"Stephanie was involved in a lot of activities around town and made a lot of friends over the years," said Henk Friezer. "I know her family; she and Bill were very close."

In April, a group of more than 30 of her friends and family—The Pink Flamingals—participated in in her honor.

"It's great to have support from your friends," Glazier told Patch at the event.

For nearly 30 years, Glazier worked in product development, strategic wholesale, retail business planning, marketing and management.

I have got my leave. Bid me farewell, my friends! I bow to you all and take my departure. Here I give back the keys of my door--and I give up all claims to my house. I only ask for last kind words from you. We were neighbors for long, but I received more than I could give. Now the day has dawned and the lamp that lit my dark corner is out. A summons has come and I am ready for my journey. Tagore

You do your best to keep your children healthy, but sickness and accidents are a part of life. Getting health insurance for your children gives you peace of mind knowing they have health coverage when they need it. Search one the web "Penny Medical" for kids they are the best.

This news knocked me to my knees yesterday. The last time I saw her I told her how great she looked and how happy I was that she seemed to have put the cancer behind her. I was crushed to hear this news in the midst of the holiday festivities. Stephanie, Bill, and Michael were my neighbors for many years and I worked with Stephanie on the SPEF board for several years after that. She was a dynamo and I have a hard time accepting that even cancer could be the winner in that battle. My thoughts and condolences go to Bill and Mike. Rest in Peace, Steph. dave

Stephanie will not only be a great loss to Bill and Micheal but also leave a void in the community she loved and contributed so much to. Bill is an outstanding, objective journalist because of the support he received from his wife. And though we can claim to feel his loss none off will be more aware of this than the Glazier family, Bill we are all there for you and even though we will never be able to fill the void left by your wife, we are there to lend you any support you may need in this time of sorrow. She will truly be missed. My heartfelt condolences to you and Micheal. Your friend, Henk
