/September 11, 2013 Sarah Glaze September 3, 1922 - September 1, 2013 Sarah Glaze of OvJlla, TX, formerly of Wichita Falls died September 1. She was born September 3, 1922 in Wellington, TX to Robert Terrell and Bertie Ann Hammett. In 1943, Sarah married the love of her life, Wallace Glaze. After that, they lived in California for 39 years in the towns of Brawley and Julian. They were married 42 wonderful years before his passing in 1985. Sarah worked at home as a seamstress for many years. She .enjoyed her work and sewing for the people she loved. She will be remembered for the things she made, but especially for her many acts of kindness. She was a modern day Dorcas (Acts 9:39). When Sarah was born in 1922, her family lived in a Covered wagon. Her father was a horse trader. When she reached school age, her father got a job managing the wagon yard at a hotel in Anton, TX, so the family settle there. In 1933 when Sarah was 11 years old, her father took a herd of horses to sell in Round Rock and never returned, leaving her mom to raise four young children by herself. Although the family did receive a few letters from him years later, Sarah never knew what caused her father to desert his family. After that her mother moved her four children to near Seymour to be close to the family. At the age of 14, Sarah dropped out of high school to help the family by cleaning homes. When she was 19, her best friend, Myrtle Glaze, introduced Sarah to her cousin, Wallace Glaze. It was love at first sight. They married July 17, 1943, and had an excellent marriage lasting almost 42 years. As Wallaces's sister commented, "Wallace was a better man because of Sarah". After Wallace returned from the war, they moved to Brawley, California, where Wallace worked in the hay-fields. There they started a family with a son, Bill, who was born in 1947 and a daughter, Judy, born in 1952. During that time, Sarah worked at home as a seamstress. She was always active in her church and taught children's Sunday school there. The family moved to Julian, CA in 1961 where Wallace was employed by the California Department of Forestry until retiring in 1980. After his retirement they moved to Wichita Falls so that Sarah could be near her relatives, and lived happily there until her dear husband died in 1985. Following his death, Sarah continued to work at home on crafts and quilts. She remained active in her church (the Wichita Falls Church of Christ) and received great support from her many friends there. She enjoyed travelling to visit relatives, and living independently. But dementia began to invade her life and so in 2011, she went to live with her daughter and son-in-law in Ovilla, TX. Even though she became increasingly limited in mobility, she continued to have a cheerful outlook and enjoyed many new friends in her new neighborhood. The highpoint of her week was always Sunday evening when Ken and Judy would take her to the Ovilla Church of Christ. Sarah experienced great hardship and many heart breaks in her life, but she never let those events darken her outlook on life. She is an example of someone who chose to be happy in spite of everything. She also had an amazing work ethic, and was loved by the people she worked for. Abraham Lincoln said, "The better part of one's life consists of his friendships." Sarah's friendships were the substance of her life. She knew how to make a friend and how to be a friend. She was always there for people. And if you were her friend, you were a friend for life. One of the women whose house Sarah cleaned at age 14 kept in touch with her for the rest of her life. In addition, Sarah remained in contact with several friends from WW II army bases, former sewing customers, church friends from California and even her children's elementary school teachers. For all of us who knew her, she will live on in our memories as a true friend. May her name be a blessing. Sarah is survived by a brother Charles Hammett and wife Joyce of Wichita Falls; a son, Bill Glaze and wife Janie of Canyonville, Oregon; a daughter, Judy Ray and husband Ken of Ovilla, TX; and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

World rights reserved. Helping Children Succeed In School (NAPSA)-The first five years of life are the years of learning that shape kids' futures, child care experts advise. That's why health screenings are so crucial to future success-and why many parents are pleased to learn about an easy and effective way to make sure their little ones are ready for school. Free access to an online health screening for kids 5 and under is available from Easter Seals. Parents and caregivers can take the online health survey and share the results with a pediatrician or other health care provider at well-baby checkups and back-to-school doctor visits. The screening takes about 20 minutes and can show whether kids are meeting their milestones and are developing on track. Why It's Important More than a million children with unidentified delays and disabilities enter school every year. These health issues put them far behind their peers and have a lasting, negative effect on their ability to meet their full potential. The good news: Kids with delays, disabilities and autism can make significant progress if they get support early in life. Explains Dr. Patricia Wright, National Director of Autism Services, Easter Seals: "Thanks to the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, the Ages & Stages Questionnaires [ASQ] is now available on Easter Seals' Make the First Five Count website to make sure children are achieving their developmental milestones during the important first five years of life and are ready for kindergarten-and what to do if they're not." As the nation's largest nonprofit provider of early intervention services, Easter Seals knows what's possible when kids get the support they need.., and what happens when they don't. What Else You Can Do Regardless of how your youngsters develop, there are ways to help them develop a love of learning: Read to them. In young children, it nurtures an interest in language, words and communication. Play word games. Encourage children to write original stories and illustrate them with their own drawings. Show them the value of math by making connections to everyday life with "teachable math moments," from cutting slices of pizza to getting gas for the car. Praise your children's academic progress. Tell them that you are proud of their efforts. When students are confident in their abilities, they enjoy learning.
