Returning to Pittsburgh in 1964, the Glasson family settled in Fox Chapel, where she lived until early 2012. She was a member and former deacon of Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church and a former president of the Presbyterian University Hospital Aid Society of Pittsburgh and was active in many other community organizations. An advocate for educational opportunities for women, Mrs. Glasson was a member and past president of the Fox Chapel chapter of the Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO). She is survived by her sons, Michael Glasson, Houston, Texas, and Douglas Glasson, Manchester, Mass.; her grandchildren, Gregory, Mark and Elizabeth Glasson; and great-granddaughters, Lauren and Emma Kate. She also is survived by her brothers, Paul and Gerald Hornick,; her sister, Ruth Hornick Ward; daughters-in-law, Dianne Glasson and Patricia Moody; and many nieces and nephews. No visitation.
