Norfolk —Linda H. Glaser, 75, was received into heaven on Sunday, October 9, 2016. She was surrounded by the love of her family as she made her passage.

She was born in Rocky Mount, North Carolina and was the daughter of the late Elmo and Carrie Drew Harris. She was preceded in death by her brother E.C. Harris.

Linda was a member of Ohef Sholom Temple and its sisterhood, the Red Hat Society, Elizabeth River Art Club and Suffolk Art League.

She is survived by her loving husband of 55 years, Stanley Glaser of Norfolk, her daughter, Jonna Glaser Ehehalt and her husband John of Norfolk and her son, Benjamin “Kevin” Glaser and his wife Jacqueline of Virginia Beach, her sister, Terrie Wright of Elizabeth City, North Carolina and five grandchildren; Ryan Irving Glaser, Alexandra Bryce Glaser, Austin Ridge Glaser, Joshua Drew Glaser- Wirt and John Gregory Ehehalt, Jr.

Linda, commonly known as Bubbles, was co-founder of Stanley’s Home Furnishings where she worked with her husband and eventually retired. She helped create a thriving business, in addition to a legacy. She loved working with her husband and son, as well as the employees.

Bubbles was an established artist. For 15 years she taught ceramics in conjunction with the Chesapeake Recreation Center. Later she would take her talents to canvas. Her artwork was shown at various shows throughout Hampton Roads. In addition, Bubbles had the singing voice of angels. She sang in churches, in a band and always to her children and grandchildren.

Even though Bubbles was accomplished outside the home, Bubbles would say that her best job was Mom and Grandmother. Her proudest and greatest accomplishment was her family. She loved talking about her daughter’s and son’s business success, but it was her grandchildren that would light up her eyes. She made sure that her house was truly a home.

Bubbles’ most impactful gift to her family and friends was to show compassion to all. She showed love to everyone she met. Her smile never left her face.
