Betty Jean Glanz

Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend
Betty Glanz of Burien, Washington went to be with the Lord after a battle with cancer at the young age of 57.
Betty is the loving wife of Terry Glanz and mother of Leah Glanz who have shared the love and friendship we can only dream of.
Betty is the daughter of reverend Joseph and Alice Overstreet. She also leaves behind two brothers, Harold and J.J. Overstreet.
Betty has many nephews and nieces along with friends and co-workers that believe Betty’s smile and humor will be treasured for a lifetime and greatly missed.
Betty was born in Douglas, Wyoming on September 4, 1956. She was raised in the Assemblies of God church. She was blessed with the gift of music, playing piano and singing in the church, even as an adult.
Betty met her soul mate in Alaska in 1979 as co-workers. They married soon after and gave birth to their only daughter, Leah, one year later while living in Seattle. After several years the family moved to Anchorage, Alaska, where Betty was offered a job with a law firm, spending much of her time focused on the Valdez oil spill case. In 1996 the family picked up roots and returned to Seattle, Washington. Soon after, Betty was hired with the Highline School District. She lent her smile to the front desk of Human Resources.
Her passions included music (paying piano, singing), enjoying the beach, where she could listen to the waves and spend hours collected the smallest of shells. She adored the water, vacationing in placed like Cancun, Lake Tahoe, Hawaii and Florida with her family and friends. The spring season brought her joy, the change in the air and blooming flowers. Betty took every opportunity to spoil her only daughter, Leah. Her husband and daughter were her best friends and the light of her life.
From a young age Betty had a close relationship with the Lord. She lived by the Fruit of the Spirit and everyone that knew Betty would agree that she lived by Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control. Galatians 5:22
God called his angel home on July 25, 2014.
