Carolyn Susan Glaubensklee
SEPTEMBER 26, 1953 – SEPTEMBER 18, 2019
CAROLYN SUSAN GLAUBENSKLEE, PhD was born in Pueblo CO on September 26, 1953 and was soon to be 66 years old. Her parents, Kelly E. Glaubensklee and Nina M. (Danna) Glaubensklee have predeceased her as has her half-brother, Jim L. Glaubensklee. She is survived by her husband, Robert D. Smith, her sister, Marilyn E. Glaubensklee, a cousin, Jeff S. Glaubensklee and Jim’s children: Eric (Deanne w/children); James (Kate w/children); Carrie (w/children); and William (w/children). Carolyn attended Colorado State University in Pueblo and earned her PhD in Medical Physiology at the University of New Mexico Medical School in Albuquerque. Her PhD work got her invited to England to present the concluding talk of a prestigious conference. She was chosen as a Cardio-vascular Research Institute fellow at the University of California in San Francisco also holding positions at UC Berkeley. She worked with talented mentors and became an accomplished researcher. She returned to teach in Colorado when her parents developed cancer, holding teaching positions at CSU-P as well as the Colorado College. While at CSU-P, she worked to advance their nursing program and earned her BS in nursing to serve that end. The whole auditorium went wild when she stood with the graduating nurses from the ranks of the faculty, after having just been named the ‘Faculty Shining Star’ for that year. After her parents’ deaths, she launched her medical educator career at Rocky Vista University in Parker CO where she was a founding faculty member. She then moved to AZ to join the faculty of AT Still University in Mesa and eventually moved to NV to become one of the founding faculty of Roseman University Medical School. Her passion has always been students and the joy of teaching and making their learning easy & fun. She presented at the IAMSE conference in Milan in 2014 where she took her special brand of intellect and charm global. And she was just as passionate about developing curriculum that was relevant and effective for the broadest base of students. Her research and teaching made her very aware when she was diagnosed with head and neck cancer in late 2015. But it didn’t stop her. She was ALWAYS active in supporting charities, especially those involving cancer treatment. She wrote papers and applied for grants and worked tirelessly for her students, in all areas of health professions. She is the most authentic person you could ever meet. Truth is immutable for her and people were the most important to her. People would confide in her and she would genuinely try to help them. She is truly loved by so many people. A true gift. But she also liked to have fun. She loved to cook and entertain friends and family. She was great fun to travel with, since she liked new adventures. She also liked to play slot machines at the casinos and she often worked gambling themes into her student workshops. And she made the most beautiful ‘diaper cakes’ for her expecting friends. But let’s not forget that another great passion was real estate. Carolyn had an eye for purchasing homes that are beautiful and good investments as she moved from job to job. These also gave her an opportunity to exercise her interior decorating talent. So much talent, so many interests, she just needed more time. She was an accomplished researcher, an accomplished educator; but most of all she was an extraordinary person to know and have in your life. She WILL BE MISSED SO MUCH!
