Alberta was born in October, 1927 in Stevens Point to the late Albert and Bertha (Paetsch) Wood. She attended the University Training School and graduated from P.J. Jacobs High School in 1945.
While in high school she worked at the Fox Theater and the Lyric Theater. After high school, her position as bookkeeper included what is now Citizen’s Bank and Portage County Oil Company. Later she served the community volunteering at St. Michael’s Hospital.
Alberta married Lawrence Henry Glenzer, Sr. in 1947. They raised their family in Stevens Point and then Plover.
Alberta was a loving wife and mother. At a younger age, she enjoyed traveling to Las Vegas and visiting her daughters. She showed exceptional skills sewing and crocheting for herself, her daughters, and daughters-in-law. She was a talented pianist, a voracious reader and she had many specially chosen clocks, an appreciation learned from her father. Christmas was Alberta’s favorite holiday. She was enthusiastic about baking sweet treats and generous gift-giving. Later in life she enjoyed breakfast at local diners, meeting with friends, and was an avid shopper, sometimes starting her holiday shopping in January. Alberta became a Packer Fan and especially hoped Brett Favre would do great on Sundays.
Alberta is survived by her children: Laurence (Karoleen) Glenzer, Jr., Kurt (Diane) Glenzer, Cynthia Strauss, and Judith Glenzer (Brian). She had six grandchildren: Anne Glenzer, Dawn (Dean) Wroblewski, Laura Aldinger, Laurence (Laura) Glenzer III, Samuel (Blake) Glenzer, and Amanda Glenzer. She had five great-grandchildren: Matthew, Maxwell, Addison, Laurence IV, and Joseph. She had one great-great-grandchild, Navaya. She is further survived by a niece, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her loving sister, Lorraine Kresh; niece, Kathleen Kresh, and son-in-law, Carl Strauss.
