Jane E. Glassman, 83, psychiatric social worker

Jane E. Glassman, a retired psychiatric social worker, died June 11 of cardiac arrhythmia, at her Homewood residence. She was 83.

A psychiatric social worker, Mrs. Glassman moved to Baltimore in 1981 after retiring from Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston, where she had worked for 12 years.

In Baltimore, she worked in the Johns Hopkins University Office of Counseling and Psychiatric Services on the Homewood Campus, from 1982 until retiring a second time, in 1992.

She also maintained a private practice in Baltimore and volunteered as a group leader for the Lupus Foundation. The former Jane Epstein was born and reared in Chicago where she graduated from Senn High School. She earned her bachelor's degree from Northwestern University in 1937. In 1964, she earned her master's degree in social work from Syracuse University. She taught part-time at the university while working as a counselor at Planned Parenthood.

From 1957 to 1965, she was a psychiatric social worker at the Child Guidance Clinic in Rochester, N.Y., and later worked in Buffalo in a similar capacity. In 1967, she moved to New Haven, Conn., and joined the staff of the Yale University Hospital Guidance Clinic where she supervised and trained graduate students for three years.

She was married in 1941 to Louis Glassman, a social worker, who died in 1971. Separated since 1964, the couple never divorced.

Mrs. Glassman enjoyed attending the theater, concerts at the Lyric and visiting art museums.

There are no services.

She is survived by a son, David A. Glassman of Towson; a daughter, Jean E. Glassman of Boston; and a granddaughter.
