Elaine Karen Pedersen Glover

April 20, 1924 — January 28, 2016

Elaine Karen Pedersen Glover, M.D., was born to Peder Edward Pedersen and Sylvia (Radtke) Pedersen on April 20, 1924 and died on January 28, 2016. Dr. Glover was an accomplished soprano and pianist as a young woman, a star in her medical school class (graduating in 1949 from the University of Wisconsin Medical School), a skilled and caring medical doctor holding board certification in internal medicine, and a bright and loving mother and wife. She married Tom Glover in 1956 after a whirlwind courtship and moved with him from Wisconsin to his hometown in Spokane, WA, where she practiced medicine. They raised their family and remained married until his death, with Dr. Glover following her husband shortly thereafter. With her spouse and daughters, Dr. Glover maintained a successful Arabian horse ranch (Glovers’ Stethmir Arabians) from 1969. She had a great eye, choosing some of the operation’s most successful show and sales horses from the foals they raised and purchased. Dr. Glover and her husband loved to travel to horse shows everywhere, sometimes bringing home surprise horses from auctions in places as diverse as Edmonton, Alberta, and Scottsdale, Arizona. She loved dogs and cats throughout her life, particularly Bobby, Claire, Elsa, Witchy and Mitzi. Dr. Glover was preceded in death by her parents and by her husband, Thomas Glover, DDS. She is survived by her daughters, Sylvia Glover and Susan Glover-Neff (Steve Neff), and son, Tom Glover (Birchwood-Glover [Oliver] and their son, Sam), her brother, Niels Pedersen, his wife, Nancy Ann Pedersen, their children, Peder and Karen (and their spouses, children and grandchildren). The family especially thanks LeRoy Byrd, M.D., and his staff for their support and care over the years. No services are planned. The family suggests memorials to: Washington State University/College of Veterinary Medicine in support of the “canine orthopedic service or canine medicine in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital” (addressed to the College of Veterinary Medicine at P.O. Box 647010, Pullman, WA 99164-7010) (in appreciation for the care provided to Bobby); or Hospice of Spokane (in Memory of Elaine Glover, M.D.), Development Department, POB 2215, Spokane, WA 99210-2215.
