Maryann 'Annie' (Lewis) Glasgow
Glasgow, Maryann "Annie" Lewis 1935-2020 Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can Danny Kaye We celebrate Maryann Lewis Glasgow, who, after a life of love, learning, music, adventure and service to others, passed away peacefully on April 17, 2020. She was smiling to the end; except for her feisty moments. Dementia has its good & bad months/days/minutes. Maryann was born in Meadville, PA on July 18, 1935. Her parents were Mary Tomko, and John Glenn Lewis. She was the eldest child in a family that included her sister. She grew up in PA and NY. Maryann (Annie) attended the University of Rochester, NY. She married Lowell Glasgow on June 16, 1956, the week after she graduated from college with a BA in education. They stayed in Rochester while Lowell completed medical school, and a pediatric residency. They moved their family to Salt Lake City in 1970 where Lowell had accepted a position as Chairman of Microbiology, and later, in 1973, Chairman of Pediatrics at the University of Utah. Maryann was an integral support to her beloved Lowell up until his death from a heart attack at age 49, in February, 1982. In those 12 years in Utah Maryann mothered, taught, volunteered, (UNICEF and Head Start) worked for peace, sang in church choir, traveled with Lowell on medical business trips around the world (Europe, Japan, Nigeria, Soviet Union), threw fabulous parties and earned her Master's in Social Work at the University of Utah. Over the years, Maryann worked in private practice as a licensed clinical social worker in Utah and North Carolina. She served for numerous years as a delegate in International women's peace committees, and taught in Universities around the globe focusing on women's health, education and status, and mental health education in communities. Maryann (Annie) had a beautiful voice and sang on stages all over the world with the Oratorio Society of Utah, and loved being a part of church choirs in NC, UT and at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis. She considered Handel's Messiah to be one of the world's finest pieces of music and her favorite to sing. In 2001 she moved to Roseville MN, to spend a number of happy years with Dr. Dale Anderson, MD on the shores of Lake Owasso. They teamed up to present workshops on humor and healthy aging. When it became clear that she was in the beginning of cognitive decline, she moved to Salt Lake City in 2016 to be cared for by her daughter. Things that gave Maryann (Annie) joy were her family, farmers markets, the MN State Fair, choral music, humor and laughing, art museums, and treasured friends of which there are many. She was so loved. Maryann was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Dr. Lowell Glasgow, MD. She is survived by her children: Russell Glasgow in Cottonwood AZ, Lauren Carlson (Noel) and Scott Glasgow (Paula Almenar) of Salt Lake City, her grandchildren: Dr. Haley Carlson Davis, MD (Ethan) of Durham, NC, Annan Carlson and Milo Glasgow Almenar of Salt Lake City, and her great-grandson Clark Emerson Davis. Also survived by her sister, Sarah 'Sally' Craw (Charles) and nephew, Mathew Schmunk and family.
