Family-Placed Death Notice

GLAZE, Christie Christie Annette Wells Glaze (Chris) Born October 16, 1959, went to be with the lord August 15, 2013. Chris Glaze was born in Atlanta Georgia and grew up in Texas, New Jersey and Georgia. She attended Peachtree High School in Chamblee, Ga (now Dunwoody), where she played flute in the high school band, and where she met her future husband, Jeff. Christie was a member of Kingswood United Methodist Church in Dunwoody, where she nurtured her deep Christian faith and encouraged others in their spiritual journey. She was active in her Sunday school and was a frequent volunteer for the church's VBS. Christie played in Kingwood's wind ensemble for years. Christie was severely injured in an auto accident in 1978 while a student at DeKalb Community College. Her spirit of determination and drive served her well in her recovery and rehabilitation, and in the ensuing years of surgery and pain management. When told she would never walk again, she redoubled her efforts in physical therapy. She was always a model patient, exceeding the doctors' expectations, and inspiring others around her to never give up. In 1980, Christie walked down the aisle at Kingswood UMC to marry Jeff Glaze. When told she would never have children, Christie worked hard to prove that wrong. After sixteen years, the Glazes were blessed with the miracle birth of their daughter Julianne. Julianne was the love of her life and her reason for hope. Christie was a lifetime member of the Girls Scouts, and enjoyed being a leader beginning in Julianne's Daisy and Brownie years. Christie was also a habitual reader and writer. She enjoyed reading inspirational fiction, scrapbooking, and journaling. She also enjoyed giving gifts she knew would bring a joyous smile to those she held dear. Chris Glaze was preceded in death by her brother Kenneth Miles Wells; her grandparents Harold Miles Wells, Sr. and Mamie Williams Wells; Farris Boyd and Emily Davis Boyd. She is survived by her husband of 33 years, Jeffrey Lee Glaze and daughter Julia Annette Glaze (Julianne) of Doraville, GA; her parents, Harold Miles Wells and Charlotte Annette Boyd Wells of Lawrenceville, Ga; brother Kevin Boyd Wells and his wife Holly Wells of Nicholson, Ga. The family will receive friends on Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at Crowell Brothers Funeral Home. Funeral Services will be held on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 2:00pm at Kingswood United Methodist Church, Dunwoody, GA. A reception will follow after the service. Interment will follow at Winters Chapel United Methodist Church, Dunwoody, GA. Arrangements by Crowell Brothers Funeral Home, 5051 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, Norcross, GA 30092. 770-448-5757

Dear Hal, Charlotte, Jeff, and family,

David and I were shocked to hear of Christie's passing. David told me how he can remember the day when she was born, and he has very special memories of when she first started to walk as a toddler, because she was holding his Lassie wallet. She was the very first baby he ever got to hold when he was a young boy.

I remember meeting Christie at our wedding thirty-nine years ago, and I know she was the joy of Aunt Mamie's and Uncle Harold's hearts.

We also remember the nightmare of the accident and her fight to live. That Christmas was *so* special when David's parents got the phone call that she had opened her eyes. How we rejoiced!

And then Christy proved those doctors wrong by getting herself up on her feet and walking again. In those days they did not have a lot of the rehabilitation knowledge that is available now. It was her sheer grit and determination to be independent and mobile that got her through.

When she walked down the aisle on her wedding day, I don't think there was a dry eye anywhere in the church. Watching her meet Jeff at the altar was an extremely moving moment. I remember thinking what a remarkable, determined young woman she was.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you mourn her passing, but we rejoice in the life that she lived so well.
We are also so very grateful that she knew the Lord as her personal Savior, and we rejoice in the fact that there will be a reunion one day with her there in heaven. Even now, she is worshiping the Lord with all of her grandparents and her brother.

May our Lord wrap His loving arms around you all and hold you close during this time. We have been and will continue to remember you in our thoughts and prayers.

With our love,
Merri and David Williams
