Debbie Golden Glazer, age 63, passed away May 6, 2018.
A long-time Dunwoody resident, she was born in Des Moines, Iowa, and grew up in Austin, Texas.
She graduated from the University of Texas in 1976 with a B.S. in nursing and eventually moved to Houston where she worked as a kidney transplant coordinator at Hermann Hospital and and advanced to head nurse-supervisor in the renal epartment. She was a member of the Board of Directors of The National Kidney Foundation of S.W. Texas and the Grievance Committee of the State Bar of Texas District 4-A.
She married and relocated to Atlanta in 1990 and worked at Northside Hospital Hospital as employee health supervisor for 27 years and retired in early 2018. She was beloved by her patients and staff, and considered them family.
In 2005 she was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease, Transverse Myelitis with unknown origin or cure. After rehab at the Shepherd Center she was able to return to work and see her boys—the light of her life-at school activities, sports, especially baseball at Murphey Candler Little League, where she was a member of the auxiliary board for many years and was honored in 2005 with the Dugout Yearbook dedication.
She was especially proud to be able to attend her sons graduation from Dunwoody High and then The University of Georgia and watching them grow up to be the fine young men they’ve become. This was such a joy for her, and helped make the pain go away just a little.
Debbie was the sweetest, most unselfish and loving human being on the planet, she rarely had a harsh word, never wanted to burden anyone with her medical issues and pain. She lived her life with courage, dignity, compassion and love. Now she is pain free, with the angels and will always be in our hearts.
She was pre-deceased by her mother, Patricia Golden Ferris and father, Allen Golden.
Survivors include her loving family, husband Jerry Glazer; sons: Stephen Glazer, Atlanta and David Glazer, Roswell; sister and brother-in-law, Elyse and Ken Blair, Birmingham; brother and sister-in-law, Bruce and Sharon Golden, Austin, Texas; and Allen’s wife, Martha Golden; and so many loving aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews and friends.
