Unfortunately, we have some sad news to report on this morning. EBONY Magazine recently announced the passing of their Managing Editor, Terry Glover who lost her battle to cancer this past Christmas Eve. The news came as a shock to many. Mrs. Glover joined the EbonyJet team as Senior Website Editor back in 2006 and was promoted as EBONY‘s Managing Editor in 2009.
Terry graduated from Northwestern University, where she received her B.A. in radio, television and film. During the course of her career, she served as a staffer as well as a freelancer for publications such as The Chicago Tribune, Playboy, Uptown Magazine, and Savoy Magazine.
According to The Chicago Tribune, Mrs. Glover died of colon cancer at her home Bronzeville, Chicago. She is fondly remembered by her colleagues at EBONY and will truly be missed.
“Terry was the heart and soul of the EBONY team. She was one of the best editors I’ve ever worked with, and had a lovely kind demeanor and a fabulous sense of humor. The EBONY team will feel her absence every single day,” Amy DuBois Barnett, Editor-in-Chief of EBONY expressed.
“Terry touched many with her warm spirit and glowing smile during her six years with Johnson Publishing. Her contributions to EBONY were innumerable and her passion shone through in everything she did. Terry will be greatly missed,” said Linda Johnson Rice, Chairman of Johnson Publishing Company.
“I was struck immediately by her physical beauty,” Terry’s widower, Kendall Glover said as he recalled the first day he met her over twenty years ago in an airport. “We arranged to meet again after our travels and have been together ever since.”
The publication plans to print a memorial in honor of Mrs. Glover in their upcoming issue. Terry leaves behind her husband Kendall Glover and two daughters Parri Finister and Maya Glover.
Our prayers are with the Glover family.
