieces and nephews.
Susan attended Wesleyan College where she received her nursing
degree as an RN. She practiced nursing for nearly 40 years; many
of those happy years in New Orleans, where her son Kevin still
lives. Susan met her husband, Bill Logan, in 1997 and joined him
in Monterey, California, where she continued in her nursing career
and shared with Bill a passion for photography. Susan and Bill
moved to Hendersonville in 1999. Susan served as a psychiatric
nurse case manager at The Free Clinic in Hendersonville until
2016. She particularly enjoyed this interval of her profession,
taking great pleasure in the comraderie of both her colleagues and
In 2016, the always vibrant and energetic Susan was quite
surprisingly diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Following
traditional and then experimental treatment at Wake Forest Baptist
Hospital, she beat the odds, went into remission and enjoyed
astonishingly good heath for more than three years. Susan did not
let these precious days go to waste. She understood life as a
miracle and each day as a gift. A devotee of the psychology and
teachings of Carl Jung, a Tai Chi instructor, a creative writer, a
marvelous photographer, a person who dances constantly to the
music (real or imagined), Susan was, in every sense, a true
celebrant of Life. Her family, friends and faith community
witnessed the honest courage and joy that Susan lived with in the
face of the uncertainty of her physical future.
A week before her passing, Susan had a dream, a vision, in
which she stood on a plateau overlooking wide savannahs, lush and
green, with mountains in the distance. She was overcome with
peace. She realized that no matter what happened next, it would be
another part of life's beautiful adventure.

of the time they shared with Susan and in appreciation of her new

Margaret Trapnell Glover
Margaret Trapnell Glover, 107, of Newnan, Georgia, died peacefully
at home on April 28, 2018. She was born on December 30, 1910, to
John Moore and Frances Farmer Trapnell. She graduated from Newnan
High School and in 1932 from GSCW, where she earned her degree in
three years and excelled in academics, school activities and
sports. During her senior year, she was the Editor-in-Chief of the
Colonnade, the college annual.
On January 1, 1938, she
married the love of her life, Howard Clarke Glover, Jr., M.D.,
Newnan’s beloved pediatrician; and until his death more than 72
years later, her life was centered on Dr. Howard and their four
children. She was predeceased by her only sibling, her sister
Harriett Trapnell, but is survived by her children - Harriett
Glover McCune, Alexandria, Virginia; Howard Clarke Glover III
(Becky), Chattanooga, Tennessee; John Trapnell Glover (Sandra) and
William Norwood Glover, Atlanta, Georgia; five grandchildren-John
C. McCune III, Jupiter, Florida; Howard Clarke Glover IV (Nicole)
and Richard T. Glover, Chattanooga, Tennessee; John T. Glover, Jr.
(Merrilee), Bozeman, Montana; and Jeffrey B. Glover (Carrie),
Atlanta, Georgia; eight great-grandchildren; and many nieces and
nephews. She is also survived by her dear sister-in-law Winnie
Glover Klein of Atlanta, Georgia.
Very smart and
well-organized, she successfully managed a busy household for her
family and supported many local groups and charities. She was
exceptionally proud of her family and was an unfailing voice of
encouragement and support for her husband, children and
grandchildren throughout her life. An independent thinker, she
would vigorously defend her opinions against any challenge, rarely
admitting any need for correction. She was a proponent of the
virtue of continuous self-improvement and delighted in sharing
newspaper and magazine articles and clippings, touching everything
from fashion and travel to history and politics, with friends and
family for their enjoyment and interest.
Always noted for
her stylish and elegant dress and manner, she loved a day in
Atlanta or New York shopping with friends. She enjoyed working in
her garden, even though she risked being teased for her chic
“work” outfits. But Miss Margaret was perhaps best known for her
wonderful, classically-trained soprano voice. For almost three
decades, she was a mainstay and frequent soloist with the choir of
the Central Baptist Church; she also enjoyed singing at weddings
of the children of her friends.
After the children were
grown, she and Dr. Howard travelled frequently to all corners of
the globe. She loved visiting new places and was always a real
trooper, once riding a camel in the Sahara with broken ribs.
Because she long enjoyed robust health, she continued to travel
into her ninth decade. It was surely her positive and optimistic
outlook, her unwavering Christian faith, her love of family, and
her refusal to concede anything to age that contributed to her
She was blessed to be able to spend
her last years comfortably at home due to devoted and capable
caregivers. The family especially thank Sandra Brown, Barbara
Griffin, Virginia Johnson, Janie Rhodes, and Gail Neal for their
many years of loving service.
The funeral service and
interment will be held at the graveside in Oak Hill Cemetery,
Newnan, Georgia, at 1:00 PM on Friday, May 4, 2018

Edward William “Kip” Klein III, 63: Former Republican state lawmaker
Kip Klein, seen here in an undated file photo, was a pioneer in
the Georgia GOP ranks when he served in the Legislature from
1991 to 1997.
Kip Klein, a Marietta attorney and pioneer in the Georgia GOP
ranks when he served in the Legislature from 1991 to 1997, has
died. He was 63.
Life changed for Klein, who represented what at the time was
District 39 in Cobb County, shortly after he ran for the
Republican nomination for attorney general in 1998. He was
diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease – the degenerative,
neuromuscular disorder that also afflicts actor Michael J. Fox
and ex-boxer Muhammad Ali.
Edward William Klein III, known as Kip by nearly everyone, died
Monday of complications from Parkinson’s disease, said his
daughter Shannon Klein of Washington, D.C.
Services are planned for 3 p.m. Friday at the First Baptist
Church in Woodstock.
Though Klein’s bid for attorney general was unsuccessful, he was
beaten by David Ralston of Blue Ridge who was defeated by
Democratic incumbent Thurbert Baker. Still, Klein remained
politically active. He and his wife Sharon began working with
U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson – a close friend of the couple – on a
compromise that would allow research using select embryonic stem
cells, which had been severely restricted by President George W.
Ralston, who went on to become House speaker, said Klein
“embodied the very meaning of worthy adversary.”
“I will forever remember his kind spirit and tenacious will, his
passion for the ideas in which he believed, yet respect for
those who disagreed with him,” he wrote in an email. “The
integrity and dignity he brought to public service are qualities
that are becoming all too rare in today’s political climate.”
In addition to his daughter, survivors include his wife of 36
years, Sharon Klein of Marietta; daughters, Tate Ferguson of
Dallas, and Brittany Hunter of San Jose, Calif.; brother, Danny
Klein of Newnan; step mother, Winifred Klein of Atlanta; step
sister, Caroline Alford of Rome; step brothers, Dan Boone of
Spring Island, S.C., Major Boone of Marietta, Carl Boone of
Florida, Bill Boone of Atlanta, and Bob Boone of Pinehurst,
N.C.; and one granddaughter.

A memorial service is planned at 3 p.m. Friday in the chapel of First
Elected to the Georgia House in 1990 as a Republican, Klein served until
Among those who served with him in the General Assembly was U.S. Sen.
Isakson said in 1990 there were 35 Republicans and a 145 Democrats in
the Georgia House.
“I would say anybody getting elected as a Republican with those kind of
odds would definitely qualify for being a pioneer,” Isakson said. “He

Klein’s northeast Cobb district has changed over the years through
redistricting to now be represented by John Carson.
“I’ll miss him as a friend,” Isakson said. “I’ll miss him as a
thoughtful advisor, and I’ll miss him as a guy who advocated for the
rights of children and the family. Just an all-around prince of a
Klein’s Republican colleagues aren’t alone in admiring the man. State
Sen. Steve Thompson (D-Marietta) had high praise for Klein.
“He’s a little bit more to the right than I was, but we understood that
and it never interfered with our friendship at all,” Thompson said. “He
was one of those people that understood that friendships continue where
politics sometimes stop. He’s one of those guys at 5 o’clock that
understood that we were friends and neighbors, and I guess the best way
to describe him is a gentleman. He was a gentleman and a very bright
guy, and his motivations were always in my opinion very sincere.”
Klein’s daughter, Shannon Klein, a member of the Lassiter High School
Class of 2005 who now works as a legislative aide for Isakson, said the
family was holding up as best they could.
“We’ve lost a great man and a great father, but we know that he’s with
the Lord, and we’re relieved for him that he’s free of suffering as much
as he’ll dearly be missed,” she said.
The manner in which Klein prioritized his life is one of the many things
his daughter admires.
“He loved the Lord first, then my mother second, the girls third, and
with every other ounce of time he had he served others and poured his
life out to others while he was well,” Shannon Klein said. “He’s been
battling Parkinson’s for the past 15 years, but that’s not what we
remember. Instead, we remember the legacy of service and strength that

member of the Newnan Junior Service League as well as a member of the
Ladies Auxiliary at Newnan Hospital. A consummate
hostess, an avid bridge player, a master of knitting and needlepoint,
but above all these she cherished her family. Even after moving to
Wesley Woods in 2000 she continued to orchestrate the annual family
gatherings at the old family home on Alpine Drive. Those who knew
her will long remember her love of humor and her constant smile. This
ever-positive outlook infected all around her. Just recently she
joked that she probably was Newnan's oldest Matron of Honor, having
served as such at the age of 85 for a close friend's wedding. A celebration
of her life was held at Central Baptist Church at 1:00 O'clock pm on
Friday, the 5th of November. In lieu of flowers the family requests

Clarke Glover Jr.
chapter in the historical fabric of Coweta County came to an end in
the early morning hours of Sept. 10, 2010, as Dr. Howard Clarke
Glover Jr. departed this life in the comfort of his home."Dr.
Howard," as he was affectionately known, had celebrated his
101st birthday last Dec. 17. He was born in Coweta County Dec. 17,
1908, and was one of nine children of the marriage of Howard Clarke
and Fannie Virginia Jones Glover. Besides his
parents, Dr. Glover was preceded in death by his siblings Virginia
Glover Graham, Caroline Frances Glover, Thomas Jones Glover, J.
Littleton Glover, Mary Jones Glover Nixon, and the brother with whom
he operated The Glover Clinic, Dr. Nathaniel Banks Glover. Educated as an
undergraduate at Mercer University and the University of Virginia,
Dr. Glover graduated from University of Virginia's School of Medicine
in 1934. He was a member of Kappa Alpha and the Phi Beta PI medical
society. He served internships and residencies at The Children's
Hospital of Philadelphia, Watts's Hospital in Durham, and at Egleston
Hospital in Atlanta (now Children's Healthcare of Atlanta).He then
returned to his roots in Newnan to practice medicine for more than 55
years, and for more than 40 years he operated the Glover Clinic at 6
Brown Street in partnership with his brother Nat. He retired in 1993
at the age of 85.Possessed of a
remarkable spirit of service, Dr. Howard was the saving grace for
many an anxious parent. His calm, reassuring manner put fears aside
if the child presented a runny nose or any other more serious
problem. His patients knew that at the end of the visit there would
be that comforting hug from Dr. Howard to go along with the bird he
inevitably drew on each child's hand. Mom and dad would be sent on
their way, knowing that this good man would welcome their calls of
concern should it be day or night. A great
testimony to his endearing nature would be the hundreds of pictures
of his patients that were framed on all the walls in his office. Many
of his patients would continue to be cared for by him through high
school and college if the need arose. His "kids" just did
not want to give him up. Dr. Glover led
a well-balanced life and loved to spend his leisure time enjoying
hunting, fishing, or on the golf course. He was adept as a card
player in bridge or poker. During his
professional career he was a member of the Rotary Club and served on
the board of, at that time, The Citizens and Southern Bank. As a
loyal member of Central Baptist Church he had served as chairman of
the board of deacons and was Deacon Emeritus at the time of his death.
Dr. Glover is
survived by his wife, Margaret Trapnell Glover to whom he was married
Jan. 1, 1938, in Newnan. His children are Harriett Trapnell Glover

an in-depth newspaper article by Winston Skinner. One of his many
nieces, Susan Glover Logan, penned the following memory.
to Uncle Howard
Glover Logan Saturday September 11th,2010 I don't
actually remember the first time I saw him-but he was there at my
delivery into this world-Mother used to tell me that he brought me to
her and teased her that she had a big bouncing boy-then laughing,
admitted that the baby was a girl child. That was a joke between them
that was often repeated and enjoyed every time told. What I do
remember is if I was sick- Uncle Howard would not be long in coming-
He would arrive with his black bag and pull out magical potions that
would make me well again. We were so fortunate-spoiled I guess- we
didn't know what an appointment was- we just called Uncle Howard and
he's say come in the back door of the office. I can close my eyes and
see those back steps and then the long hall with all the photos of
the children he and Uncle Nat had taken care of - in one of the exam
rooms I remember there was a map of a magical kingdom. It was helpful
to look at that rather than the glass cases of instruments and the
silver container that I knew contained the sterile needles. Miss
Emily could give a good shot-it was scary but as I remember it didn't
actually hurt all that much. And Uncle Howard would draw a bird on my
thumb and give me a sucker -off we'd go-all happy again. The last time
I saw him was in the summer of 2009-he was 101. I went by the house
and was greeted by the housekeeper/nurse who assured me that Uncle
Howard and Aunt Margaret would be happy to see me though my visit was
totally unannounced. We went through the house to the breakfast room
next to the kitchen and they were both sitting in chairs-facing each
other. Aunt Margaret was, as always, dressed to perfection-hair done,
makeup on -pearls in place-hands in her lap -her feet crossed at the
ankles while Uncle Howard, clean shaven as usual, was dressed in
casual slacks with a long sleeved blue Oxford shirt. And they were
both sound asleep. When the nurse announced that I was there, they
both raised their heads, opened their eyes and immediately greeted me
with smiles, asking me all about my family. How is your husband,
Bill, and your son, Kevin, they asked. They were on the dollar,
bright as could be. We talked
about family mostly-very little about the usual ailments people
relate-they were interested in telling me about the latest great
grandchild and showing me pictures of all. Just before I left I
remarked that the flowers and the yard were so pretty and they both
rose spontaneously to go to the window. Then they animatedly told me
about the little rabbit. Seems that in the morning there is a rabbit
that comes out of the woods and they traced his path for me-first he
goes to this bush and then he hops over to that flower and see he has
nibbled on this one and then he hops over there. I had to chuckle to
myself-at all of us- standing at the window together peering at the
invisible path of a little rabbit who was not there. But when you are
98 and 101 as they were then-isn't it time to smell the roses and
imagine the little rabbit making his morning run even when he is gone? Uncle Howard,
my sweet Uncle died yesterday. We will miss him- his life was a gift
and we enjoyed having him with us for a long, long time. We were so lucky!

and Wallace Miller Glover and his wife Kay H. Glover; brother and
sister-in-law Mr. and Mrs. John B. Miller of Savannah; sisters-in-law
Winifred G. Klein of Atlanta and Margaret W. Glover of Newnan;
