“MAKING GAYLORD BEAUTIFUL”
Joan C. (Prusakiewicz) Glazier, age 64, of Vanderbilt, passed away on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.
She was born in Gaylord on November 29, 1953, the daughter of Bernard and Jeanette (Kurth) Prusakiewicz.
Joan was a cosmetologist for many years and the owner of Joan’s Golden Comb for over 40 years and her passion was, as the slogan goes, “making Gaylord beautiful”. In her free time she loved painting, camping, fishing and an occasional night out at bingo. Her greatest joy, though, came from spending time with her grandchildren.
Joan is survived by her husband, Dale; her children, Greg (Tabitha), Valorie Glazier, Gerrett (Toshia), and Eric (Leslie); her mother, Jeanette Prusakiewicz; her grandchildren, Abraham, Autumn, Elijah, Isaac, Jacob, Ezekiel, Zechariah, Jedediah, Baby Girl, Priscylla, Gabrielle, Mya, Kilea, Chaise, Kennadey, Kamren and Karson; siblings, Michael (Jackie) Prusakiewicz, Jerome (Debra) Prusakiewicz, and Joyce (Charles) Horrigan; many nieces and nephews; and her brother- and sisters-in-law, Wayne (Penny) Glazier, Tam (Ed) McGeshik and Dee (Bill) Thomas.
She was preceded in death by her father, Bernard Prusakiewicz, her sister, Carol Prusakiewicz, her granddaughters, Morgan and Kendahl Glazier and her father- and mother-in-law Mel and Doris Glazier.
