Louise Marie (Lund) Glaser, 91, of Springfield, passed away on Saturday, May 13, at Friends Care Community in Yellow Springs. Born on Feb. 19, 1926, and raised in Corning (Brooks), Iowa, she was the beloved eldest daughter of Albert and Blanche (Windom) Lund.
Her pride, passion and greatest joy was in her large family. They were her whole world and she devoted her life to them. By example, she taught her children and grandchildren to make memories by placing value on simple moments, by treasuring our loved ones and making the most of each of our days. Her kind and gentle soul will forever enrich this world.
Louise graduated from Corning High School and the American Institute of Business in Des Moines, Iowa. She then came to Ohio and worked at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. After raising her family, she later worked at Linardos Village. For over 50 years, Louise was a member of Story-Hypes United Methodist Church. Louise was an accomplished watercolor artist. She loved to sing and was a long-time member of the Clark State Community Chorus. She was an amazing cook and seamstress, and an avid email enthusiast. She continually shared her many gifts for the benefit of others. So many will always remember her never-ending sense of humor and her profound devotion to others.
Louise leaves behind her large, loving family of four daughters and three sons: Sherry (Michael) Gardner, of Marshfield, Mass.; Mark (Marla) Glaser, of Springfield; Mary (Bob) Ellis, of Springfield; Christopher Glaser, of Yellow Springs; Carolyn (Rob) Hackwell, of Stowe, Vt.; Melanie (Phil) Pitstick, of Xenia; and Patrick (Jennie) Glaser, of Springfield. She leaves 16 grandchildren and their spouses, 19 great-grandchildren, many special nieces and nephews and friends she gathered over a lifetime. She was preceded in death by her sister, Shirley Anderson, of Nebraska; sister Jacqueline Mullin, of New Jersey; brother Paul Lund, of Iowa; and grandson Christian Hackwell, of Ohio.
A celebration of her life will be held at High Street United Methodist Church at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 20, with the Rev. Steven Fewell officiating. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make memorial contributions to Friends Care Center, 150 Herman St., Yellow Springs, OH 45387. Services will also be held at her beloved home in Corning, Iowa.
