Barbara "Babs" Glazer


Barbara "Babs" Glazer was born in KCMO on 1.30.45 to John and Helen Maggio.  She was preternaturally intelligent, occasionally irreverent & unfalteringly stylish. An accomplished backgammon and poker player, Barbara's confidence and personality took her on amazing adventures and placed her in the company of the famous and infamous. She rescued and loved many lucky cats and one fortunate dog.  She was a scratch cook and remained an unapologetic food snob to the very end.


She is preceded in death by her father, mother and beloved younger brother, Joe.  She leaves behind her devoted sister, Sue Singleton (Phil), and daughter, Stacy Glazer, along with legions of fans & many close, life-long friends.

Barb and I have been friends for many years through her relationship with my brother. We often hung out together when I lived in Las Vegas and shared meals, conversations, and football games! After I moved to Florida, our conversations continued. We laughed and cried together many times. Barb's perspective on life and her sharing of anecdotal events always made my day. I loved her forthright observations and her candidness. She was a loyal and true friend. She was a cheerleader with her encouragement and support! I miss being able to pick up my phone to talk with her or to text back and forth during a football game. She was loved and will be missed terribly.
