Suzanne K. Glover, development firm co-owner

October 17, 2008

Suzanne K. Glover, co-founder of a Columbia development company, died of cancer Sunday at the Glenwood home of a daughter. She was 73.

Suzanne "Sue" Kreyns was born in Pearl River, N.Y., and raised in Red Bank, N.J. She was a 1953 graduate of Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School and earned a bachelor's degree in marketing from the University of Arizona in 1958.

She was married in 1957 to Earl Gettens Glover, who also was a student at the University of Arizona.

The couple lived in the South and the Northeast before moving to Columbia in 1974 and establishing General American Real Estate and Development Inc.

"They were the principal developer of condominium conversions in Columbia and at Cross Keys in Baltimore," said a daughter, Suzanne Glover O'Melia of Glenwood.

Local projects included Watermark Place, a luxury high-rise condominium in Columbia, and the Glen Meadows retirement community in Glen Arm.

The couple sold the business in the 1990s and retired.

Mrs. Glover, a longtime Columbia resident, enjoyed knitting scarves and reading novels. She also liked cooking and entertaining family and friends.

Services will be held at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow at Witzke Funeral Home, 5555 Twin Knolls Road in Columbia.

In addition to her husband and daughter, Mrs. Glover is survived by a son, Philip Earl Glover of Columbia; two other daughters, Stephanie Sue Glover and Cheri Anne Glover, both of Columbia; a brother, Piet Kreyns of Bethel Park, Pa.; 12 grandchildren; and two great-granddaughters.
