Sally Annetta Glauser, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother returned to her Heavenly Home on October 29, 2023, at the age of 92.
She was born on March 25, 1931, in Taylor, Idaho to Chester and Lana Taylor. She was the youngest of eight children, Donald, Berniece, Fern, Maudell, Jay, Hazel, Jack and Sally. She is survived by her brother, Jack Taylor.
She graduated from Idaho Falls High School in 1949 and attended Utah State University. In 1951, while attending Utah State she met the love of her life, Kenneth Glauser. They were sealed in the Idaho Falls Temple on July 23, 1952. She graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Home Economics Education in 1953.
Mom and Dad were blessed with seven children, four sons and three daughters. Their posterity includes children, Douglas Glauser (Kathleen-deceased) (Marcia), Redlands, California; Vicki Jackman (Brad), Orem, Utah; Janet Mitchell-Kahmann (Tony), Perth, Australia; David Glauser (Leisa), Herriman, Utah; Lisa Hardy (Scott), Idaho Falls, Idaho; Paul Glauser (Karen), Perry, Utah; Mark Glauser (Lynda), East Layton, Utah; 43 grandchildren; 98 great-grandchildren.
Mom and Dad shared a passion and a deep testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our home was filled with love for the scriptures, family prayer, home evening, and FUN! Church service was a big part of their life. Mom served in many callings including Primary, Young Women and Relief Society. After retirement, Mom and Dad served two full-time missions in the England London Mission and the Fiji Suva Mission. They also served as ordinance workers in the Ogden Utah Temple.
Throughout her life, Mom’s first and foremost priority was her family. She was a stay-at-home mom for most of her married life, and with Ken raised their seven children. She was an accomplished cook and homemaker and made the best homemade bread and apple pie in the world. She later attended Utah State to get her teaching certificate and taught grade school in the Ogden School District until she retired.
The home was a sanctuary of safety and security where the children were loved and valued. Individual talents of the children were encouraged and supported. Mom always had a positive attitude and helped her children to know they could accomplish anything.
Mom was a light to everyone she touched, she served diligently loving and helping others at every opportunity. She loved the scriptures and modeled her life after the many examples of good in the scriptures. She taught her children the importance of love and compassion for others and always had a positive outlook on life.
Mom knows and loves the Savior. She has a firm testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith and living prophets.
