Norfolk —Sylvia Lerner Glazer, 73, of Charleston, passed away on Wednesday, August 26, 2015 at home.

A retired secondary school teacher from Norfolk, Va., Sylvia moved to Charleston in 1972 and attended Temple Israel.

She was a graduate of the National Cathedral School, Washington, D.C. and William and Mary College, Williamsburg, Va.

Sylvia loved reading, making miniature gardens and spending time with her family.

Although birds and bats terrified her, she had a great love for dogs (especially cute tiny ones), horses and furry animals. She loved updating her Facebook page with seasonal cartoons and book recommendations. Sylvia touched everyone in her life and left her love with all.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 34 years, Frederic Jay Glazer; and her parents, Herman and Dorothy Lerner.

She is survived by her son, Hoyt Glazer (Melanie) of Huntington; daughter, Hilary Glazer (Steve Jones) of Chicago, Ill.; and two grandchildren, Seth and Lydia Glazer.

Graveside services were held at Forest Lawn Cemetery.
