Billie Morris Glantz, 93, was born July 9, 1924 in Bixby, Oklahoma. She passed away peacefully March 12, 2018 in Barrington, Illinois.
Billie, her twin sister Bobbie, and siblings grew up on an oil lease in rural Oklahoma, which provided wonderful stories of their adventures. Throughout her life Billie loved to sing. In high school her quartet won a state championship. Billie was involved in her local Lutheran church congregation, including Lutheran Church of the Atonement in Barrington.
