Joyce Glasgow

PLATTSBURGH — Joyce M. Glasgow lost her brave fight with cancer on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013, at the CVPH Medical Center with her loving family by her side. Joyce was the daughter of James and Viola Dow of Fort Covington, N.Y.

From the young girl with pigtails flying and coat unbuttoned, racing down the farmhouse lane just in time for the school bus, to the caring, competent and accomplished woman she became, Joyce was a daughter who made her parents proud. Family was the fabric of Joyce's life. Each life experience was so beautifully intertwined with her sense of humor, wit and inner strength. The saying "home is where the heart is" is so true of Joyce. With a sparkle in her eye and a quick smile, she made family and friends feel they were home in her presence.

She is survived by her loving husband and soul mate of 40 years, Tom; son, Mark Wahl and his wife Theresa; grandson, Michael and wife Amanda, and grandson, Dayne; son-in-law, Michael St. Louis; grandson, Zachary; son, Dayne Wahl and his wife Lisa; granddaughters, Katelin, Haley, and Sydney; daughter, Mary Jo Trombley and her husband Jerry; granddaughters, Amanda and Samantha and her husband Erik; great-grandson, Charlie; son, Thomas Glasgow and his wife Allison; grandson, Thomas (L.T.). She was preceded by her daughter, Julie St. Louis, in April of 1992. Joyce is also survived by her sister-in-law, Barbara Dow and family; her brother, Gerald Dow and his wife Claudette and family; her sisters, Rita Ghostlaw and family, Pat Brunet and family, and Michelle Quenneville and her husband Yves and family.

She is predeceased by her parents; her brother, James Dow; and brothers-in-law, Bruce Ghostlaw and Rene Brunet.

For 32 years, Joyce extended her family through her dedicated commitment to education as a classroom teacher, a reading consultant, and as the principal of the Peru Primary School. During those years, Joyce nurtured and provided unforgettable leadership. The year she retired, Joyce's school family had grown to over 70 faculty and staff and 700 children. Yet, when you walked into the building, the motto "At Peru Primary Everyone Counts" rang clear. Joyce's special touch of unflappable optimism and never-ending positive encouragement was a gift everyone received each day.
