Anna K. "Honey" Glebas, a retired Baltimore garment worker, died Tuesday of multiple organ failure at Stella Maris Hospice. She was 94.

Anna Eva Kleinota, the daughter of immigrant tailors from Lithuania, was born in Baltimore and raised on South Paca Street.

She was a graduate of Southern High School and had worked for more than 40 years as a seamstress for Stetson Dee and the Haas Tailoring Co. before retiring in 1973.

She married Charles Glebas, a tailor, in 1934, and for many years the couple lived on Bateman Avenue in Windsor Hills. He died in 1969.

Mrs. Glebas enjoyed trips to Hollywood on the Severn and Ocean City, as well as many automobile vacations across the nation.

Mrs. Glebas, an accomplished cook who enjoyed preparing traditional Lithuanian and American cuisine, would "pack her best kitchen knives and other culinary implements," said her daughter, Yvonne Gurney of Kensington, when visiting her grandchildren in Hawaii or the Cayman Islands.

"She leaves an important legacy to her descendents of a strong, hard-working woman who provided well for her family using very little, never complaining that she didn't have enough," her daughter said.

Mrs. Glebas was a communicant of St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church, 114 W. Saratoga St., where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. Monday.

Also surviving are two sons, Charles J. Glebas of Ocean City and Edward R. Glebas of Hydes; eight grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.
