Glenna L. ("Aunt Glenn") Shepherd (1885-1953): Aunt Glenn gave Shep a giant tie in 8th grade (IGWT), and she bestowed the name "Jean" on Shep's father, according to several radio broadcasts. Married to Thomas John ("Uncle Tom") Manning (1884-1966), who held various odd jobs. They both had Easter dinner at Shep's, where the Bumpus hounds grabbed the ham, and Uncle Tom always gave Shep a dollar ( Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories; Shep's Army).

Think about it, friends. It's not just a possibility. It is a certainty." - Jean Shepherd - 1975
