Marsha Ruth Glazier • July 20, 2020
Marsha Ruth Glazier, 74, a life-long Pensacola native, stepped into heaven on Monday, July 20, 2020. Marsha was born on April 15, 1946. She was a graduate of Escambia High School and then earned her Associates degree at Pensacola Junior College. Marsha went on to work at the Escambia County School Board before taking a position at Pensacola NAS/NADEP. She completed avionics school then transferred to Personnel Management at Navy Hospital from which she retired in 2004. Because of her love of work, she became a certified Notary Signing Agent which kept her busy in her retirement years. Marsha delighted in traveling, listening to music by Jim Reeves and Daniel O’Donnell, and spending time with her family, especially meals together and Saints football. She was always actively involved in her local church; she enjoyed singing in the choir and made many special memories with her ensemble group from West Pensacola. Most recently she and her husband, Gary, were attending Olive Baptist – Warrington Campus.
Marsha is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Gary Glazier (originally from Coshocton, Ohio); a daughter, Lisa Glazier; a son and daughter-in-law, Bryan and Sheree Glazier; a grandson, Caleb; and a granddaughter, Riley. She also leaves to cherish her memory her brothers and sisters and their spouses: Johnny and Catherine Torrance of Chesterfield, Virginia; Eddice Hazen of Newport News, Virginia; Cynthia and Bruce Tew of Atlanta, Georgia, and Jerrell Torrance of Milton, Florida; her two sisters-in-law: Barbara Keller of Pensacola, and Annette and Richard of Morris, Illinois; and a host of nieces and nephews. Marsha is preceded in death by her mother Clara Lott Torrance.
Marsha will be laid to rest on Tuesday, July 28 at Pensacola Memorial Gardens.

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live.”
