Marilyn Glick Glosserman passed away at her Bethesda home on Oct. 1. She was 74. Born in Chicago to Morde and Betty Glick. Marilyn earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1969. During her last semester of college, she met the love of her life, Michael Glosserman, of Lockhart, Texas, at the UT Law Library. They were married in 1971.
Shortly after their honeymoon, they drove to Washington, D.C., where Michael was an attorney at the Department of Justice. Marilyn found work in the deputy administrator’s office at the newly formed Environmental Protection Agency.
Marilyn was drawn to design, captivated by history and enamored with gardens. She leveraged all of those passions by volunteering as a docent at The Corcoran Gallery of Art and as a guide at the Hillwood Museum and Gardens. She felt fortunate to own homes outside of Washington where she perfected her mastery of garden design and the decorative arts. A passionate reader, she was a member of a book club for 35 years.
Philanthropies she supported included Us Against Alzheimer’s, where she was a board member; the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center; Georgetown Day School and Washington Hebrew Congregation. She was preceded in death by her brother Marshall. Marilyn is survived by her husband, Michael; brother Howard Glick; sons, Marc Glosserman and Scott Glosserman; daughters-in-law, Kristen Glosserman and Macy Raymond Glosserman; grandchildren, Austin, Skye, Jaclyn, Geena, Sam and Vivi; and many sisters and brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and cousins. Donations may be made to Us Against Alzheimer’s. Services entrusted to Sagel Bloomfield Danzansky Goldberg Funeral Care.
