According to Edna Glenn on her recent 94th birthday, the key to longevity and happiness is, “The good Lord and staying in his presence.“

The Jefferson City native, who returned to her hometown after living in Florida for many years, was feted by family members in her Life Care Center dwelling. The surprise party included a couple of cakes, flowers, gifts of jewelry and plenty of her favorite color, purple.
