“To God Be The Glory For The Things He Has Done.”

Those were always the words spoken by former State Senator Mary Anita Groves Bland whenever she conclud- ed any public presentation or before she began speaking.

Those words will be always be remembered as Senator Bland is laid to rest on Satur- day, March 5 at Lincoln cem- etery.

Senator Bland died Friday, Feb. 19, after suffering several seizures related to her Alzheim- er’s disease in hospice care in Chattanooga, Tenn., where she was living with her daughter Arletha Bland Manlove and son-in-law, Jon Manlove.
