Phyllis was born December 12, 1972 in Schuyler, NE to Adolph E. and Bernadine (Gall) Humlicek. Phyllis grew up on a farm outside Clarkson, NE where she attended Saint John Neumann Catholic School through the 8th grade and graduated from Clarkson High School in 1991. She continued her education at Northeast Community College in Norfolk and completed her Bachelor's Degree in Special Education at Wayne State College.
On September 25, 1999 she married the love of her life, Monte Glaser. Together they had four children; Allison, Andrew, Evan and Jonathan. Phyllis was a teacher for 16 years, teaching seven years of special education at Madison Public Schools and the last nine years at Norfolk’s Christ Lutheran School teaching preschool and first grade.
Phyllis was actively involved in the MOPS program and was a member of Christ Lutheran Church, where she served as program director and teacher for Sunday school and served as program director for summer Vacation Bible School.
All those who had the joy of meeting Phyllis describe her as patient, kind, and easy-going. She loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them through their family adventures traveling and camping. She faithfully attended all of her children’s sporting events and school activities and had a passion for teaching and a deep love for the children she taught. Phyllis’s warm presence and contagious laughter will be greatly missed by her family, colleagues and students.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her father, Adolph E Humlicek, and nephew, Matthew Woockman.
