Susan Marsh Glicoes died peacefully at home on November 11, 2020, in Fairfax, VA, surrounded by family. She is survived by her husband, Laurence Glicoes, daughter Jen Glicoes, sons Jonathan Glicoes and Daniel Glicoes and grandchildren Arete and Christopher Glicoes. She proudly served in the Army, reaching the rank of Major, and then received a certification as a paralegal. Throughout her careers, she always put family first. For many years, Sue was a daily visitor at her mother’s retirement home, striving to make her mother as comfortable as possible. When not with her mother, she supported her children through dedicated involvement in athletic and drama boosters. She also never failed to offer a ride home to anyone who needed it, despite the capacity of the car. Sue lived in Panama, Florida, Illinois, New York, Germany and Virginia over her lifetime, but wherever she was, she took her bright enthusiasm with her. Her caring nature was legendary from baby showers she organized for neighbors, to caring for a friend of her son who was horribly ill after a long international flight. Throughout her life, Sue constantly thought of others even to the very end when she was still trying to distribute her possessions to family members. Memories of her generous spirit will live on.

Sue filled my childhood with fun and exciting visits both when she would come to Newfoundland or we would set off to see her in the US. I looked forwards to our decorating, craft times and of course shopping. Her generosity was to no end. She once knit and sent blankets to us in California so the little girls I nannied could tuck their babies in at night.

Her family books will be something the Russell family will cherish forever.

Love to everyone in Glicoes family from Newfoundland

I have no trouble bringing cousin Sue to mind. She was one of the most vibrant people I have known. Sue would blow into Newfoundland like a weather event from the Eastern Seaboard. She practically vibrated with her love of the place. I cannot think of her without a smile and with much gratitude for being such a generous warm human being towards all of us.

I had the pleasure of working with Sue at Thomas Jefferson High School. Whenever my Soccer Team needed help, Sue was always there for us. Sue was one of our most valuable team members. Always with a smile and respected by everyone.

Sue and Larry also became part of my family's annual New Years Eve party . So many wonderful memories .

Sue was a special lady.

Sincerely,

Norm Braverman

We were with our son in the hospital and we needed help with our daughter who was close to turning two years old. She happily agreed.

Anabel was napping when Sue transitioned into help. We were nervous that our daughter might be scared, as we were unsure how much our daughter really knew Sue; plus waking up alone with her at her young age.

She woke to Sue sitting in her room and Anabel happily screamed “Cat Mama!”

We should have never doubted Sue’s energy and presence. Sue was many things to many people forever adding cat mama to the list.

To my dear forever friend,
It seems we have known each other much longer than the 40 years it’s been since we met in Bayonne, NJ. My, those were the days weren’t they? We were in our late twenties, I with a young family and you planning one. We redecorated each other’s military quarters/apartments, shopped, and made day long commissary and PX runs to Ft. Monmouth. Always enjoying a glass of wine together at days end. On to Germany from there, where we were stationed just a 3-4 hour drive from each other. Our families spent many weekends together over those 3 years. We both returned to VA living in close proximity where our friendship continued to flourish. Military retirement required me to move several times since then but you were lucky to stay put. We talked, e-mailed, texted and visited often throughout the years. We were there for each other no matter the physical distance separating us. Always thoughtful and kind, you attended weddings, showers and our family gatherings. Rachelle and Margaux do not know of life without your positive, happy, bigger than life presence.
You were my rock, my confidant, and my best friend. I can only hope to emulate your giving spirit and caring personality. I love you so much.
Farewell my dear friend.
Ann

Larry and family, we’re so sorry to hear about Sue. Having worked with you for so many years as your friends at LMI, we’re both wishing there could be a way to make things easier for you right now. Please know that we and many others truly feel for you.

Dear Glicoes Family please accept my most heartfelt condolences on the passing of Sue. I had the pleasure of meeting Sue at a few of the LMI holiday parties but heard so much about her through Larry over the years. She will certainly leave a void in the hearts of many. Sending prayers for the entire family as you mourn your loss.

Sue was a kind and giving person. When she found out that I was from Georgia she gave me a wonderful bracelet with charms from the state. She once helped me with a bridal shower at the last minute. She was always cheerful and helpful. I will miss her. It was obvious that she loved and cherished her family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

It is with sadness that I extend my condolences to the family and friends of Susan Glicoes. I was sorry to hear of her passing, I will remember her fondly. When I first met Susan, she had a creative eye and was working part time as a photographer for Auto Trader. I know that she spent her life as a devoted mother to her children Daniel, Jonathan, and Jen, as well as her grandchildren. She was a constant companion to her devoted husband Larry. I remember working with her years ago on football programs for Thomas Jefferson school for Science and Technology, where her youngest son attended. Over the years we stayed connected through social media and I loved reading her opinionated, funny, and informative posts. I learned that she was a collector, was interested in hockey and had a talent for handmaking beautiful throws. She impressed me with how well she took care of her mother especially after her mother’s retirement residency transitioned into extended care, I think Susan visited her mother every week until her mother died – that amount of respect is so inspirational. Sadly, one of Sue’s last posts showed the impact that her illness had taken on her body. That picture was hard to see, but it was a reflection of the amount of strength and resilience that she had inside. It is hard to comprehend things that others go through, my prayer is that Susan is at peace and that her soul is in harmony with eternal life. To all that read this, please accept my sincere sympathies at the loss of such a special person, may she forever rest in power.
