Karon Leigh Glass

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Karon Leigh Glass, an individual who touched the lives of many with warm personality and unwavering kindness. Karon was born on June 15, 1949, in Clifton, Texas, to her loving parents Leighton Frazier and Patti Ann Cannon. She peacefully departed from this world on May 26, 2024, in Waco, Texas.

Karon led a fulfilling career as an administrative assistant at Methodist Children's Home, Carver Charter School, and Central United Methodist Church. Her dedication and passion for helping others shone through her years of fieldwork and home visits for a local health agency. Karon's commitment to serving her community left a lasting impact on all those she encountered.

Education played a significant role in Karon's life. She attended Hamilton High School where she was in the band and served as drum major before becoming one of the first cheerleaders at McLennan Community College. Her thirst for knowledge led her to further her studies at TCU.

In addition to her professional endeavors, Karon embraced various hobbies and interests that brought her joy. She found solace in the outdoors, whether she was running, fishing, or riding as a passenger with her husband on a motorcycle. An avid sports enthusiast, Karon enthusiastically supported all Baylor Bear teams.

Karon will be fondly remembered for her outgoing and friendly nature. To know her was to love her, as she radiated positivity and warmth wherever she went. Her adventurous spirit made every moment spent with her enjoyable and memorable.

Among Karon's proudest accomplishments was being a devoted Christian who found fulfillment in working for the church. Karon was inseparable from her beloved husband Cecil (Butch) Glass. Through thick and thin, they stood side by side - doing everything as a couple.

Karon is survived by her beloved husband Cecil (Butch) Glass; children Adrian Leigh Cortinaz and husband Chris, Leigh Ann McMahan, and Wade Lear; five grandchildren; brother, Rodney F. Cannon and wife Judy; sister-in-law Shirley Adamcik; as well as two nieces and numerous dear friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents Leighton Frazier and Patti Ann Cannon; and sister, Angela Beth. 

Services to honor and remember Karon will be Saturday, June 15, 2024, starting with a Visitation at 1:00 PM followed by a Memorial Service at 2:00 PM at Grace Gardens Funeral Home & Crematorium in Woodway, Texas.

In our hearts forevermore, may Karon Leigh Glass rest in eternal peace knowing she touched countless lives with love and compassion.
