We are saddened to say a great Democratic leader, Diane Glasser, passed away early Tuesday morning at the age of 89. Diane entered the world of Democratic activism with a passion. Throughout her long career in the Democratic Party she was a local Democratic Club President, and was a founding member of the Tamarac/Sawgrass Democratic Club. Diane was elected State Committeewoman on six occasions, and served as representative of Broward County at the Florida Democratic Party. She also served as a representative of the state of Florida in the capacity a member of the Democratic National Committee for 24 years.
Diane was also an early fighter for social justice, and spoke out for those who could not speak for themselves. Specifically, she spoke out on both Black and LGBTQ issues in a time where these views were not widely held. Diane’s civic responsibility and civic engagement made Broward a better community, and her wisdom, guidance, and leadership will be missed.
Diane’s service will be held at the
Star of David Cemetery
