Obituary of Barbara Ann Glassett

Barbara Ann Glassett of North Plainfield passed peacefully on January 15, 2022. 

Barbara grew up in Perth Amboy, the daughter of Charles and Claire (Jones) Beehler. She was educated at St. Mary's of Perth Amboy, graduating in 1953.

She married Robert P. Glassett, also of Perth Amboy, in 1957. They moved to North Plainfield in 1961, growing their family to 4 children. Barbara was employed by St. Joseph's School in North Plainfield for almost 30 years, impacting scores of students, teachers and parishioners. Barbara was also a long time parishioner at St. Joseph's RC Church.

Barbara was a woman of deep faith and conviction, and we know the reception line that greeted her in heaven is both long and illustrious. She was predeceased by her husband, Robert Glassett, her mother Claire Jones Beehler, her father Charles Beehler, grandson Connor Glassett as well as numerous relatives and friends that we know welcomed her home..

Barbara is survived by her children and their spouses Eileen and Brian Keene of Fair Lawn, Theresa and William Clark of Stirling, Robert and Ellen Glassett of Fair Lawn and Kevin and Elise Glassett of Bainbridge, NY, as well as 12 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

A funeral mass will be held on Thursday January 20, 2022 at St. Joseph's R.C. Church in North Plainfield at 10:00 a.m. followed by the burial at Holy Redeemer Cemetery in South Plainfield. A celebration of life service will be scheduled at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations made to any of the following:

The Sisters of Mercy of New Jersey (Watchung, NJ)

Disabled American Veterans 

St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital

The family would also like to thank the kindness of her North Plainfield neighbors, without whom she could not have remained at home for the last few years.

"Well done, good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord". Matthew 25:23
