Obituary of Dawn J. Glagola

Dawn J. Glagola, born May 13, 1951, passed away peacefully on January 22, 2022 surrounded by her husband, children and grandchildren, after a very long battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis and subsequent lung disease.

She is survived by her husband and love of her life, Timothy Glagola; her children, Brian (Mary) Glagola, Dana (Nick) Welch, and Kevin Glagola; and her grandchildren, Rylee Glagola, Mykal Glagola, Tyler Welch, and Lauren Welch.  She is also survived by her sister, Shaun Craig-Loy; her brother, Mykal Anderson; and her biological father, James Mercier.

Dawn was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Gloria Anderson; a brother, Robert A. Anderson; and her mother and father-in-law, Charles and Evelyn Glagola.

Dawn’s biggest joy in life was her children and grandchildren and the weekly family dinners that were sadly interrupted due to Covid.  She loved her pets, her parrots, and her dogs, Brody and Murphy, and the ones she has lost over the years.

Special thanks to Dr. Sosenko, her Rheumatologist, Dr. Walsh and the doctors at Midwest Respiratory, Dr. Ramaduri at Heartland, and the compassionate staff at Amita St. Joseph Medical Center and Lightways Hospice Home.

Donations to Lightways Hospice Home would be greatly appreciated if one so desired.

As per Dawn’s request, cremation wishes were honored and there will be no visitation.
