Thursday service for Nancy Glass of La Honda

 

A memorial service is set for Thursday, March 5, for Nancy Elizabeth Glass of La Honda. Ms. Glass died Feb. 24 at the age of 87.

The service will start at 11 a.m. at the Crippin & Flynn Woodside Chapel, 400 Woodside Road in Redwood City. Interment will follow at Alta Mesa Memorial Park in Palo Alto.


Nancy Elizabeth Glass
Ms. Glass was an active volunteer in La Honda. Among her interests: junior rodeos, the fire brigade and the 4-H Club, according to her family.

She spent most of her working life at Peterson & Alsford, the family's general store (now the San Gregorio General Store). The store dates from 1920.

Nancy Alsford grew up in San Gregorio and attended high school and college on the Peninsula.

She married childhood neighbor Bill Glass and the couple moved to La Honda. She was "an amazing cook," her family said, and loved get-togethers. Ms. Glass was a key participant in the annual crab cioppino fundraiser for the La Honda Fire Brigade.

Her survivors include her son, Michael Glass, daughter Sharon Dooley and three grandchildren.

The family asks that donations be made to the La Honda Fire Brigade, P.O. Box 97, La Honda, CA 94020; or to the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital.
