November 9, 2022


Honey Lou Deering Glasscock, beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed from this life in the comfort of the home she cherished and surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, at age 94.

A liturgy mass will be held at St. William Catholic Church Wednesday, November 16, at 1:00 p.m., with visitation with the family beginning at 11:30 a.m. Burial will follow in Willow Mount Cemetery.

She was born January 26, 1928, in Nashville, Tennessee, to Sara Vance Williams Deering and Artie McClellan Deering and lived in Shelbyville her entire life. She was a founding member of St. William Catholic Church in Shelbyville as a young girl in the early 1940s.

A long-time employee of Carolyn’s dress shop, she was dedicated for over 30 years to sharing her eye for design and beauty, serving the public, and enjoying friendships throughout the community. Her sweet, fun-loving spirit will be deeply missed by friends and family.

She was preceded in death by a young son, Barry Glasscock, and by her husband, Burnard Glasscock, following 64 years of marriage. She is survived by her daughters, Janice Ann Glasscock and Mary Katharine Glasscock Ray, and by her son-in-law, Daniel Ray; five adoring granddaughters Suzanne Thompson (Robert Thompson), Caroline Berry (Stanley Berry), Hannah McCall (Ben McCall), Lauren Booth (Grant Booth), and Sarah Ray; and five great-grandchildren, Raylan McCall, Guerin Thompson, Elliott Berry, Sutton Thompson, and Eliza Berry.

Memorials may be made to St. William Catholic Church, Shelbyville-Bedford County Public Library, the Good Samaritan Fund in Shelbyville, or Alive Hospice, to which the family expresses heartfelt thanks for their remarkable care.

Feldhaus Memorial Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements.
