Hilah Glaze, a mother of five and a former Miss Morgan State, died Aug. 21 of a heart infection at St. Agnes Hospital. She was 83.

Hilah Brown, the sixth of 10 children of a homemaker and a mail carrier, was born in Baltimore and raised in Upton.

After graduating from St. Frances Academy in 1946, she attended Morgan State. Mrs. Glaze was an active and prominent figure on campus, joining the majorettes and Delta Sigma Theta sorority, and being crowned "Miss Morgan" in 1950. She graduated the next year with a major in English.

That same year, she married Jackson G. Glaze. Mr. Glaze died in 2001.

Mrs. Glaze was a longtime resident of Fairmount Park and spent her time as a homemaker and raising five children. She loved to entertain and cook.

"All of my friends would want to come over to eat," said her son, Mark Glaze of Ellicott City. "Nobody ever left hungry."

She was known for her sugar cookies, which she gave as gifts during the holidays. She kept the recipe a secret.

Services are at 1 p.m. Saturday at St. Cecilia's Roman Catholic Church, 3300 Clifton Ave.

In addition to her son, Mrs. Glaze is survived by four other children: Marty Glaze of Hanover, Jackie Wallace and Lisa Hunt of Charlotte, N.C., and Renee King of Hunting Ridge;13 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
