Times West Virginian
Marie Glover Hartlieb, 97, died at her home at Orlando Lutheran Towers, Orlando, Fla., on Aug. 16, 2013.
She was born on Aug. 8, 1916. She was the granddaughter of A.M. Glover, sheriff of Marion County from 1917 to 1921, and Alice Sellers. Her parents were Roy H. Glover and Addie Leezer Glover, who lived much of their lives in Barrackville.
Marie’s husband of 72 years, Julian Hartlieb, died on June 12, 2012. She also was pre-deceased by a sister, Virginia Glover, and a brother, Robert M. Glover.
She is survived by a sister, Doris Glover Davis of Culloden; a daughter, Judith Hartlieb Reed and husband Marvin of Hempstead, N.Y.; a son, John Hartlieb and wife Kathi of Whitefish, Mont.; three grandchildren, Michael A. Reed and wife Shannon of Glendale, Calif., Alison Reed Schneider and husband Michael of Clayton, Mo., and Nancy Hartlieb Johnson and husband Scott of Cumming, Ga.; as well as seven great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins of the Hartlieb and Glover families.
Born in Marion County, Mrs. Hartlieb resided in Marion County until 1960, aside from the World War II years when she, her husband and their first child resided in Baltimore, Md. She was a 1932 graduate and valedictorian of Barrackville High School. She worked for many years at the Marion County Courthouse.
In 1960, the family moved to Orlando, Fla. Once there, Marie soon found employment as a bookkeeper in the insurance industry until her retirement in 1983. In their 60s and 70s, Marie and Julian enjoyed numerous trips to Europe.
After moving to Orlando, Marie became a devoted member of the First Presbyterian Church of Orlando and a regular volunteer there. In very recent years, she attended services at the 18th-floor chapel of Orlando Lutheran Towers, her retirement home.
Attendance at her Aug. 21 memorial service at the chapel reflected her extensive friendships at OLT, and throughout the Orlando area. Interment for Marie and Julian was at Glen Haven Memorial Park in Winter Park, Florida.
Memorial gifts in memory of Mrs. Hartlieb and her husband, Julian, may be made to the Orlando Lutheran Towers Foundation at 300 East Church St., Orlando, FL 32801.
