November 2017 by Staff
1947 - 2017
Nancy Glenn of Action Mining Services passed away on September 22, 2017 of natural causes. Nancy had been a key part of Action Mining ever since it incorporated in 1979. She worked there with her husband Mike, and their daughter Jessica who joined them in 2005. Nancy also ran Popular Mining magazine throughout the 1980s and 1990s until it’s last issue in 1996.
Action Mining is a long-time advertiser, so we here at ICMJ have had the pleasure of working with Nancy for almost three decades. We’ve always known Nancy to be very easy-going, friendly, and very sharp. We are saddened by her passing.
Nancy will be greatly missed by many, including her family, all of those at Action Mining and by all who knew and had the pleasure of working with her. She was a wonderful person, wife, mom and grandmother!

Sondra was known as one to share her knowledge with all. She touched the lives of countless individuals. She earned the respect and confidence of those around her and left the world a better place. She is greatly missed.

The Philippine archipelago, with over 7,000 islands that stretch for 1,100 miles north-south, was settled by Malaysians several thousand years ago. Ferdinand Magellan landed and was killed there in 1521. Spaniards took over the islands in 1571, and founded Manila, which is located on a large natural harbor. After the Spanish-American war in 1898, the United States took over the Philippines, and found itself in a brutal 6-year war before gaining control of all of the islands.
